Yamaha, come out of the closet and admit the major problems and start giving your customers some proper support before you recieve some very bad press !!!
Have a look at my Yamaha story...
Rib gallery - "What rib is this"

What RIB is this one??

SO DON'T BUY ANYTHING WITH ALL OF THE 3 WORDS: YAMAHA - HPDI - 3,3 LITRE (250 and 300 Hp). A friend of mine (also Rib Charter) experienced just the same problems...

And I can't understand how Yamaha have managed to keep this secret?
I was a loyal customer for a long time... but 3 blown engines later I am not..

Honda 225 4-stroke next time.

Really don't go to Honda 225. One guy around here had them in his RIB and used to charter the boat. The business went pretty bad since the engines were down almost all the time. Honda experiences are very bad indeed. Have you seen big Hondas in commercial heavy-duty boats? No. Wonder why?

If you want a very reliable engines, Yamaha F225 seems to be one of the potential choises. I know the HPDI problems, but I have also proved over 1000h of trouble-free F225-hours in different boats. Not in my hands, but I have seen how the engines work like swiss watch in friends' boats.

BTW, do you mean Yamaha V-Max HPDI 250 or ordinary HPDI 250s when speaking about big problems? I mean there has been no report of ordinary HPDI 250 going down but as far as I have seen, V-Max HPDI 250 is in the same class as HPDI 300.

Oh yes, many probs, try search 250 hpdi on google for example, you will find many probs with both 250 and 300 hpdi.

are there also problem with te 150 and 200 2.6 ltr ??

the 150 and 200 yamaha hpdi run good i have many hours without problems

are there some out there having problems with them ?

yamaha f 250 is coming and mercury verado 300 presurized 4stroke

if you want reliabilitie buy an engine that prooft itself

z200 f225 250ox66efi

maybe you can give them back the 2 300s and ask for 3 200 hpdi engines

good luck

I have been looking at all the threads on this engine thing with great interest
I am about to order an 8.5mts rib and have been thinking long and hard about the engine as i want to keep this boat long term 5/6 years i have always had Yamaha
and i have been running a F225 four stroke on a cobra 7.5 which as never missed a beat and fuel consumption at 35 kts is 1 and a quarter liters per mile
two up on a cruise full tank we do about 100 hours a season mostly water sking and short hops around the solent but next year we want to cruise over to France and the Channel Islands.
I was looking at Honda 225hp with the 5 year warrenty or a Suzuki 250hp
As this is a big investment for us i want to get it right. every body i talk to that have a Suzuki say it the best same for the honda I am not looking for the fastest just reliability and back up should some thing go wrong, am i looking for the impossible.Would realy appreciate some feed back
Roy.

Thank`s for advice.
I had a 200HPDI, running hours around 350 in 5 months without one single problem, that`s why i went for the 300HPDI.
Tji got i, they are for sale, someone interested
Its not possible to return them unfortunetly.

Why not the new 250 fourstroke, you can get a 5 year warranty at Yamaha also?

The F250 is coming out as it looks now in beginning of june 2005.
Cant find the link now but i read somewere on Yamahas homepage that you can transfarable (do you spell like that) from 2 to 5 years after the first 2 years.
I think they go into engine and se enginehours and how the engine has been used and then you can get the 5 year.
I think it was on the american site but it should be the same over the world.
I can be wrong but this was how i understod it.
Check it up at your closest dealer, they should know.

Maybe someone els here know?

No experience of the Honda, have a friend that uses the Honda and he had some probs with them, Suz is great, we have been driving the 250 Suz for around 350 hours without any problems.
