Default New guy here with ???

Hey everyone new guy here from TN. I don't have a boat yet but am considering a SeaArk after the first of the year. It is a 2072 vfx center console. The specs are 1250 lbs, 20' long, 94" beam, 28 gallon fuel tank and a 15* deadrise. It is aluminum.

I haven't decided on a motor yet. It's rated for up to 175hp but at 1250 lbs I don't think it'll need max power. Plus, money is a factor.

I'm currently considering a Suzuki DF140A, Mercury 150 four stroke or Evinrude Etec 135 HO in no certain order.

I realize this is an Evinrude forum and you might be a little biased but I would like your opinions on which motor would be best suited for this boat. I'd like a WOT speed in the mid-40s with good holeshot and good cruise efficiency.

Is the Etec as fuel efficient as the four strokes and what about oil usage? I know the 2 stroke oil can be kind of expensive.

Might search for boat test or performance bulletins on SeaArk, Suzuki's, Mercury's, Evinrude's and even Yamaha's web siteson that model boat and different motors. Boat test bulletins will show you fuel consumption and performance data. The SeaArk dealer should be able to help you find that information.
