My local NAPA has it and we have a wholesale account there. The price shown on-line is a retail price. I would suspect that most NAPA's can get it because they cater to fleet, municipalities etc... I only chose it because it meets the Mitsubishi requirement and my engine block is a Mitsubishi not really a Westerbeke. Since converting to Rotella Ultra ELC I have had zero sludge issues but this is not to say that another diesel grade coolant would not perform the same or similarly.

Upon your advice, I ordered some Ultra ELC online to be picked up at my local NAPA here in Detriot Metro. The guy from the store called me later and apologetically said the distributor would only sell it by the case. He tried to change warehouse's mind, but they wouldn't budge. I ended up just getting the regular ELC instead. I don't know if this is a NAPA issue just locally for me, but disappointing nonetheless. I looked around and couldn't find anyone else that carried it.
