You will hear many Outboard experts call these motors one of the most reliable ever made. Another thing we've been learning about outboard powered larger boats, like in the 27 to 30 foot range, is that more horsepower is generally better than less. Compared to all the other engines, we were generally impressed at the superior performance of Yamaha engines. Complete step-by-step instructions, diagram's, illustration's, wiring schematics, and specifications to completely repair your vehicle with ease! They're quiet quieter than the Opti's and 4-strokes and smooth, with great power. I have deleted this article. The piston displacement is 158.
Please start a new thread instead of reviving ones that have been dormant for ten years. We'd add these were Florida boats used in sea water 12 months per year. Best of all, we have all of our genuine Yamaha parts at huge discounts and offer free shipping on qualified orders. Now that is old hat. I think Yamaha made a mistake on these 225's.
You get everything you will ever need on one easy-to-use cd-manual. Six independent throttle intakes optimize air and fuel delivery for heart-in-your-throat acceleration and top-end speed. Another thing we look for is salt weeping from the cooling system and cylinder head gaskets. We have set the price exceptionally low to ensure a quick sale. We pulled compression readings and found all cylinders to have great, even readings.
Only 50 more horsepower of the 225's, which is only a 12. The engine is sold as is and you are encouraged to have the engine surveyed anytime prior to purchase. You can email, call or click on the Live Chat button at the top of the screen. Two sets of these were on Grady-White 272 Sailfish, and another on a Pursuit 2855. That's plenty fast for a boat of this size.
Many outboard motor experts regard this engine as being the most reliable outboard motor ever made. The list of performance features goes on and on. With the throttles pushed forward, the twin outboards top out at 5300 rpm and produce a speed of 41. We have used equipment available at big discounts. Yet, oddly enough, despite two very badly rusted sets of motors on one boat, the darn things still worked.
I have had one for over two years and it has been absolutely flawless. I believe it was on a Cobia boat. And, of course, we all know that this isn't true. During the last several months we had the opportunity to sea trial four boats with Yamaha outboard motors in the 200 to 250 hp range. Pros and cons of that engine? The entire boat has low hours and has never been fished. Our website is the best out there, all of our vessels are seen in every country in their language.
It features an inward-opening transom gate to port, plus a 44-gallon live well in the center. After all, outboards have a well-deserved reputation for being gas guzzlers, which is one drawback they can't overcome by virtue of the fact that outboards burn a combination of gasoline and oil. Indeed, when operating some of the competition's controls, we have to wonder how boat owners can tolerate such shoddy products. The boat's batteries are located under the front of the leaning post, and the helmsman sits atop a very cool power-adjustable bench seat. It just snaps into place and the lower gasket makes a good seal with the lower cowl, no muss, no fuss, no sweat. He has always helped me out! There's also a Corian cutting board and a fresh water sink, and our test boat featured Pursuit's optional refrigerated bait drawers beneath the cutting board.
Far and away, for us the biggest attention getter was the optional Yamaha instrument package which is just the neatest and most reliable set of outboard instruments we've run across. This manual very useful in the treatment and repair. If you read the advertising, every manufacturer touts the latest and greatest high tech engineering that results in the greatest power, longest life, highest reliability and, of course, their engines hardly burn any fuel at all. So, whether you need the mother of all tune ups or a replacement propeller after that last adventurous outing, we have you covered. Add to this the fact that outboard propellers are not as efficient as inboard props and you have two good reasons why outboards burn more fuel.
