    I didn't say that.
    People are more concerned about engine repair cost risk with powerful motorboats because the cost could be a significant proportion of the value of the boat.

    Anyone???
    I have rebuilt a D4 300, due to a broken piston this year. Read more "piston broke d4 300 at 420 hours". We ordered a long block from VP. Now after 20K € lighter I have 30 hrs on the new engine and everything works fine. Warranty for 2 years for the rebuilt engine...

    Sorry to hear that. However, your problems weren’t caused by excessive hours more like a duff engine.

    I bought the boat from new...And please believe me for the maintenance and service I did everything imaginable. Most issues I had are due to less use...
    I make 50-60 hrs. a year, and keep the boat in a hall for about 6 month during the winter period...
