Parker 900 Baltic with TWIN Verado 300's

Change of plan:-

After a lot of negotiation I have changed the spec of my new Parker 900 Baltic. She is not going to be a Safari set up as initially planned but a leisure setup. My new rib will also be my Demo rib for Parker, so I have decided to go for twin 300hp Verado's instead of the 225hp Optis.

Layout wise I have gone for the Dog Consul, which is much larger than my previous consul, rear bench seat in front of the engine well at the rear, then with either twin jockeys behind the Consul or possibly twin Bolster Seats.

Colour wise I have decided to go all Yellow & Black again as per my previous Parker Baltic.

Delivery date is going to be late Jan/Feb. Can't wait now.

RIBase
Is this sudden upping in power anything to do with doing silly speeds on the cat?

Sounds like a hell of a boat!

Yep has to be a Mercury on the back!

Sounds like a top bit of kit, my vote is for blusters not jockey seats!

Have you ever owned Verado? We have two 275hp with 300 hours. Big disaster. Everything break. Used 18000 pound to repair them last 6 months.
Go for Japaneese quality. We have broken all engines that are on the market and do know..
