I see you are wintering in the Canaries again Rick, and having Christmas day on SN. All the best, Norm.

... seems like some sort of a V20 engine to me. The design of the hatches and the gauge panel make me wonder if this isn't a Yanmar model of some sort. Unfortunately, I didn't found Yanmar's website that much user friendly...! =/
Nice photo (as usual!!).

Pedro,
It's a 20 vee RK 270 engine built by what was Ruston Diesels, now MAN. 7.2mW at 1050 RPM.

... I think I'm losing some skills.
Right...!
Following your post , a quick google search for something like "9200025 main propulsion", I found that, even though these engines look much like Yanmar's design, they're actually MAN 20RK270M MKII... as you said! Question solved!
Thank you Doxfordman!! Take care!
=)
