Ribeye 550 engine

Hi all.. Iím in the process of buying a ribeye 550 that currently has a Yamaha 90hr 2 stroke, itís in fantastic condition and has only covered 122 hrs.
I would like to change it to a four stroke as we plan to use the boat both on rivers and open water.
Can anyone advise me on what shaft length is needed please?

Surely the same length as the 90HP you already have on it 🤷*♂️

I just did a quick Google for its spec sheet and it says long shaft. You could measure the existing motor, or the transom to confirm though.
