  • Volvo Penta AQ151 with 290 outdrive

    I'm trying to research the stated motor as far as good, bad, ugly, reliability etc. Any input would be appreciated. I see several Volvo vendors listed in the yellow pages. Anyone care to suggest any one of them in particular? Thanks for any help.

    I had 2 of those motors in a Seasport a few years ago. I have to say that they were a nightmare to maintain and all the parts were handmade by Swedish handmaidens. At least that's the impression I got given the prices they charged for that stuff. The boat that I had was in very good condition when I bought it and the motors had about 600 hours on them. I was happy to see that boat leave my yard. My current boat has Yamaha 115's and I couldn't be happier. Good luck and shop wisely.

      Well, I missed buying the boat that was "wearing it". Sounds like that might have been a stroke of good luck. Thanks for the input!
