Optimax 200 or Yam V200 ????

I'm getting a 7.2M RIB and have yet to decide which engine.... i have short listed these two.... i've heard that:

Optimax: not as well built, less refined, lighter, ultimately faster
Yam: better built, more grunt, heavy, 2k more

What would you choose and why ???

Are you interested in the Yamaha Vx200 or the Vmax 200? They are two very different engines!

yamaha

hi spoke to yamy main office in UK yesterday who advised only the ones in europe already will be available as they are NOT 3 star rated, might be worth checking availability as the 250 di are gone now apparently!

I heard that too Mike ! something about EU regs... f****ng belguim brigade !!

Apprently... the 200hp is approved... and as such i should still be able to get one... there is only 1 left in the holland depot apprently !!?? but not sure if thats a cunning sales pitch...

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 !

In that case, go for it! Check out the specs, I'm sure it's lighter than an Opti 200. Just be aware that you can't get an XL.
