Is the weight of the Ribeye 650S an issue?

Looking around at a few 6.5's and the ribeye 650S looks good value for the fitout and equipment.

Having looked at a few manufactures sites etc they seem to vary the description from boat weight, hull weight etc etc, hence hard to compare exactly

The Ribeye site notes the 650S at 1250 to 1300 kg for full boat, engine and rigging

Is this a very heavy boat? or are Ribeye just being upfront with the info and not talking about bare hull weights that make no sense when your actually looking for the complete boat weight incl rigging etc

If they are a heavy boat, then is the 150 yamaha working very hard to keep it going, hence a little underpowered, hence eating fuel!!!

Very interested in the 650S, so any general feedback would be great

The 650s works very well with the 150 outboard. The 150 still best for boat but they do have a lightweight 200 now which can be fitted.

Weight and balance of boat and engine is a good package. Fuel figures were always good on our 2005 boat which we used for charter . Locally loads used and several used a training boats. 150 engine was not overworked on boat and know a few with 1000hrs still being used
