These little 4 strokes are around 175 pounds with power trim and are definitely heavier than the old 2 strokes. We are seeing good performance with the 30HP - speeds in the low 30's with a 12p aluminum prop (around 10% slip). Still experimenting with taller cleaver props - there is more speed to be had, as these motors will wind up to around 6K rpm.Are the new four strokes to heavy for these little boats?
The Honda 50 short shaft with the Blast ( Boosted Low Speed Torque) feature weigh 214 lbs without the power trim.
$5500So how much for just a bare hull with a rub rail?
Boatdoc55 was right on - these weigh about 200 lbs. Performance on this hull has been exceptional.
There are no dumb questions. While there's plenty of room for a motor and pump, this hull has no center pod. Probably not the best design for a single jet. Twin pumps? Not sure about that....
Thank you Sir. Nice motors, perform well, and are expensive. 3 Star EPA motors too!The 40HP and 50HP models are two stroke TLDI engines and weigh 208 pounds.
$15.5K - this includes 3 color graphics, color matched Competitive Trailer, gauge package, billet package, etc., etc. Price can go up, or down, depending on what a customer is looking for.Pricing for turn key with 30 hp? Trailer too.
Boat looks great!
Well said:thumbsupThis is really cool.
Just another opinion, but I think offering the smaller boats including the 18 stuff with basic power (yes, even jets) is gonna get new people onto the water for the first time. I also think that very few people ever buy jsut one small boat...they move on to bigger ones.
Anyway, very cool stuff.
