    Default market for used motors?

    So I'm thinking about repowering with the newer Volvo d-4 engine. I currently have the KAD32 170 horse and I really need another 20-30 horse on the boat. Engine is 6 years old but has extremly low use ~ 290 hours. Am wondering what sort of market there is out there for a perfectly good motor?

    Are there any upgrades available for more HP with your present engine? Turobchager? bigger fuel pump? Programming?

    Repowering to a newer motor especially to a Volvo d-4 is going to be spendy ($35,000.00). Although the D-4 is a impressive motor package. You may be better of selling your boat and buying one that better suits your needs. What type of boat do you own?
