Avon Supersport

Does anyone know what the max recommended transom (engine) weight is for an Avon supersport 340? (Solid hull (rib) rather than Sib)
The data isn't up on the Avon website as its an old model.


Cheers chaps

Jimmy

I suspect that a 25 and a 30 are very similar if not identical weights and capacities. They usually restrict the output with different carbs etc.
