Fiat Marine Diesels


Post by moose60 » 12 years ago

I'm looking to buy a gillnet boat for SE Alaska, and have been looking all around the WA and BC coasts for a while. I just looked at a boat today that is close to what I'm looking for. One concern that I have is that it is (over) powered by a 370hp Fiat diesel. I'm familiar with the reputations of most of the American HD diesels, Volvos and the Japanese offerings-but no one has told me stories about Italian diesels.

Anybody have experience w/ the Italian goods? Reliable? Leaky? Loud? (like a jimmy?) Impossible to find parts?

My camera crapped out so I lost the model numbers.

Any help is appreciated.
