looks like this could be the next key west to cancun record holder. I would love to go to diesels and asds in my next boat.

Looks like those diesels and Arnesons are a nice package! I agree with the others and would love to see three of those in a 51 open cockpit, Marauder or a Nor-Tech 50.

That's a great question. However, since the boat will be based in England, like its owner, I imagine getting Fiat Powertrain service is easier there—if for no other reason than proximity to the source—than it would be here. For whatever that's worth.

And it is essentially a Cummings motor.

Thats what I thought also,when I saw this FPT 560 first time in Italy at Fabio Buzzi,s ,but although it looks identical to a Cummins 5,9/6,7 (the FPT is also 6,7L) the bore and stroke seems to be different ... Fiat/FPT has a jointventure with Cummins ,anybody has some more input on this?

It is based on the Cummins. I work for Outerlimits and have talked with the FPT rep's and mechanics.
