    Hi

    Don't know much about the Cruisers except i looked at one before buying my Carrera. I do however know a bit more about the BMW B220 as i am about to remove mine from the boat. PH Marine are the only place to buy parts and given the scarcity of parts they are not cheap!

    I have had major problems with mine hence i am now changing it. A number of people i have spoken to have had problems with oil cooler and manifold. Check the water inlet pipe every year as they are plastic and prone to spliting.

    Sorry i cannot be more positive but the engine has been the bain of my life for the last year. If you do not have engine manuals let me know, I am happy to organise a copy for you as they are very useful! I may just have been unlucky and could have had the same problem with any engine.

    Thanks Will,

    You can also get parts from a place in the states, V12, who advertise on the net - just put "BMW Marine " into google.

    So far mine has been fine - lets hope it stays that way.

    I was aware of V12 and on two occassions i have emailed them and never had a response - hence i have only ever been able to get spares from PH Marine.

    Glad you have had no problems and PM me if you need the engine and sterndrive manuals

    I'm new to this forum (1st post) but not to boating which I've done, on and off, for about 30 years now. I live on the shore of a sea loch in Argyll and am thinking, seriously, about purchasing a 1989 Cruisers International 224 Holiday. She's recently been fitted with a new engine (Volvo Penta V6 GXiEP 4.3 litre), only done 67 hours, new outdrive with duoprop, new gauges, controls, etc., etc. Needs a bit of TLC in the cabin but I could spend time on this during the winter. She would be on a swinging mooring in front of the house during the summer and on a pontoon berth at my local marina during the winter. Any advice out there from existing or previous owners on this particular boat would be really useful. If I've missed out anything important just ask. Thanks.
