Engine Comparison | Yamaha Outboards
35" shaft= 999 lbs.
cant be that popular if hes selling after a season!
Threw up in my mouth a little.
I just got my Commercial Fisheries news in the mail today, and this boat is on the cover.The owner was raving about it in the article. I guess not so much.
Wow, I wonder what happened? The article seemed like it was doing everything the owner wanted.
Whether or not he likes the boat or how it performs or even if heWANTS to sell may not have anything to do with why he is selling. Doubtful too many people know why he is selling.
Clearly the boat performs with the outboard so it can be used as an example for others who want an outboard on a downeast boat.
No question that it goes like hell. I haven’t read the article or even seen it yet. The way its laid over making that turn doesn’t excite me though.
ski boat....must be missing part of the keel
Heck he may even be in the business of making money!
One year commercial warranty........
that engine weighs @1000lbs.
You could put (two) 2stroke outboards on for that weight. Have more hp, more torque and twice the ridiculousness.
Some value still left with 665 hrs after one season maybe? I would think not so much after 2-3 seasons when major maintenance, overhaul or a re-power is needed. As opposed to diesel. I suspect fuel economy would be brutal as well.
I don’t think fuel burn is brutal. I really think it’s great actually. That engine burns about 12gph at cruise. 21 knots at 12 gph is probably better than a diesel.
Dealer has to change the oil and filter....
Not true the consumer can change the oil and oil filter and it's pretty easy to do when on the trailer and if it's in the water you could suck the oil out.
It’s just funny that Yamaha recommends that a dealer do it. That is still a heavy maintenance regiment.
I had the dealership do my maintenance for the first six years, since Suzuki can deny any claims if you do it yourself (voids warranty). It is not that you can't do it, and need a dealership. They want to make money off you for 6 years in exchange for parts/labor if it breaks down.
What is the cost of that Yamaha vs. the cost of same diesel that will make similar speed, cruise, fuel, etc.?
Also, add cost of Prop, shaft, shaft seal, tube, rudder, rudder post, rudder seal, etc.
May be able to buy 2-3 OBs for cost of replaced running gear/engine. No?
