I find Zodiac's being overpowered compared to same size other brands models. A 25 HP engine will perform satisfactorily if not going for max stated passenger or carrying load capacity. Use to run a 380 sib with a 2 strokes Tohatsu 18 HP,which performed very well with up to 3 total mates.

Happy Boating
