Just bought a 250 opti today for my new Redbay 7.4 being built at the moment. A mate has a 225 and the acceleration is awesome so looking forward to trying the 250..

If the budget will stand it Iíd go 250 ETEC

5 year warranty
No servicing for 3 years (Opti will cost you more than a few quid for servicing)
Quieter than the Opti
Nice flyby wire I command throttle
Put an engine cover on if you donít like the colour

That NMEA display makes my Icommands look like a dash panel on a Fordson Major.

I'll leave the nav and fuel management to you then.

It's still in the mix.....I certainly liked the last one.With a predominately Black boat it does give me pause a bit. Not pushed for time so we'll see. Guages ect, DO look smart though!!
What are you running?

I had a spin on a rib with ICON.

It's a superb bit of kit. Worth the extra money just for that IMO
