I talk to several of the guys regularly. I can ask. What are you looking for ?

400s/450s? Budget? Location? etc

Primarily insurance as a first time cat owner and the fact that a lot of 400 boat owners are trading up to 450ís and more used 400 boats available.

Thank you for sharing. That is interesting insurance-wise. Even with 450's, combined is 900HP. For many cats, that's the horse of one motor, when talking inboard/outboard. When I think about the Merc 450s, I think about the 496 HO power plant @ 425HP. Not really craziness in the cat world.

I've owned two Nortech 36 cats. The second with a pair of 1075 turned up to 1350. A stark comparison horsepower-wise. I think for that boat I was around 3500 dollars a year with a 6 month layup. Seems 100 horse when you're talking a pair of 400s vs 450s wouldn't make much difference. Have you shopped insurance? What is the difference in price between the two power plants? These are awesome boats! Good luck with your search.

Most insurance companies look @ speed, not HP

Over/Under 120 seems to be the mark.

Value of a 450 boat vs 400 boat will make a little bit of INS cost difference too.
