Eish Mark.

I'm so sorry that the new F100's are delayed.
I would have loved to have seen those engines on your new boat.
Enjoy your new boat and may it give you loads of pleasure

Eish indeed. But no wrong call between these two I reckon.

Been looking at the 90s through tait marine for my butt cat. Some decent pricing on them. Also waiting to hear about the yamaha 90\100 and what pricing etc will be. I like the idea of raising the transom and fitting xl. You won't be sorry with rhe Suzi though.

Also working through Tait, very happy with my experience with them thus far.

Limited qty's of the new Yamaha F100 expected to arrive in March, almost all already reserved. Looking at the discounted prices of the F70, F100 (current) and F115, you can expect to pay approx 15% more for the new F100 over the Suzuki 90's like for like. Those factors, together with unmatched specs like a 2.59 gear ratio to spin a 14" prop and especially a 16kg saving on the transom, made the Suzuki's the "right choice" for me.

In all honesty and I said this in my original post, I have always favoured Yamaha and I was therefore trying to make the F100 option work. But if you remove brand bias and exclude any local dealership relationships, the Suzuki 90's on paper are the right 4 stroke motor for the 620 Super / Butt cats. That's my opinion. Then you consider the $$$ saving and that everyone raves about the Zukes ... it makes Suzuki a very convincing option.

I will provide feedback in due course. I will be able to give a good comparison as I have a new generation F200 on another boat which I would imagine would operate similarly to the new F100.

Got 2 Zook 90hp lean burns on a 21ft Flamingo cabin boat. Only comparison / point of reference I have is the 150hp 2-stroke Mariner (old motor - about 600 hours) on an 18ft Citation; however except for the fact that the 150hp performs better on the Citation, fuel consumption, noise levels and most importantly (for SWAMBO) lack of fuel smell are better with the Zooks.
