Uhoh! Not necessarily. I have a Yanmar 300 and Barrus made a point of specifying the Bravo 2 leg. Have had this running for just 75 hours now and the performance of my heavy 9m cabin RIB is better than I - and everyone else it seems - expected. Coupled with a 17.75 x 21 inch prop it has plenty of power for a 6+ ton RIB. With 500 litres of fuel and 5 adults the top speed of 34 knots was unaffected by the load.
Bravo 2X...just a thought.
