and it is the VMax HPDI 200hp that i am refering to Richard B....

if anyone has any alternatives... or one sitting in their stock room then please let me know... Although i hear the Dealer meeting is in 3 weeks which may or may not reduce the price of the 06 models... should there be any left... and prices... the best i've got so far is £9,950... then another 600ish for controls ect... getting it fitted on to the 7.2M Leeway - and no, i don't want your opinion on the boat !
I'm 100% sure you could get a 200 opti for a lot less money

the opti is over 2k cheaper... but i plan to have the rib for 10+ years (i've had this one for 28 years with only 2 mercury outboards - a blue band 40hp - classic bit of kit... and a 1995 50hp ept) and i use it twice a week... so i'd rather fork out a few grand more and be happy with it i reckon

Why go with an Opti then? Surely the more modern technology of an Etec would more "future proof"!
