Verado 350 vs Yamaha F300 vs Etec G2 300 (twins)
I hope this doesn't open a can of worms like it does on some forums...
We have the new build Parker 1000 coming soon - unrigged. We will purchase and install the engines locally for warranty and dealer reasons.
We wanted Verados, but the dealer is saying we have to purchase all the accessories with it (props, gauges, steering, harnesses, totaling approximately $6k) and if we repower we have to do the same thing. Just repowered our 9m and now have extra useless gauges and accessories. As we are planning to replace the engines every two years (maximum) this means we would end up with many thousands of dollars worth of unwanted accessories in the long run.
To that end, we are now considering the Yamaha F300 and the Etec G2.
The nice thing about the G2 is they are giving a 3-year 1000hr commercial warranty, vs the Verado and Yamaha 1-year warranty.
All pricing and dealer reliability being the same, any thoughts on which way to go?
