Mariner 40hp 2 Stroke

Has anybody had any experience with this engine (latest model) - good or bad?

Im looking at both the 2 and 3 cylinder models although im not sure what difference there will be between the two apart from weight.

Fuel/oil figures would be good if anybody roughly knows them along with some info on noise and performance etc...

Im assuming reliability is good as the RNLI have always used them...

Thanks for the info.

For what reason do you say that your Merc 50 is better than your previous engine?

I believe that the 40 mariner 3 pot is just a black detuned version of this right?

What type of fuel returns do you get?

Cheers

Mariner 40 's two stroke

I have run three pairs of these engines over 15 years. They were well maintained and I never had cause for complaint. They have a great two stroke roar at full chat which is hard to beat. The only niggling complaint was the oil reservoir under the hood is a bit small - the slow running alarm comes on at about one third full, this can easily be disarmed.

If you end up with these engines - I have a workshop mannual for these engines going spare.

Cheers

I have one of these; an ex-RNLI one as Dan commneted on though mine has PTT, electric start etc. I belive these are avalible from time to time as they are used on RNLI boarding boats (see below). As for fuel it isnt too bad at all. I've done trips from Great Yarmouth to Lowestoft and back (about 25 miles) in quite nasty conditions and still had a third of a 22l tank left.
