Countered (slightly) by the fact that the bravo 2 can swing a larger prop. I'd rather have better reliabilty than fancy props.

i get the feeling this is too personal and too much of a one off case for the company in question to discuss the matter openly. I think they should just settle it between themselves.

Sounds like you're getting a redbay. Are you going for a fully enclosed boat or for a console/canopy? Power wise i recommend copying an 11m called Dorus Mor, which has twin 350 Yanmars and hamilton...

Not exactly. All i know is that a KAD300 will cost the same as the Yamaha 240. The yanmar with bravo 2 will cost 1500 more, and the D6 will cost 500 more than that. I did once find the yanmar is...

Two good points but what effect will the vastly superior torque have? I've also got to consider that the D6 is quieter, more frugal and way more refined than the KAD300. I think based on this the D6...

Hate to drag this back up, but i'm going to anyway :) . Redbay say the Volvo D6 might fit afterall, but at 750kg (about 200 more than the KAD300) is it worth it. It chucks out 300 Horsepower at the...

That's significantly less torque than the Yanmar. It manages 740Nm at only 2600 rpm and has above 700Nm between 2200 and 3200rpm. That's hard to argue against.

That has definetly got me leaning...

All that thread does is explain why the KAD would be the better choice. All i need is a simple yes or no, will the bravo x drive be able to handle a 370 or 440HP Yanmar?
