Triple 525's or twin staggered? Opinions inside.

i'd say twin 700's and i dont even have a boat. you could put a cot in the engine bay with twins there is so much room. the link from fglightning would sell me right there. if money is no object put twin 1050's in there....

I went through the same situation on my Nor-Tech.. Been in 2 Nor-techs with 525's/bravo's.. ran 92.. I opted for a semi stagged 700, nxt transom assembly and 6's.. runs the same. You do not want a bravo boat, especially one of that size....The speeds will be very close with that Fountain, (1 mph less) Ive run both Fountains like you are talking about. The twins are the way to go, the 700's have a better drive, better COG, easier to work on, maintenance is less, and that blower looks pretty damn good too. They only positive is what Cat said, as well as when getting up on plane it's quicker.. Good luck Jeff

Twin 700s, NXTs, very easy to up the hp on those drives too if you want in the future.

So its safe to say that a twin with a down motor is not going to get on plain. How fast can it run with one motor? Like I said I dont want to be stranded out in the middle of lake michigan.

The 47 foot at Shogrens is very nice, but its new, and I looking to spend no more than $250,000.


Thanks for the responses

I seen a couple of trips that wouldn't plane with one motor down, one of them finally got up after the prop was removed.

Removing a prop in the water anywhere except a beach is not easy.

ya..it's safe to say you will not get up on one 700. Nor would you want to put the stress on her...

If I went with the 525's, I would want to modify once their was a need too. So from the sound of it, putting whipple chargers on the motors would highly stress the bravo drives, even more.

How about a tripple 700 boat, with #6's. I have seen a few for sale, here or there. Anyone have any experience with this set-up. Fountain said that they had problems with this set-up, but, I believe they just built a triple 700 set-up, that Shogren just sold.
