  • 282 Power

    I have a buddy with a 2000 282 that he is redoing. He is at the point of buying motors and has the option to get his hands on a pair of Suzuki 200 4 strokes with very low hours on them. Does anybody on here know or have any first hand experience on whether those 200's will be enough for the 282. He's not looking to make it a speed demon, he just wants to be able to run with ease when fully loaded down. There is a 282 for sale here in jax that has twin 200 zukes and the guy swears he's getting 52-54 mph loaded full of fuel. Is that realistic or is the guy blowing smoke?I was thinking it could be realistic with the right prop

    I have a Mako 282 but I am of no help. I couldnt tell you. It originally called for twin 225 2 strokes and the guy I got mine from had twin 250 2 strokes and he said he got 50 MPH. Whatever the case, please post on here the outcome as I would like to know as well. Thanks and tell your buddy good luck.

      I had a 261 (same as 282 w/o euro transom) it ran 49.999 with df175's light and Suzuki 21.5" props

      Df200's should get you a few more mph.
