They are heavy and dear, Try an Optimax or if you want 4 stroke a Suzuki/Yamaha

Hi guys,

I am not known with the prices of the outboards at your side of the sea, but I know one thing, the Honda is the same wheight as the Yam ( about 270 kg). I am not sure about the Suzuki I only know they make a 250 hp 4 stroke!!!!!!

How much is a new honda 225 over there becoulse I want one too!!
good luck with your new outboard

Arne

The list price on the honda 225 is 12500 sterling, still chasing a price on the yamaha/suzuki.
On the wehight thing, the yam and the honda are the same. Is the suzuki quite new as it doesn't seem to have the spec on their web site ??

thans for the price on the honda, as you sad it is the "list" price so I think it could be shoped for less??
About the suzuki I read an advertisment in R.IB. International the sept/oct in which the suzuki guys launched there new 250 at the southampton boat show. They claim it to be the most lightweigt and most powerful 4-stroke. But I it won't chance me looking for a new honda 225!!

good luck on engine shopping

IT is my understanding that Honda measure power at the crankshaft, where as the other manufacturers measure Hp at the prop.....this I believe means that a Honda 225 is less powerful than a Yamaha and certainly nothing like as much bang for buck/punt/guilder/euro as an Optimax.

The Camel Boat is a particular example where you have an already very heavy hull, driven by a heavy and modestly powered engine. The boats were relatively expensive and still are ( they trade for around 17.5.k ) and if you throw to much money at them to re-engine you will bring the cost of the Boat up to 30k and you don't have a chance of seing that outlay back in a month of Sundays. If you go the Optimax route then you can reduce the total outlay to 25k and you should be able to get 20 for it in a couple of years time

However as they say in these here parts "you pays your money and you takes your choice"

As I said you pay your money and you takes your choice and to be honest, I just know I wont buy another Honda 4 stroke as I genuinely believe there are engines out there more suitable for RIBS.

Fatboy
I have the misfortune to own a Camel boat and am very disappointed with it in terms of performance and upkeep. There are a lot of other people around here with them, many of which are beginning to have the engines changed.

Nobody that I know has chosen a larger Honda for a 6.5 Camel boat and I have seen Yamaha, Evinrude and Mercury re-engines. The most succesful modification was done by a Guy called Tim who runs a charter company called Ribmaster in Portsmouth. He put a 200 v6 Merc on and took out the rear tank replacing it with a single seat. (giving 7 seats in all). It really goes and lets the hull prove itself.

when you are selling the engine don't forget they seem to be popular in Holland too.
