Again I'm a little late with this reply........

.........but speaking from experience my Suzi 140 DF is a superb engine. My Med II ain't no feather weight yet the 140 tops me out at 40 plus knots - see attached.

In addition she's as quiet as a mouse - very fuel efficient and in my opinion one of the sexiest looking engines on the market at the moment.

That said, the grass is always greener on the other side and I would fancy a Varado.........

To be honest i wonder just how many of the engines on the market would reach their claimed HP if put on a dyno.

I remember reading the Yam 300hp was more like 270 in real life and I suspect it would be the same for most engines - the makers will give the best figures but so much depends on fuel/weather etc etc.

I have no axe to grind but the man at SAL Marine confirmed what you have said
Suzukis BHP is from the prop
Yamaha and Etec are from the crank
