    Default Value of NOS BETA 20 diesel

    Anyone have any idea what a 12 year old never out of the crate BETA 20 HP diesel engine might be worth? It's got the Atomic four mounts and a 2:1 reduction gear.

    I'd guess, for folk like me that would prefer a diesel not loaded with computer bits, it may be worth more than new.

    If it's truly new, I'd ask its supplier whether there's any warranty.

    It's been in someone's garage since it was purchased from the BETA dealer in CT. I can't imagine there would be a warranty in effect.

    New or not, to a buyer it is a 12 year old engine. Some credit for never leaving the crate, but even so, I can't imaging paying more than 1/3 the cost of a new 20 hp diesel.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Too bad it's not 30+ hp. The original Albin-25 had a 21-hp Albin engine, and owners still using them have no complaints. However, the subsequent Volvo-Penta 35hp motors in the Deluxe Model certainly yield better performance. As for being 12 years old, my Albin is 42 years old, so the Beta motor in question is only 1/4 that; a veritable spring chicken.

    Hi Roger, I hope all is well. Bill R and I sailed Tao out to Greenport and back last week, your name came up.
    20 years ago I bought a NOS crate Yanmar SB12 for $1600, iirc.
