How about a couple of Yamaha 100hp 4-strokes? Too heavy at 170kg each? West Wales Yamaha Marine : Outboards : Chandlery : Servicing : Boat Packages : Neyland : Pembrokeshire

Still a Yamaha 90hp 2-stroke here... that's one down one to find!

What was wrong with the Yamahas? Fishery patrol ribs usually seem to use Yam 2 strokes so I guess they are well regarded.

Price shown is per engine at 163;6665.00 plus VAT. Price for the two engines is 163;13330.00 plus VAT

HOW MUCH!!

I guess the rendering of the "" symbol is screwy and should be 6665.00 and 13330

How heavy was your boat in this setup? If I may ask?

My Honda 225 weighs in at 275kgs... Less than twins would be.

It's going cheap

I've just brought in a Yam 90 2 stroke. 2004 with 97hrs. May be looking to move it on soon if that helps complete the set!
