We have some charter ribs with twin engine. The suz I have seen was not impresive. silens but no torch. I'm using mercury verado's 2x275 and 2x250
The torch in the engine is realy good.
I can't see why the other engine markes are going for power steering and fly by wire. when it is not working.? or
I belive that it is the best 4 stroke right now. (it will also come in 300)
I have been racing agenst the Yam 2x300hpdi with the 2x250verado and with no prob sailing from him.
Verado. downs: hevy. big torch(strong transome). more money. litle more fuel with full trottle.
Verado. Ups: price incl. power steering/hemp/cables/cylinder (no extra cost) fly by wire. the torch. easy to setup.(no cable ajustment)
I went from Etec 250 to verado's 250 and now 275.
For me it is the speed and torch. and with 14 people in the rib we can do 60kn. that fine with me
