Test drove a 220 ocean pro and a 26' alaskan.
The 220 ocean pro was a sweet machine with a 150 hp honda. Top end about 38 mph and very stable. If I buy this I think I would still upgrade to a 200 hp. Honda. But over all a little small than what I am used too.
Now for you guys that have the 26' Alaskan with twin 115 hp.
yamahas. I wasn't to impressed with the performace of these twins. Lots of vibration and noise, Could not get above 28 mph.
Burning 9.5 gph. Is this common for the yamahas on this boat. I felt that it needed a counter rotating motor and a prop change.
Motors had 19 pitch props. I think maybe 17 pitch would be better. And we only had about 15 gallons of fuel onboard with 3 of us. I really feel these motors should have performed much better. Maybe just a bad installation job on the outboards.
I was ready to buy the 26' untill the test drive.
All the help you can give will be most appreciated. need to make the dicission on the 220 ocean pro or the 26' alaskan.
Thanks again for your help
