yamaha stern drives

I supose this is an Alan Priddy Question,

But I cant find info on the web in relation to the full range of stern drives that they do.... Its no problem finding out about the 165-240hp motors, but the 280 Alan runs and the smaller units????

I will be using this info for research into the next Rib...

Hi Tim

Yamaha only make the 165 and the 240hp sterndrives, there's no in between or over. Alan may have had the power increased on his but they are not in production as yet any way.

If " YOU DON'T CARE HOW MUCH PETROL COSTS" , why on earth would you want a dirty, smelly old diesel ?

Keep an eye open, there is a new range of power units about to come out. Do not know when but it is on the cards. Alan P

It would make sense for yamaha to make a more powerfull range. Thats the reason we did'nt go for one in our boat. A nice big 350hp or something would be great.

Diesel is the way.

I DONT CARE HOW MUCH PETROL COSTS, because nothing is going to stop me using my rib.............Dirk

I want to go diesel as 1 its cheeper and 2 its availiable everywhere

Alan... I thought that Yamaha did a 280hp stern drive also, but it wasnt sold in europe or the US. I found a web site about a year ago with about 6 yamaha stern drive options inc 280hp, I think it was some where in Dubi or somewhere in that region, but for the life of me I cant find it again....

Volvo.... I had very expencive experance with them.....all there parts are odd and even the bearings are not standard, or the rings, nothing is, so you are stuck with expencive parts..... even the enjectors and pumps are one offs......ouch, including the lift pump diafram, i think I paid about 30 for one of these, instead of 6-7......... so you can keep volvo

At least the yamaha is a Land Cruiser motors with some bolt on goodies. and you will find yanmar in a lot of other things too, Diggers, dumpers , genies etc
