I have been thinking about replacing my MD 2010 with 120 S saildrive and think it may be time to increase power ,
but am unsure if an MD 2020 / D1- 13 would fit on the existing mounts ? has anyone done this conversion upgrade ?

I had a Hanse 301 with a 2010 engine fitted. I have also sailed one with a 2020 fitted and as far as I remember the bearers were the same distance apart but the 2020 engine was slightly longer with the front feet mounted slightly further forward. Both were saildrive models.

The 2020 is obviously a longer engine; the forward mounts are 74mm further forward. Otherwise, the width between the mounts is identical.

The D1-30 is also about 70mm longer than the 2010, but again the width between mounts is the same.

If you ask a VP dealer, they'll be able to tell you of any potential difficulties - they're doing this sort of replacement all the time.
