Engine for a Revenger 27 or 29

I just got information from Revenger. I would like to know what you should do in my situation.
2 adult, and 3 children (11,13 and 16) is the family. I donīt know wish engine/engines I should go for inboard/outboard. Also many trips alone...

If you have a Revenger 27/29 tell me what you have and give me some word about it...

I want a good speed and some economy in it. My dream is to put 2 x 300 yamaha 2-stroke! But if you put one...whatīs the result? Compare to 2 x ? Or should I go for a single 200-250 4-stroke or a 2-stroke? Do you have any speed from a inboard? Maybe a inbord petrol?

Right now it looks like the Yamaha F250 or a Suzuki 250 4-stroke.

Dont go for the Yamaha 300 HPDI yet, i dont really know if they sort their problem out with thoose engines.
What i also should do is to call a insurance company like Atlantica and check what the price will be per year if you are looking for a boat with economy in.

PS: Insurances in Sweden i think are way more expensive than in the UK.

For example:

A 7m boat with a 250hp, speed around 52-53 knots and value around 35,000 GBP will cost around +2,000 GBP per year.

engine

i would have a look at putting the e-tec on there much more power, i think if you put 2 x 225 e-tec's on there you would get around 75mph if not more (do hold me to that)

we fiited 2 x 225 to one of our ribs 9m which has a hull beam of 2440mm and that pushed 65/ 70 mph

I would go for Evinrudes as well if I had the money. 2 engines are the way to go if you can justify spending so much money - if not you wont lose much speed with just one - get a small 9hp as a back up.

Why not a Verado 275 ?

It has much more like Smartcraft, servo steering and DTS. Yes it's more expensive but is building a good reputation.
I didn't hear any problems what so ever about this engine.

If you use the boat for cruising at high speed I would really consider this three extra's.

I would also stick with one engine in stead of two.

Some more thinking...

How fast is a Revenger 27/29 with one 225 Yamaha 2-stroke/4-stroke? And if you put 2 on? Fuel consumtion with one at topspeed must be around 1,6-1,8 litres/nm. And economic in "around" 35-40 knop, 1,2-1,3 litres/nm. And with 2 it canīt go 2x? My guess is topspeed with 2 engines will take 2,7-2,9litres/nm. And economic 2,0litres/nm.

I will never have so much weight on the boat!

Another engine choise! Volvo Penta/Mercruiser 5,7! and 320hp must go very good! What do you have to say about the speed and fuel consumtion. The dieselengine must be 2 times more expensive to buy. If you looking at the yanmar 315 and compare it to the Volvo/merc.

Speed 225 hp (one) Fuelconsumtion?
Speed 225 hp (two) Fuelconsumtion?
Speed Mercruiser 320 hp (one) Fuelconsumtion?

if you where to go for diesel i would go for the yanmar 315hp with a bravo 3 rather that the volvo you will save your self around 4/5k, the yanmar is around 14k mark.

The Yanmar-engines are good, but not sure about the Merc.-drives! Broken to many myself-this year!
If inboard, then go for something strong on the outside. If ob, go for one big engine, saves you a lot of gas-money. We run 2x250 on our Revenger 29 and will have the same on our next Revenger, but we carry from 10 - 20 passsengers..
If the rib had been for personal use, it would have had a 250-275. The Revenger can make up to 52 knots with one 250 ob, which is very good. We have tested an other 9m. rib and it did 52 knots with 2x225. Choosing the right rib saves you the cost of one engine and a lot of gasoline.
