Im going to look at a 1993 35s5 next week. So far through my research I’ve heard mixed things about the Volvo Penta 2003 engine and that the headliner tends to fall down. Anything else I should be aware of on an initial look?
Volvo Penta engines are pretty good. Have had 4 on 2 different 1984 boats. To dismiss any concerens about the engine suggest getting an engine survey, which is what I did prior to purchasing my recent boat. A good marine and rigging survey will ferret out any other issues. Good luck and let us know what you decided to purchase.
