VOLVO PENTA AQUAMATIC DUOPROP
KAD43P/DP
6-cylinder, direct-injected marine diesel engine with charge air compressor.

"yea, an inboard is definately more reliable. Im not saying volvo legs are bad, in fact theyre probably the best on the market, but as with any leg, they are very high maintenance."
