    Albernipowermarine.com

    $168k USD for a fully loaded 24 Osprey, 300 Merc V8 Verado and Pro 15 kicker!

    Otherwise Osprey FB has a few photos of twin Mec V6 200s. They also have pics of Boats rigged with Suzuki DF350 duoprop.

    But the Merc 300 Verado in white looks good on an Osprey!

    A white Merc just looks so wrong!

    Looks sweet. Osprey would be a consideration if I was looking. Alaska Mining and Diving had a 24' SeaSport Explorer at the boat show here for about the same price. 300 Suzuki but no kicker that I saw. Either one would be a great boat.

    Waiting for Alberni to run that 24 with the V8 hopefully next week. Get some numbers.

    I have still not seen a 24 with the Suzuki DF350 on it

    Looking online I have not been able to see what the 24' Osprey is rated for. Osprey's website wasn't helpful. Did you reach out call/email them to find out if the 24' is rated for a 350hp outboard?

    I looked at Suzuki's website and looked at their performance reports for the DF350 and this Dusky was the closest thing to an Osprey (length, kinda style, and outboard bracket).

    I have the performance numbers for the DF350 on the Osprey 26 Fisherman
    According to pooderbuilt (who builds the bracket for Osprey, 24 can take the 350, i am yet to see one though)

    3 + mpg are good numbers... suspect that boat is 2000 pounds lighter than a Osprey, and they didnt give the deadrise of that hull, seems like Ospreys are 22-24 degrees....?

    I didn't say it was a close match. Suzuki only had a few performance reports and there wasn't anything close to any real AK/Westcoast style boats.

    Didnt mean to imply it was apples to apples, just pointing out as it could be misleading..........

    Copy the URL the info is on and post it. I can probably do it from there.
