    I looking to purchase a 60 ft catamaran. It is basically just a hull. I would like some recomedation on the best way to repower the boat. Fuel economy is a main concern with dependability. I m not interested in sailing just a nice cruising boat. Any advice would be great Thank in advance

    Well, in just about all repower cases that don't involve outboards or insanely high speeds, my pick goes to the modern diesel engine. Without knowing more about the boat it's hard to get more specific.

    another tip- looking at the brokerage page for that thing (care to post the link on the thread here?), GET AN INDEPENDENT SURVEY! It'd be money well spent.
