Default 37vh Freeman with Yamaha 425

Anyone heard of anyone trying to put twin Yamaha 425s on their Freeman 37vh? I would be interested to read the performance bulletin on that.

The additional weight of the 425 motor will reduce gains to almost nothing. Look at the performance reports for other vessels in 350-425 comparisons and you see minimal gains. Same will apply.

Yeah, that is what I was worried about. Seems like they are adding quite a bit of weight for the extra HP. I looked at the bulletin on that 33 grady white canyon and was concerned with what I saw.

I don't think 189 lbs of extra weight per engine is going to erase 75 additional horsepower. Of course, the torque numbers are the real benefit for heavy boats.

Hit the :26 mark, that's where it really starts.

Strange reply. Have you had issues with yours, or are you just a keyboard cowboy basher?

little do you know, the 425 is light years ahead of any competition in terms of cooling and exhaust

Funny . Yam isn't stupid and this engine was made for a reason I just don't think we're seeing it yet - at least in what it is capable of perf/reli wise . Maybe they'll unlock a bunch more HP , I don't know - It could also be a big flop but I'm sure there's a lot about this engine , good and bad , that remains to be seen . All those fuel pumps makes one wonder .

according tothat video boat manufacturers will soon be building 60' CC's so they can hang 6 of these bad actors off the back. the engine drives boat design.

. . . . . and there is no reason to think that will not happen. Who would have thought 3/4 years ago that they would build a 42?

I have a lot of hours on a lot of engines, doesn't take a lot of brain power to run HP to weight ratio + Features + Cost + Performance Reports to make a judgment.

Show me something that makes this a good product.

Weíre talking twins on the 37, right? That seems like it could be a pretty good combo. Youíll just have to be ok with only going 60 instead of 70.
