Cheeers, Toffen
Did the Phantom have Arnesons or Bravos?

A Yanmar 440 and a Yanmar 500 are totally different engines. A 6LY2A-STP 440hp. is a 5.8 liter straight-6 block which is around 1200 lb. whereas the 6CXM-GTE2 is a 7.4 liter straight-6 which is over 1800 lb. and is some 10 inches longer than the 6LY2. In other words, a 500hp. will not fit and even if it did, the combined weight of motors and ASD8s or #6s would most probably sink a Gladiator... Maybe 440s which will soon become 480s when they go electronic...

Very Impressive engine room!

Super Termoli :

You are right , but the 440 (6LY2A-STP) will be available at 500hp and will be on display at the Miami Boat Show.

The new Yanmar "480" as they are calling it is suppose to be the same engine with different head and electronics.

The ASD8 is only #285 lbs. The Bravo on a box is heavier.

Hi!

I was thinking of the new upgraded 500 as it just as heavy as the standard 6LY2A-STP. Will Smith used after marked lower unit, not Merc.

In my opinion it will be a hit. I know of a guy in Norway that runs 4 x 500 (new version) in his Northech 50 Cat. Great milage.

Cheeeers, TG

del sol as of a couple of weeks ago the boat was still available. There was a interested party, but I'm told that they walked when the boat couldn't be tested due to a broken prop shaft. The shaft has been fixed, but the prop hasn't been replaced yet. The drives were Buzzi's. The boat is located at Dollar Offshore. I don't know the price.

Those are France Helice drives and propellers on the Sonic.
