Because 4 strokes tend to swing bigger props which offer more thrust at lower speeds - 2 strokes are prob better suited to higher speed applications.

I think your "generalising" a bit there.

Yeah, chuck that over-weight biffer of a Verado off and replace it with an XS300 and you'd go even quicker and burn less fuel.

I have had a large 2 stroke and certainly would not go back to it. The power delivery of the Verado is very smooth and very quiet. If the boat is for family days out you WILL want a QUIET reliable engine.

Will you not get either of these with anything other than a Verado?

I know commerical operators that had Yamaha's went to Suzuki on price and very quickly back to Yamaha because of ease of maintenance and reliability.
I run my Yamaha's to 3000 hours then change them and put more of the same on the boat.
Or change the boat aswell if that is tired.
