Redbay 6.5m/200hp Yamaha

Hi Everyone, I'm looking at buying a circa 2008 Redbay Stormforce which comes with a 200hp Yamaha V6

I was wondering if the size of engine might a little too much for a boat of this size? I have received video clips of the boat under way and she seems fine but thought I'd check with some experts on here.

Cheers

Sounds perfect to me. Mick has just re powered his 6.5 Stormforce with twin Honda 100ís. Lovely boat & would be on my very short list if I was looking for something in that size range.

Won’t be a problem they are rated up to 225 hp I think

Mine's a 6.5 Canopy Stormforce with a 200hp Suzuki on the back is very adequate!

A brilliant boat, only complaint is that it's a bit big if there's only one of you (but that may well be me!).
