Evinrude E-TEC 250 H.O.
The 2013 Evinrude E-TEC 250 H.O. got its H.O. designation for being “high output.” We thought that may have been just talk, but our tests show differently. We ran it on the back of three different pontoon boats ranging in weight from 3,566 lbs (1,618 kg) to 5,548 lbs (2,517 kg) and they all performed within 2.3 mph and ¼ gph of each other at WOT with varying loads. It looks like the “H.O.” really means what it says. Possibly more important, is the fact that the Evinrude E-TEC 250 H.O. engine has some upgraded components from the standard 250.
