Default 2019 Yamaha 75 vs Mercury 75

Looking at a new boat and have been a Yamaha guy but Lundís like Mercury motors so was wondering how they would compare?

Being a Yamaha guy you know what you would be buying. Yamaha always has a 5 or 6 year warranty in the spring.

Both motors are similar, the Merc is 6lbs heavier, 2-1L for the Merc vs 1.8L for the Yamaha, 2.07 gear ratio for the Merc vs 2.15 for the Yamaha. The Merc tops out at 5500 rpm vs 6000 rpm for the Yamaha. I have a 75 Merc on my Tracker and I am happy with it. Push's the boat with a 15P prop, full fuel, 2 people and gear, 34 mph GPS indicated, snaps out of the hole nicely. Either motor would most likely do you well.
