Volvo MB2 and OMC Saildrive Replacement Engine (Comment or Suggestion)
Posted by: F : Moussaillon - E : Ship's Boy Sean Brackstone (IP Logged)

I represent a british company called Marine Enterprises Ltd and one of our products is an engine called the saildrive 330. it is just like a Volvo MB2 50s, only it is now electric start with a 10Amp charging unit. It puts out 15hp but fits in the same space and even the same base unit as the original volvo engine. The volvo was based on a Honda engine and its replacement which is built in sweden is based on a Yamaha 15hp 4 stroke outboard powerhead. the engine weighs just under 50kg and runs on normal unleaded petrol. If there is any interest, please email me for a brochure and more information. We are the sole uk distributor so this engine is exclusive to Marine Enterprises Ltd.

What do you suggest?

Dear Graham

If you want do do it with the minimum of fuss then use a Saildrive 330. You will be able to use the same fuel tank and lines, controls and even the engine base (with a couple of small mods). It is much lighter than a diesel (only 50KG) and comes complete with instrument panel, key electric start, electronic choke, seasling ring, new engine base, 3 blade propeller... If you email me at marineenterprisesltd@ukonline.co.uk with your name and address i will mail you the brochure and price list. It may be more expensive than a diesel but you will have to make fewer modifications to the boat.

Best Regards

Sean Brackstone - Marine Enterprises Ltd

FYI: Suzuki P/N 17461-98501 (Sierra 18-3097) water pump impeller works as a replacment for MB2 saildrives. The major difference is this impeller has 6 fins vs. the orignal with 12. I have installed on and it work great!

Hi David,

I also tried the Suzuki impeller on my MB2 but it failed.

Was there anything else that I´m supposed to do to get it right

It simply wont pump any cooling water...

Regards,

Peter Stenberg

Hi

Peter Stenberg said that the impeller failed, did anybody experienced the same problem if so what happen exactly? I do not want to install an impeller and have to take the boat out of the water to replace it again.

Thanks for your help.

I was anxious to look at the spec of the 330 but it will not fit in my boat.

I own 3 MB2a/50S right now and I intend to sell one on demand. I bought one last summer for my friend but he sold his boat. If someone interested call me.

Hi

What do you mean by: a complete base??
Are talking about the fiberglass bed wich hold the engine in place ? If so, they are very rare.

dA friend of mine who live in Englan has one for rent. You pay the shipping and it's cost and get a refund when you ship it back. You make your own base by copying his.


I know he is pretty busy ath this time but you should try this forum:

Good luck

I presently own an O'Day 28 with an OMC two cycle sail drive engine. I would like information about replacing it with a newer engine - possibly a diesel saildrive. How do I get information about this? I am located in Western New York on Lake Ontario.

Can anyone out there tell me if they have ever heard of a Honda saildrive and if so, where I can find information. I have searched the Internet but , except for one picture of a Honda 280cc engine in an Antrim 27 I can find no further info. I am the proud owner of an OMC 16S10G which is attached to a Zephyr saildrive. This has been a wonderful little unit to this point but I am thinking it won't last forever. I'd love to know that the Honda is available in a saildrive and can be acquired for a reasonable price. Thanking anyone with information in advance.

As so many others it seems, I need information too about the sail drive 280 and how to get in touch with the people who build it or sell it. I presently have an OMC/zephyr sail drive unit and want to change it out. Sounds like the 280 would be a good fit. I'd appreciate and feed back regarding this upgrade
