HI! I am new to this wbesite, and am therefore asking for your kind contribution and valued opinion
I am about to buy a BWA eightfifty RIB (8.5m). I am going for a twin engine option and the maximum recommended HP is 450hp so I am looking for 2 225hp engines.
The RIB will be used for family day trips, waterskiing/wakeboarding and fast runs in the Meditteranean, so I would like torque and speed but I obviously value reliability! and fuel efficiency!
What is in your opinion would be the best engine on an 8.5m RIB of the following:
2 X HONDA BF 225 VTEC (are these old 2006 models or have they been updated?)
2 X SUZUKI DF 225 (the BWA agent is pushing for a package deal)
2 X YAMAHA V6 225 (seem quite popular)
2 X MERCURY VERADO 225 (are they more reliable and more fuel efficient?) or Optimax?
Thanks for your help. Am quite stuck!
