    I evaluated a 460 around 2003-2004 and found it a very nice boat. However, the one the dealer had was equipped with the Cummins C-series engines, which I found were smoky, stinky, and noisy. I've been on a number of 410DAs with the 3126 and they're very livable engines.

    I posted this a few years ago. The article was published at the time the boats you are considering were built, so it's pertinent.
