I found the perfect 62 4 state room boat but I am worried about the engine hrs. I sold my 100 slip marina in Michigan off lake Michigan and are ready to somewhat retire. The boat has 671TIB Detroits in it with very close to 5000 hrs. My budget is around 250k and the boat is 280k. I can handle the 30k extra but will be hurting if I need a complete rebuild on the engines. I plan on living aboard her in the summers around the Detroit area and do high end charters to Cedar Point, Put-In-Bay and Niagara Falls. My question is can I get another 1000 hrs out of them before a rebuild or am I playing Russian roulette. At close to 10K per 5 day charter I only need 1000 more hrs for the rebuilds. Also any estimates on the rebuilds would be nice. I dont know if the engines can be pulled easily but it is a stand up engine room with a lot of space for a in frame.
