Just found these 2 whilst browsing, they do sound fantastic and the acceleration is unbelievable.

Verado is very good but how much gasoline does it need? 100 litres per hour?
I have some doubt my leaving fuel station.:)

Yep they do fantastic and I can assure the acceleration is just as breathtaking. Fuel economy is only 100 litres per hour at WOT, cruising at 36 knots they are burning 1litre per mile per engine so personally don't feel that is much more than the average, drop your speed to 30 knots and I get 1.2m per litre so very respectable.

I have a little question. Why do you apply powerful engines if you are to cruise only at 30 knots? I used to employ engines for full power. And I believe if I multiply by two engine's power, my boat speed doesn't multiply by two.

Because cruising at 30/36 knots the engines are not anywhere near strained, fuel economy is good, plus you also have the huge grin factor of blasting off to 54/55 knots, fully laidened with passengers & fuel if you wish without any effort. Also I am never short of enough power, if caught out in rough weather.

The Baltic I have with the 2 x 275 Verado's feels very solid, and planted in the water, we had 54 knots on the trip back from Cowes, 8 adults, 3/4 tank of fuel and not once did the rib feel unbalanced, no wobble at all, and that was without adjusting the trim to get more speed.

It's said that Evinrude have less petrol consumption than Verado due to E-Tec techology. Why did you choose the Verado?

I was with a mate on his rib recently and where I was returning 1.3miles per litre at 12 knots he was returning 1.6 litres per mile on a 200 Etec. I chose Verado's because of the Speed, Look very sexy indeed, quiet and because that is what I wanted.

I have to get a bigger RIB. I think twin 275 would putt my transum several feet under.
