Default 50 ft Welcraft Meteor

I am searching for anyone who know these boats and have
any experience with them.
I have just bought a 50 ft meteor that is ready for a complete restoration with new engines.
The plan is to put in 2 diesel engines.
So, if anyone has any suggestions, pictures, links or, well anything for this restoration project i would really appreciate to hear from you.
The boat is located in the US and will be moved to Norway later this year after.

For this project i am looking for the following: Diesel engines
, Drives, Trailer, Generator, Interior and so on.

Best Regards
Peder

Hope you considered how to get it CE approved, I hear Norway are really though on this subject.

Apart from that congrats on your purchase !

I would suggest discussing the your power and drive needs with Randy at Konrad as one option to consider. They had an engine drive package at the Miami Boat Show that might work.

If you need any other advice about the boat itself you could check with Todd at Revolution Marine. He has had a 50 Meteor for years. I think he is ready to sell it and try something different.

Thanks!
Yes it can be difficult, but if you do it by the book it is no problem. It will cost me around 5500 Usd, that includes making new manuals for the boat, and the actual inspection by the representative from IMCI.

I am looking at a pair of Seatek (600hp) Diesels,(used) but i have no experience with these so i dont know yet.

I am also considering Caterpillar or Cummins (450 - 500 hp),
Arneson would be nice, but they are very expensive.
