I chose Yamaha because I believe itís the best quality motor made. I think Etecs and Mercs are better performing motors but I chose reliability over speed. I have no data to back that up other than what several dealers told me... but when you go to the coasts and to the places where people make a living with their boats, the majority are running Yamaha.

Rather than being totally brand specific, look at different models from manufacturers. For example the Yamaha F70 weighs 100 lbs less than other companies 75 hp engines, and Yamaha is the only company to manufacture a 70 hp engine. That model really shines if your in that hp category. I’m looking at a sailboat, in that case the Honda 2.3 hp really shines, it’s much lighter than the comparable engines. I’ve always had mercury until I bought my boat and put a Yamaha F70 on it. I think every company builds a good engine. Dealership matters too. I have a Yamaha and Suzuki dealer on my lake.
