Review of the 90 / 115

See this site for a review by Andy Clark - an occasional contributer to PBO:

http://www.bosunsmate.co.uk/suzuki_115.htm

I haven't managed to put many hours yet on my DF90 - so about the best I can add is that it has always started first time even if unused for > 8 months. Certainly no problems so far - touch wood.

Try PA Lynch in Morpeth. I know he has just had a delivery of a range of new Suzuki's and is keen to sell. Nice bloke and keen to barter! Could be worth travelling for...you can only ask.

Had 115 last year and a 200 this year. Never missed a beat and would have another one tomorrow if I wasn't into diesel...
200 hp has done 130 hrs this year and is brilliant.
Suzuki currently doing deals, so talk to your dealer.
Quiet and economical .

Sounds intriguing Peter! Does this mean you are changing your boat?

(I know - I'm incredibly nosey!)

After about a month and 3 weeks of not using my boat cos of rubbish weather, Peter and I went down river last Sunday since the wind speed was below 10 knots - really nice trip.... nice and warm too on the river.

mms://media.ribseadrive.co.uk/cruise_21-11-04_small.wmv <-- it will stream in Internet Explorer if you paste the link in.

As usual, the engine worked perfectly, and didn't even take any more than normal turning of the engine to start, despite not having fired in ages.

DF140 on my boat.

I love it. Smooth, Quiet, Controlable,

I'd buy another.

Fuel consumption - well lots of variables but a good bit less than a litre a mile for me

I've got a 70 on the back of Medline 1, brilliant quiet and economical although first service was over 250!! was I ripped off? the kill switch is particularly effective expecially when you don't realise you have pulled it out and you are drifting towards the chain ferry on windermere
