Tony - I happened to have the RIB International New RIB Buyers Guide 2007 out for something else - here are the official List Prices.

All prices are EX VAT. And are obviously UK price rather than CI.

Suzuki 300 ......................... 12765 - 13062 depending on model (size?)
Verado 275/300................... 14464 (for 275, 300 not listed)
300xs................................ listed as POA
Yamaha 300/Vmax?.............. HPDI300 11284 ......no Vmax 300 listed but Vmax 250 is 11110 (~500 more than the standard HPDI250)

Hope that helps a little - of course price from the dealer may be completely different depending on how keen he is for a sale.

The Suzuki range usually have the most aggresive pricing so good discounts to be had.

I have the same dilemma - roughly the same size and weight boat as yours.

For me the choice has to be between the 300xs and the Suzuki. I think the Suzuki will prob favour heavier cruising boats and the 300xs lighter racing ones.

One big advantage of the Suzuki is that it has electronic controls - I am not sure if the Mercury can be fitted with them.

It may come down to easy availability - the 300xs can be a bit hard to get hold of as it's only allowed for racing and commercial in Europe because it doesn't quite meet the environment standards.

I like 2 strokes though............

Thanks for all the info.
I agree the yam 350 v8 is too heavy.
I followed a cougar with a Verado 275 on it and it sounded fantastic.
Then on the way back in yesterday a Sunseeker XS went past me, I was doing 47 knots and it left me for standing!!
I fancy a bit more oomph but knot quite sure where to fet it from...
