    Any thoughts / reviews of '81 Hatteras 43 with 6v92 turbos. Hull or power concerns? Engines have 2000+ hours. Thanks for the help.

    Like the boat. Heavily built. Is that 2000 SMOH? If so how many?

    What Hp rating?

    The 6V92's are good motors at the lower HP rating of 435. If they are bumped up to 500+, they don't last long at all. Great hull, no issues there. I am about to buy the same boat, a 1979 hull with the 435's.
