avon 7.20

Does anyone knows something about the quality of the Avon 7.20?
A friend of me wants to buy one, and likes to know if it is a good choice.
And what about Yamaha 200hp 4-stroke versus Honda.
thanks

niels

In my opinion, and I'm sure a few members of this site agree, Yamaha outboards are probably the best available.

Avon 720

The avon adventure 720 doesn't get a good write up, poor hull (made by bomabard) compared to the 560 and 620.

Doesn't get a good write up from whom?

Is it the design or the build quality that is poor?

Avon Adventure 720

Poor Hull Design, I think HMS tested it at RIBex (when the 720 was launched) and all of the Avon dealers say its very poor and every dealer i spoke to put me off buying one. BHG has the original demo boat and can't sell it.

It seems to me like avon wanted a bigger boat in the adventure range, got the hull from bombard and put tubes on it.
