1994 beneteau oceanis 351 engine?

I just purchased a 1994 beneteau oceanis 351 and was told she needed an alternator, the owner did not know what kind of engine and referred me to dock master who told me it had a Perkins m30 , can not find an alternator for this motor.
Looking at other 1994 351's it looks like they came with a Volvo Penta 2003T, so trying to find out what type of engine came in the oceanis 351 so I can get an alternator for it.
There has been no testing on it and might be s or to be fixed but may not so want to have one in case.
Can anyone tell me what alternator fits these boats?
Thank you

Step 1: look at motor and find out what it is.
Step 2: call distributor with model and serial number.

I appreciate the advice , was trying to figure out prior to getting the boat which is 4 states away and owner is out of country. Just though maybe beneteaus came with a specific engine in 1994 for the oceanis 351's
Thank you

I did get this boat and it has a perkins M-30 engine.
I am now looking to upgrade the alternator and was wondering if any other perkins M-30 owners have done this upgrade and what alternator and max amp was used. Seems as though this info is being kept s secret as not finding anything on this anywhere .
Any help would be appreciated
Thank you
Billy
