Yamaha 150hp 4 stroke vs. Suzuki 140hp 4 stroke


I'm in the process of powering my new boat and need some advice regarding reliability and fuel consumption of the above two motors.

The Yamaha weighs 216kg's and the Suzuki weighs 189kg's. The boat can comfortably hanlde both the weights, so it isn't a issue.

What are your experinces or recommendations??

Remember Suzuki have just brought out a new 150hp to replace the 140, so you might be better off comparing that with the Yammie. There should be some good deals on the outgoing Suzi 140's though.
