Full Review:

Our Perkins 4.236M is the second engine of the same brand and make fitted to our 43′ displacement yacht. An honest, robust unit 100% mechanical engine that saw 70.000 units manufactured worldwide. This ensures parts are readily available and mechanics with adequate knowledge to effect repairs. Not the quietest or efficient engine but makes up for this in raw power. Very forgiving in terms of quality of fuel which can be a showstopper when cruising in remote parts.
