Historically I have been an inboard jet man with several yamaha kickers all great. For one season I owned a 2520 Parker with a 300hp Suzuki I really loved it. Someone from southern Cal wanted that boat more than me, I sold it. I ordered a new build and specified a 300 dual prop Suzuki. Covid delayed the build but the builder took in a very low hour (less than 100 hr) boat with a 300 Merc Verado/ I ran that last season without any problems. I am old but I have to see the water discharge to know it is running. Fuel consumption is awesome (remember most of my history is with large block inboard jets) I would by it again.
