Congratulations on the "new" boat. Many of the early Yankee 30s came with an Albin engine, which you'd be hard pressed to fine. Most of the later boats have or had an Atomic 4, which fits nicely. Or you could find a small diesel, 15-16 hp is adequate. The only concern is the height, since it needs to fit under the seat, but a number of Yankee 30s have diesels of different manufacturers.
By the way, where are you located? Name of your boat? Your name?
