I recomend that you must forget the 4.5 m and focus on the larger size. You see I used a boat like the one you want to buy (GOMORIZZO 4,5 & YAMAH 50), but when the 2 kids (twins) were added to the family's population it was impossible to make long journeys or vacation with that boat. Now we have one Bat 9 Falcon X (5,50 m) and things are more comfortable by far.

Thanks for advice. I'm now coming round to 5m plus for boat. What about engine size for this size and would it be worth waiting for a 4 stroke instead of 2 stroke?

Engine's size

If the boat is 5 m plus (about 480 - 530 kg net) you must consider for 100 Hp plus engine, WITHOUT ignoring the manufacturer's recomendetions. As far as the 2 or 4 stroke, it depends on your wallet. 2 strokes are cheeper but drink to much. On the contrary 4 strokes cost much more and drink much less fuel. I think about 25 - 30% less. 2 strokes are much easier to maintain and have punch in acceleration, but 4 strokes are quieter, cleaner, and "enviromental friendly". If you are going to participate in races, having a 4 stroke you propably see the sterns (or the smokes) of the 2 stroke powered. All the above are facts. The decision is yours.

I used to have a 2 stroke engine. My new RIB has 4 stroke engine. Go for a 4 stroke every time. Its quite, economical and reliable, unlike 2 strokes. I have a Yamaha 100.
