Actually, they are OK with it and even list the Verado in their price list. I think they accept that some people want a bit more than the Honda 225 offers.

Magnum did the fact that the demo boat engine wasn't up to snuff influence your decision?

Yes, or rather it did for the engine. The boat performed superbly.

I'm sure you've already stated this somewhere, but what area do you intend keeping it?

Had a good look at one of these last summer, but never got a spin in it.
Looking forward to hearing reports on her though!! They certainly are a rare beast.

Glad to see that you're probably going with a Verado. The honda in my opinion just wouldn't do the boat justice. With the Verado it really would be something special!! Best of luck anyway, report back soon and take plenty of pictures!!

I agree with all the comments about the boats looks which are fantastic and I am sure with the 275 the performance will be simply amazing, however the tank looks a little small at 200 litres? Is there an option for a bigger tank?

Agreed. Standard tank is 200 litres and I'm speaking to them at the moment about having something bigger. I think 275 is possible just waiting to hear from them.

Brochure says aluminium, at least that's what the standard one is made of.
