If you had asked me ten years ago what I thought of a Volvo marine diesel, I would
have told you that it belongs on a farm tractor in Sweden, not on a boat. The last
few years have seen a marked change. So much change, in fact, that I’ve become a
real fan of the engines coming off of Volvo’s production lines. And it’s not only
me. As a professional yacht captain and a marine surveyor, I get the chance to hear
lots of scuttlebutt. From owners to brokers to mechanics, it seems that all I hear
are positive comments about these motors.
