What do you expect as far as performance with the triple diesels? How are priced compared to NA Nortech 650"s?

I went with the twin Yanmars, the 500hp/935tq, and straight ASD8's vs the triple set up and bravo or alike drives. There isnt a trip package at the moment that will give me more speed and be as reliable. We modifed a few things on my boat like lighter layup, drive height, 6" exhaust vs 5", different rake on props, to get it to hopefully 80. The fuel burn is incredible, and most of the time we cruise at 50-60mph anyways. Jeff

As to the trip 650's I believe the boat went 102 with twin 750's and 5's (not bravo's) I hit 82 with Trond, Terry, and myself with a 1/4 or 1/3 tank of fuel, that will give you some idea. As to price call Terry at Nortech, he will set you up. 239-567-5030

Terry explained that to me something on set up or rigging, not quite sure.

His I believe was the boat I test rode, a blue and silver tribal flamed 4300. Nice looking boat. The other was Red's 5000 with the trip. set up. Beautiful but to big for me. The 4300 is the perfect size for our boating and friends. Thanks Jeff

What a turnkey setup!
What speeds are you getting. Sounds like a "Island Hopper"
to me
