Mercury Verado's Built Tuff, Compact, Small, Light Weight, SUPER POWERFULL AND SUPER QUIET!
Reel Time Fishing Charters Pride's itself on demanding the best product's available to the Australian Market.
Matt has used almost every brand of a motor in his 25 years of Fishing and almost 2 decade's in the Fishing Charter Industry, He know's what's good......
There are a few key factors involved when selecting an Out Board Engine to name a few Weight, Horse Power, Parts, Service Centre's, History, Shaft lengths, Four Stroke, Two Stroke, Props list goes on and on!
Mercury has such a vast range of outboards covering both 2 strokes and four strokes in my opinion as a fishing charter operator two strokes isn't for me I need something that doesn't necessarily go super fast but need more torque, As we are pushing allot of weighing not only with the Vessel but the Passengers up to 10 plus Skipper and Deckhand so perhaps an extra Ton including 5 ton of boat .
With all that said Mercury Engines are Leader's in the industry and have been for many years my opinion and I have used all brand's I'm so happy with my 200 HP L4 Verado's that I have just repowered with them again after 3500 hrs it was time to upgrade with only an Alternator and regular servicing being needed that's pretty damn good for me !
Keeping in mind Reel Time Fishing Charters has a strict Service Schedule that must be met and with the help of Wes Frost Marine, my time off the water was kept to a minimum extremely good service!
In the turn of any event for eg when my Alternator after 2400 hrs went as I understand I have enough electronic's too light up a Christmas tree in the city lol, It was delivered that day from mercury's warehouse in Melbourne very important key factor in any engine you buy part's must be available in Melbourne to ensure minimal time of the water !
