Is It Time to Repower?

If you own older or unregulated marine engines, 2-stroke engines, engines with exceptionally high fuel usage, or older engines that operate in areas with lower air quality (near big cities), you should consider a marine engine repower. The benefits, both economic and environmental, will outweigh the cost. You can count on our expert marine diesel mechanics in Punta Gorda and South Florida to get the job done.
Benefits of a Boat Engine Overhaul
There are many benefits to repowering your yacht diesel engine. While many people are concerned with the marine diesel engine overhaul cost, a boat engine overhaul can result in savings. New engines reduce fuel usage, fuel costs, and emissions. New engines also comply with all EPA regulations. A rehaul or repower from an expert marine diesel mechanic in South Florida can improve your vessel’s reliability, reduce operating costs, and improve emissions.

Benefits of Rebuilding An Engine
Instead of purchasing a new yacht engine, many yacht owners will complete the repowering process by scheduling a boat engine rebuild or partial rebuild. One of the top benefits of rebuilding an engine instead of replacing one is that the diesel engine rebuild cost is typically much lower. If the engine you are rebuilding is a relatively new model, finding OEM marine diesel parts for it won’t be difficult. Another benefit of engine rebuilding is that the connectivity and compatibility with your vessel’s existing engine control unit and electrical system are easier to maintain than with a brand-new engine.
Marine Diesel Rebuilds and Overhauls
How do you know it’s time to repower? Marine diesel engines have very complex fuel and cooling systems. Oil streaks, discolored paint (indicating excessive heat), worn belts, and grime in the bilge are all warning signs that your engine needs serious help.
For older engines or engines with costly issues, it may be ideal to start fresh and repower your boat diesel engine. Our marine overhaul technicians at Marine Diesel Specialists and Gulf Coast Diesel can help with your overhaul or rebuilds.
