The same issue as Chinese motorcycles/scooters compared to same traditional brands manufacturers.
Thought i would interject on this one as i have some experience with the brand in question:
I bought a Seapro 400RS rib from Bill Higham Marine and on their advice (as i was trying to work to a budget of under £5K) i had it fitted out with a 25hp Parsun 4 stroke, it's a very light weight boat which is exactly what i need for hand launch/recovery, whole outfit weight is just over 200KG with small 2 man console, steering, fuel etc. i have put about 200hrs on this boat and i love it!! got rid of my old faithful humber destroyer as i was struggling to launch/recover by myself and therefor not using it much. i must say i have not looked back, it's nowhere near as dry in any sort of a rough sea but what fun!!
In conclusion - good boat, good engine, good service. and yes, i would recommed a Parsun wholeheartedly
