my 330 was factory powered with yamahas, and repowered with yamahas.

I see lots of boats with various outboards, and just like cars, everyone has their particular reason for one or the other brand-you'll get the "dictionary" on their "why's" for selection.

that being said, post up a pic of before/after and catch 'em up.

Also you need to look at the availability & quality of the shops that service these different engines. Do your complete homework.

How long do you plan on keeping the boat? If just a short term than perhaps the resale of the yammy will be better. However, will the resale of the yammy offset the initial purchase price?

I have 12 year old Suzukis that I've put 1600hrs on in two years and have nothing bad to say about them. Like has been said, modern outboards are all pretty good these days.

If you ever plan on adding a tower and don't want to spend more money for the electronic Yamahas go electronic Zuke. Otherwise flip a coin, you can't lose.

Thanks for everyone's thoughts.

I don't know if this boat will be long term, or not ... I had a pre-emptive case of "two foot itis," but managed to avoid doubling the cost - so, dodged that bullet for now. I did really want twins, though.

I'll see how it works out for family use and then decide what to do ... I think it will be fine as only time I would wander offshore would be on really good days.

Pay more and get and get a better seat.. GO WITH TWINS. To many boaters wished they had twins later in boating life.
