Manos great news.
I also got Icom Euro with dsc its a good set.
In fact that has reminded me when I was looking at the 225 honda,s and was considering twins I got a price uk of 12k each,this was a couple of yrs ago aprox,I contacted Knysna Marine in Knysna in S.A who were honda dealers and there price at the time was 7k for each engine.?

It may be worth Seahound looking at this if he goes for twins?

Well I think SAfrica is an option if he goes to buy 2 motors. The engines are CE marked and they are fully guranteed for repars in Europe. Mine is any way.
However, as some European dealers (they have the franchise rather than the dealership) don't want to get involved with this type of engines free and they charge (is wrong!! I have contacted Yamaha Japan on this matter and a dealer (franchise) lost their licence from Yamaha because they were refusing to hounor Yamaha international guarantee) is always best to contact the dealer first and ask the obvious question
i.e. I have an engine such and such make, is bought from wherever, has an international guarantee and is CE marked will you cover me??
The answer should be YES!! but one never knows with all these the crooks around

You might be able to split the shipping charges.If the timeings right.?

As you say a quick word with a couple of U.K dealers on the international warrantie work would put ones mind at rest.

Dont expect them to be real enthusiastic about it but if its in the contract then thats there obligation.

See http://www.knysnamarine.co.za/

Fuel consumption

Whilst your all going on about fuel consumption, here are some sobbering thoughts for the UK fuel user playing around in their boats :

Every 50 quid you bung in your boat you are effectively being taxed 43 by the Government, the fuel cost you aprox 7 quid, other than that you are lining the coffers of the government

Good enough reason to run a 50 hp Johnson, I would love to get a bigger boat with more powerful engine but the above fact kinda grates with me

The reason I sold my bayliner with V6 4.3 litre gussler

Just because I am into boats why should my tax burden be higher ?

the word

FLEEST
comes to mind when prices in Europe are between Euro cents 0.70-080/ltr for unleaded and 0.78-0.85/ltr for super unleaded!!
i.e. someting like 0.35-0.40 UK pence per litr.

Something which I never could understand is why many things in the UK cost as much as 2ice more than what things cost everywhere else in Europe?

Is a mistery

MATEBOY your dead right,its the running costs that can ruin your fun,and need at least some consideration.

Manos I could see you were about to slip int that old favorite of yours,Its all a big rip off in europe, and you can buy from greece much cheaper,engines boats etc.

Well here is your chance to quote:

2 x yam 225hpdi whats your best deal that you can get either ex greece or landed u.k with warrantie. Lets see weather it is indeed cheaper and if so bye how much?

Go for it Manos.

Yamaha 4 stroke

ex GREECE
These are catalogue Prices. You can get 20% discount on those

4-strokes
F225AETX (L)............. EURO 21,870
FL225AETX(L)............ EURO 22,600

HPDI MOTORS
Z200NETOL(L) ........... EURO 18,635
Z200NETOX(L) ........... EURO 18,928
LZ200NETOX(L) ......... EURO 19,955


ex SOUTH AFRICA I will revert tomorrow.

However, to put the record streight I NEVER SAID that goods in sold in Greece are cheap. I only think that goods sold outside Europe are cheap. Due to the EU thing all goods sold in Europe have similar prices.

Ok Manos can you let us know where /who we get the discount from? and what Model the motor is,if possible could it be in Pounds?so we can see what the savings are.

I will shop around here in the u.k and see what is possible.

If we stick to Yam 225 X long shaft hpdi then we all talking the same numbers.
