27 Ft. Motor Boat

Post by acelisjr » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:09 am

I bought the plans for the 27ft. MB and I'm still playing the options of either a stern drive or outboard motor. Pros and Cons and details of installation? What is the maximum horsepower the boat design take? Can I power this with 2 - 300 hp engines? Please advise. Thank you.

Thank you for your question. I am sorry I didn't see your message before.

You could go for an outboard mounted at the transom. You would have to make some adjustments since the design is made for the outboard in a transom, but the changes are limited and pretty much straight forward I think.

60 hp is the maximum I recommend for this design.

A stern drive is much to install in this design. I am not even sure there is room for the engine and drive in the hull, so I would not recommend this for the boat. If you want an inboard engine I can recommend using a sail-drive instead of a stern drive.

Kind regards,
Morten
