No one talks much about the marinized VW diesel that MC offers. Is this only for other markets (non U.S.)?

Only a $30k upgrade, too!

Bingo, our family drives mostly diesel cars, we prefer them. But to justify spending $30K+ just to get the VW marine engine installed in the boat? Perhaps if you are going to own the boat for its entire lifetime and put several thousand hours on the boat, and lived in Europe, then it could make some financial sense. Here it will never payback the difference, nor does it have that many tangible benefits.

I would absolutely love to have one, and if it were say a 7K$ upgrade our family would buy one.

Saw one add in CA for a used X15 diesel, good deal too. Turned out to be a typo! :( I wanted a diesel....It was only about $5k more than the comparable boats I was looking at.
