Default Evinrude G2 3-cylinder (115/140/150HP)...anyone running one?

Looking hard at the 115H.O., like many of the features, but don’t know anyone running one yet. A lot of the features from the larger G2’s have made it to these midrange engines, and have heard positive things about those, just looking for any feedback on anyone running these new engines in 115, 140 or 150HP, thanks in advance.

Thats what I am looking at them for, catamaran. If perform as advertised and are reliable, they are great option.

Can't tell you about those specific models, but I own twin G2 300's since 2017 and I absolutely love them. Much better on fuel, torque and maintenance than the Yamaha F225's I had before. These are my third Evinrude twins and I've had nothing but positive things to say about the motors.

Yes we are

The 140 is particularly interesting to me, reasonable weight and plenty of displacement to easily get that power out of a 2 stroke, i.e. this is not a "badged up" motor making 126 HP.

is the 140 and 150 actually different? on the site there is 7lbs difference and the 140 is D.I. but every etec motor is a direct injected 2 stroke

On the surface it would appear that the 140 is the base motor, the 115 derated/detuned and I believe the 150 has a power valve (ala snowmobile/dirt bike) in the exhaust to get the little bump such that it can carry the higher rating.

At 1.9L displacement I wouldn't expect the 150 to have the midrange punch of bigger bullets but I don't think Evinrude is chasing this rabbit, fuel economy should be stellar on all 3.

The 150 has evinrudes RAVE valves. From what I can gather, it's a valve that can change the size of the exhaust ports depending on rpm. Smaller at lower rpm for more velocity and larger at higher rpms for more flow.

With the new Evinrude Boat Show sales promotion of 7 year factory coverage and rebates until March 31, dealers should be offering great pricing on new motors this time of year. If a dealer didn't get back to you with a quote, visit local boat shows and find a different dealer.

This should help set expectations on midrange punch for the 3-cylinder 150 G2 -- about the same punch as the Yamaha F150.

Hartford and NY boat shows have come and gone.but the New England Boston boat show starts Saturday and runs through the 16th. There will be Evinrude dealers there to quote prices on the spot for you. It would be worth your while to attend it if you can.
