Yamaha ME422 275hp Stern Drive Diesel


Anyone out there have a RedBay Stormforce Expedition 8.4? I am looking to get some fuel consumption numbers on this boat or a comparable boat with the same stern drive. I am looking to get some reliable numbers for traveling about 35 nautical miles one way in varying sea conditions. I'm thinking average seas will be 1-2 feet. I am looking at making the trip by boat versus the seaplane. The company I am joining is currently making the trip by seaplane. I will be making the roundtrip twice a week.

Thanks Chris
