    Nice, bet it puts a V8 to shame when it comes to fuel consumption. Also I can only imagine the possibilities of taking out the fire wall and using the space or part of it to make the aft cabin into a suite.

      Yes, there are possibilities, however,.....

      The limiting factor is co$t. A 200 HP outboard is about 17K, while a 200 HP V6 I/O pachage is about 12K. The prices are before cat converters, but I think you get the drift.

      This must be the reason why boat manufacturers do not design mid range cruisers for O/B power.

      Also taking out an I/O and replacing it with a bracket O/B is fraught with peril. The boat was originally dsigned to have the I/O power and not have an O/B hanging 3-4' off the transom.

      I have a friend who worked for merc as a marine engineer. His job was to work with manufacturers and look at their hulls and choose the I/O package for it based on performance. Then, they bring special I/O drives which allows the setting of the "X" factor and trim range. (X factor is the height of the ventilation plate above the hull bottom), and a small trailer full of different props to "dial it in".

      With all that in mind, someone arbitrarily hangs a bracket and O/B on it? Maybe it it was massaged like they did the I/O....

        Awesome possibilities... Triple fuel tank, storage on top of new fuel tank, lighter weight. The transom can be strengthened several ways to prevent any stress problems... I think its cool...

        It sure is fast...

          Tell me about it. Pop the hatch and jump into the Jacuzzi.

            Very cool indeed. Looks like it really scoots too.

              And the point is? Some people think a $30,000 diesel is worth it. This post is what prompted me to start the future of boating post as this guy most likely did this for fuel economy amongst other things. Taken in Germany they are probably $8 a gallon or more. This may also be another viable option to reduce consumption in Bayliner boats in the future. I know I sure as heck would take a hard look at one.

                  Wow, so very neat and simple. Heck I could weld that up in my shop for a few hundred $.

                    Very cool, that 2452 is hauling fast. I imagine light weight outboard compensates for heavy I/O power package. Only problem is forget about swim platform.

                      Point was: reason that not many O/B midrange cruisers are made by manufacturers. Most you see are mods to an existing boat.

                      IF the prices were simular, I would consider one.

                      Ease of upgrading or increasing power, quieter, etc. I would have considered it.....

                      But not at 5-10 grand more

                      REmember, most boat are bought by non-boater, or shall I say non-boating experienced.

                          Looks like a great place to store a generator.
