Yamaha 200 FETOX

Any opinions/experience on this engine? I understand there were some problems with the HPDI variant (which has a Z prefix) but I think the one I'm looking at isn't HPDI.

What should I exepct fuel consumption wise on a 6.6m RIB at (say) 25kts cruise?

Is it cheap? There were quite a lot sold off last year at about 5k each, new old stock.

That probably explains why it's recently fitted. I guess it's a good engine but a bit cautious about running cost of a 200hp 2-stroke.
