Default WTB Used Twin Yamaha F150s

Looking for a counter rotating pair of F150s. Donít necessarily need props,controls or gauges. Would prefer 2012 or newer, 25Ē shaft. Not looking for new motors at this time.

Up to around 500 hours and good condition is a must. Iím in St. Pete but will travel Florida for the right pair. Not looking for a tired pair with faded cowlings and lots of hours.

Not interested in anything else unless perhaps Merc four stroke 150s due to weight concerns. Suzukis are too heavy and I donít want Etecs.

The boat is already rigged for Yamaha and is weight sensitive.

Just a heads-up — Suzuki DF150/175s are almost identical in weight to Yamaha F150s.

Iíve done plenty of homework and respectfully disagree. Suzuki is 35lbs heavier per motor. 70lbs total doesnít seem like a lot, but I donít want to compromise the ride of an already bow-light boat.

This potentially true for the 2018 and later DF150/175 or electronically shifted models, but since you're looking for something used, model years prior had a listed dry weight within a few lbs of Yamaha F150s (and were typically negligibly lighter).
