I know we all have our opinions and I respect that. I am 50. Owned a boat for probably 30 of my 50 years. Last 15 years, Yam 4 strokes. No complaints what so ever. My next boat, which will be a bay boat, WILL have a G2 on it. If not, don't care if its free, I won't buy it. A couple of years ago, I bought a 17 Cape Horn Offshore model. It is a 2005 and has a Yam 115 2 stroke on it. Forgot how much I loved the torque....For inshore, shallow water, it is a huge plus...But, to each his own...

Interestingly, the guys on the boat were just....fishing, like everyone else. They were not messing with the engine, pouring oil, or steering with ropes. The engine (a 300) was not smoking like chimney, and it did not sound like a chainsaw.....
Please don't tell me they were trying to pull start that monster
I'm lost..please enlighten me as I want to know what to do or not to do with mine if Sea Tow is unavailable.

The weight difference is minimal, which makes it difficult to go with the 2.7, unless it was offering significant value. I am a huge fan of the clean rigging tube, integrated steering and the efficiency. I really like the cowlings too.
Was just quoted with Hydraulic Helm and 4.3 Display. G2 200 Installed $23K And G2 200HO $23.3K. I guess the G2 200HO is a no brainer for $300 more but still $23K? G2 150HO is $20K

Good grief they are out of their mind on their prices. My HO 150 was under 15 grand installed. That's with 10 year warranty. Pretty sure the HO 200 was around 18 grand.

5 grand more in the NE? No wonder they aren't selling any. That's more expensive than a Yamaha of the same HP

Isn't the HO 200 power steering?

The 200 to HO 200 was 2 grand difference here in LA.

My HO 150 has power steering. Its like driving a car its so smooth.

Cant believe its only 300 dollars difference between the two 200 motors.

Think that dealer doesn't know whats going on.

In a market where a Prudent shopper can score a new 150 Merc for <12K...the above numbers are outrageous

My current 150 Erude DI doesn’t have hydraulic steering so I need the helm for the G2 HO. I can cut the cost down by getting the plain G2 150 or 200 without the power steering but I think it would be nice to have.

Find a different dealer. That's robbery. That's higher than MSRP I believe.

My dealer in Abbeville LA was way cheaper than that.

This past January I started seriously shopping boats and dealers and found a huge cost difference within 300 miles of home. I knew the boat style and then the manufacturer so I set out to find the best deal and dealer with the best reputation. I found a dealer in Michigan that had a demo with 40 hours on it and all of the fishing electronics (plus some) I was going to put on anyway with the 150hp G2 HO. I purchased sight unseen because their reputation was well worth the 3 hour drive and then found out the best part, my warranty started the day I picked the boat up because the dealer picked up the rest of the hours thru Evinrude. On paper yes my engine had 40 hours on it but on my paperwork it shows as if it was never run and was brand new.
Buying a package deal is alot different than repowering as I have learned on here. I got my G2 for just shy of 15K after all the NEW electronics, big trailer upgrade, canvas extra's, seat upgrades and 12 gallons of oil, I did very well. I'm saying that shopping around pays off . IMO the price for the engine is plain stupid if you are just repowering but if you work with a dealer that is willing to go way overboard to make customer happy , the price isn't the only thing to look at.
I put personally put on 101 hours on the boat this summer so G2 has 141hrs on computer but I had a great boating summer with no complaints.
Only one big problem........they have this summers demo for sale, 3' bigger with the 250hp G2 HO on the boat they know I drool over, but can't afford to do it again this year but maybe next.
Sorry so long but I didn't get much sleep last night after putting my "Baby" to bed under the tarp last night for a long winters nap.

When my project's done there will be a G2 ( maybe a G3 by then ) hanging off the back. I called Evinrude to see if a 400 was in the works to debut in Miami show next year. She chuckled and said they are working on smaller hp g2's. As far as the 400 she wont know untill a news release.

Actually I believe that BRP has a device that hooks on to your existing helm and takes care of that.

I'm going to say that anything larger than the 300 will require a different powerhead. The 3.4l is their 200-300 while the 2.7 is their 150-200. It's all about the tuning. I wonder if they've reached the edge of what the 3.4 can do in its current config? I'm willing to bet that they see the 300-400 range as an actual market like Merc and Yamaha do.

Default G2

I did hear a rumor the 300 can be tuned to 350.

That pricing is high. This is straight off of our price list:

OUTBOARDS:
All outboard pricing includes 25” shaft motor, controls, gauges, control cables, wiring harnesses, key switch, stainless steel prop and rigging labor.

Evinrude 2 Stroke
E-Tec G2 150 ...$14,690
E-Tec G2 150 H.O. ...$16,690
E-Tec G2 175 ...$17,380
E-Tec G2 200 ...$18,470

That's the thing the dealers are out of their mind with their pricing.

G2 150 locally is $11-12 for the engine all day long.

Then you just figure out what you want, basic or all the bells and whistles.
