Westsail 32 Engine Repower / Replacement
As many vessels were sold in in complete ‘kit’ form, the engine type and size can vary widely. Anywhere from 25 to 40 hp has been used. Volvo and Perkins were common.
The Beta 38 is the preferred engine replacement for the Westsail 32 . It produces all the power required for excellent motoring. The aperture prevents more than a 16” diameter propeller from being used. The lower gear reduction and a prop with a bit more pitch than usual works very well. With plenty of room in the engine compartment, the Beta 38 is easy to access and maintain.
Beta offers rear mounts specifically designed to work with the unique engine beds found on most Westsail 32 builds.
THINGS TO KNOW
- Beta has special rear mounts available.
