Brief Summary

You'll find John Deere diesels aboard commercial and fishing vessels the world over, so if you are considering re-powering you should definitely look into this brand. Deere's PowerTech 6068 series comprises models from 158- to 400-hp, in both heat-exchanged and keel-cooled version. FYI -- the last five years or so they have become very popular among builders of trawlers and long range cruisers, so John Deere must be doing something right.
