Comparison Test

Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 H.O. vs. Yamaha F200

Yamaha 200 vs. Evinrude E-TEC 150 H.O.
Sportsman/Boatbuilder Dave East conducts a head-to-head test between the Yamaha F200 and an Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 H.O.

A video has been making the rounds on the Internet for the last six months that has created quite a buzz in chat rooms and along the docks. It pits a Yamaha F200 against an Evinrude E-TEC G2 150 H.O. propelling a 25’ (7.62 m) center console. The results are eye-opening. We’ll give the punchline away: the underdog won. But was the test fair? BoatTEST has investigated and found Dave East’s outboard engine shootout to be completely and unarguably honest. The test aptly demonstrates the significant advantage of Evinrude’s E-TEC G2 150 H.O. 2-stroke engine at low and mid RPM ranges vs. a 4-stroke outboard. Can the 4-stroke Yamaha even get the 25-footer on plane? See the video and judge for yourself...
