Any lightweight, 3 cylinder, 2 stroke, long shaft, such as Yamaha or Tohatsu, a 30hp will be ok, a 40hp will be great but a 50hp will be mental! Also PTT is a good idea.

There's a few Yamahas about at the moment but normally they are few and far between, there’s also a 40ph E-tec on ebay if you're in the money

Hi I have a Yam 50hp 2st which is great with PTT, my brother-in-law has a 40hp 2st without PTT & I can only just out run him, fuel used is very similar!

I used to have a mariner 60hp 2 stroke on my 4m searider & it went well with 4 divers onboard. But it would be fine with any 40hp? Good fuel consumption etc & plane easily if propped right?

I've got a 30hp Yam 2 stroke on mine, with PTT, and it's fine.

The Yammie 40V and 50G 2-stroke (3 carb) models were identical except for different carbs and larger exhaust manifold. A few Yamaha 40hp 2-strokes come on the market but the 50hp are quite rare, especially with PTT, a damn good engine.
