New boater


New member
Well not really a new boater because I own a a Cadorette Holiday 250 but I'm looking for something bigger. My preference would be a Chris craft 47 diesel but they are rarely cheap.
I'm going to look at a Egg Harbor 40 FDMY that has been repowered with Ford Lehman 2704E and is not totally in running condition.I don't know more for mow. Owner bought it as is and towed it to the marina to live aboard.
Are the engines a good choice for this boat? It probably had the twin 454 cruisader 350hp before I guess.

Your opinion on the set up and engine choice.

I'm not looking for speed bot for economical low speed cruiser.
