300 Hpdi

I have seen on a couple of threads that some of you have been looking at the Yamaha 300HPDI. And now that I have been able to get a more reasonable quote for it. I was wondering if anyone had taken the plunge bought one ?

Can't help you on the 300 but we're very happy with our 200 hpdi.

Are you thinking of putting it on your 5.85? If so, I hope you've got Teflon coated underpants!! And a reinforced transom.

I am do some research on engines for my new Scorpion.

Not entirely decided yet. Think probably 8.1. I have just reserved a build slot and I have 3 weeks to make the major decision like length, engine etc - Good fun but more stressful than work !

Thanks very much for your comment about our website. We love our boat and the only thing that could be better would be a bigger one!

Hope to see you out on the water once you get her - although we'll never be able to keep up with you if you get the 300!

Louise – Richard do you guys have his and hers PC’s or do have to fight for the keyboard ? My girl friend and I have the same problem with the helm ! No problem with the keyboard at present as she is still at work – someone has to pay for our new toy !

Richard tends to use the desktop one and I recline on the sofa with the laptop! Whereabouts do you cruise? We are Solent-based.

We keep our RIB at Cobbs Quay which is in Poole harbour. Hoping to keep the Scorpion there when we get it.

Do you happen to know what sort of litres per hour you use on your boat ? as the worst case scenario for the that have been quoted are frightening and a real world would be useful.

250 HPDI - 75 lph
300 HPDI - 105 lph
