All these high hours Hondas in here have me feeling pretty awesome about the 700hr BF225 I just bought. That thing should last me quite a long time from the sounds of it.

2017 Yamaha F150….. 200 hours. Annual 100 hour service even though I don’t put on 100 hours in a year and did the impeller service this year.

A friend who operates rental boats in AK repowered one of his boats with over 5,000 hours because he figured it was about time, not because of engine troubles. Engines that are used often and maintained regularly can run for a very, very long time.

2020 Suzuki 300 Hp duoprop (201) and a 2021 Suzuki 25 Hp 3 cylinder kicker (22). Just did my 3rd oil change on the main and a breakin service on the kicker. We have some legs now and have been testing them. I figure for the boat that does 100% salt and goes out every weekend 250 hours is a pretty typical number for a summer of fishing. This mainly because the engine runs all day on a TUNA! trip. And most other trips are at least an hour run each way.

I am curious about the 300 hour service on oil. That seems like a long time. And FWIW it also matters when in the year you change the oil and gearcase oil. I always end the season with a fresh oil change and gearcase oil change. This makes sure you don't have a leaking seal and water left in the gearcase over the winter.

07 Suzuki 150 on an 07 21’ north river 1609 hours runs awesome. At about 1000hr throttle position sensor failed, only problem I’ve had, 90% ocean hours. Not the fastest but easy on the fuel bill! Love it!!!

thats cause its really a yamaha!
I've owned both engines, the old 1.73L Mercury and the new 2.1L. The new one is way better. More torque, better mileage, lighter weight, maintenance-free valve train. Superb engine.

2004 yamaha hpdi 150 750 hours. When I bought the boat it said 750, and I bought the yamaha software for my computer to figure out an electrical problem. It showed me it actually only had 650 hours on it. Apparently the previous owner left the key on in the garage several times and the hour meter keeps counting on this motor.

Buddy of mine just bought a boat with twin HPDI’s. Being 2-strokes gave him pause, but his research indicated they are superb motors.

My 9.9 Yammie kicker was dead as a doornail once I got onto the water Friday, (turned out to be a rotted battery cable) so I put 5 hours on the main trolling for salmon. Normally I prefer to NOT put hours on the main like that.... reading this thread makes me wonder why I worry! :)

Tight lines and smooth runnin’ guys.

I have twin 200 hpdi Yamaha's with appx 400 hours each(2002). When I bought the boat they had 60 hours. No motor problems other than maintenance. Replaced one tilt relay and need to do the other. Repaired trim/tilt cylinders on one last year and did other one this year. Am OCD with my fuel & filters. Seem to be good on fuel and plenty of HP. Will run them till they quit. Seems the 250 hpdi's were a problem.
