Default Suzuki vs. Yamaha outboards

I am looking for a 31 Cape Horn. I've owned several boats with Yamaha engines and came across a 31 with Suzuki motors. Can anyone please tell me which engines you would chose and why? Thanks in advance. Oh yeah, my 24 is up for sale if anyone's interested.

We run twin 225 Suzukiís. We have fished a lot of boats with friends that run Yamahaís and canít say there is much difference. Only difference is I noticed the Suzuki is a little quieter.

Both are good, a bit less dealers with the Suzuki. I've got 2 10 year old Suzys on my boat, bullet proof.
Run them hard and service every 100 hours.

I've owned both and would not hesitate to buy a boat with either motor. I've heard that it is easier to get parts for the yammy.
