2018 / G1 225 hp

I purchased new, the last model of the 2018 225 ETEC G1 in May. (Now above 150 they are G2's)

Installed on a 228 Seafarer Grady White.

This is one strong motor !  I have about 85 hours and she runs like a top.

My dealer, who is top notch, proped her so she can run 35mph @ 41% throtle and WOT 46mph with a full tank of fuel and gear.  Average 2.8 mpg at this speed.

 

 

 

What more could you ask for ?

Conratulations !

 

What is the top rpm when trimmed out for best speed  with an average load onboard?

What style propeller and pitch size?

Outboards should be propped for full throttle rpm and different style props chosen for the type of boating an owner does.

I am away for a week but I will post that information when I return.

I believe it is a Rebel prop.  If memory serves the RPM tops out at 5600. But I will check that.

If the motor reaches 5600 rpm at full throttle trimmed out for best speed with your Rebel prop, it is set up well.

My local dealer has be dealing with myself and my father for a total of 90+ years between us.

The owners have changed over the years but with a techican moving up and keeping it going with the same great service to people. Best in NE North Carolina !
