Cat for the Nordhavn 56 Motor Sailer

The Nordhavn 56 motor Sailer has a Lugger, John Deer for its main engine. Has anyone know of a Cat that has been the main engine for this trawler?  This type of vessel is usually powered by a low horsepower engine, around 250 horsepower, from what I understand.


The Nordhavn 56 motor sailer is a trawler equipted with sails and is something that fits our lifestyle. They're manufactured in China, which I'm not pleased about, seeing that I can not find a similar craft made in the USA.


 i have no expereince with the Lugger or John Deer power plants. Cats, on the other hand, I do have experience with and they are very dependable.
