Default Nautic Star 1910 or 2140

I was about to purchase a Nautic Star 1910 with a Yamaha 115, when someone told me the 2140 was the same price. After getting quotes on both - at least from the local dealers, they were correct. There's very little difference as long as the outboard is the same. I'm concerned that the 115 isn't enough power for the 21 ft boat. The difference in weight is only 200 lbs, and the max hp for both is 150. Have any of you had any experience with a 115 on the 2140, or its predecessor, the 2110?

I would think on a bay boat you'd be fine. Just a little slower to plane and a little lower top end. Is there performance data sheets made for these boat. Look those up and you should be able to get your questions answered. You could find them on Yamaha website.

Get the 150, you'll be glad you did. Especially once the boat is under a load.

I agree because if your financing it likely wouldn't make a big difference in your payment. Plus it'll sell easier when it's that time as well.

So the 115 isn't enough for the 19 or the 21? My current boat is a 17' carolina skiff with a 50. I've never had a bay boat, but a 115 seems huge to me.

I'd go 150 on either one and if the 21 is the same price it would be ridiculous to buy the 19.

The 115 would push it fine but you'll enjoy the horsepower and the ease of resale with the 150. The performance data sheets from Yamaha don't show a lot of difference but it's ultimately your decision. I'd definitely get the 21 over 19 if the price is the same.

Thanks guys. A 150 seems to be the consensus, both here and to others that I asked. Not what I wanted to hear, but you guys know way more about bay boats than I do. I think I'll take your advise.
