    Here is an interesting variant on the 'standard' Potter 25 - she is for sale in Falmouth with an asking price of GBP 10k.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FISHER-PO...R/232783772838

    They say that she has a 33 hp inboard Vetus diesel engine, but she also has quite a sizable outboard motor hanging on a bracket on the transom.

    Here is some more info about the Vetus diesel :

    What's the difference between Fisher 25 and Potter 25?

    It really is not a problem fitting a modern engine. Thousands of boats have had it done and new engines are far superior..

    You do tend to see problems that are not there.
    I think it's rather that he is just looking for a solution that minimises costs, not an unreasonable approach surely?

    That is the whole point. If the engine needs replacing there is no significant cost penalty to fit a modern engine. The mods required to the beds are minimal. The only replacement that is a direct fit is another one of the same type, but the chances of finding one significantly better are slim and the problems of running such an obsolete engine stay the same.

    Cabin size and layout. Potter normally has little or no saloon but a big open deck.
