Honda BFP99 Power Thrust Portable Outboard Motor Electric Start 99HP 20Shaft.
Pontoon motor stroke. 27mph 43kmh Suntracker 22 with 7-hp engine and light load. Currently have a merc 4 stroke that starts every time just like my truck does. But as I explained answering the question what size motor for a 24-foot pontoon boat isnt only about horsepower.
Four-stroke engines have replaced noisy sometimes smelly old two stroke outboards. With a 115 you should be hitting the optimal speed even if your boat is pretty well loaded down with people. 18mph 29kmh Party Barge 18 with 75hp engine.
Modern motor mounts performance tubes and skinned bottoms with advanced steering systems have allowed boaters to enjoy speeds on a pontoon boat undreamt of just twenty years ago. 4-stroke electric start power tilt trim. If you will run the motor in the upper half of the RPM range most of the time- 2 stroke and 4 stroke will be fine.
Just about ANY pontoon boat with a 90hp motor can do that as long as it isnt loaded down with people. Price displayed in cart. 16mph 27kmh Starcraft 20 with 90hp engine and no load.
The 115-horsepower motor is an adequate size for most pontoon boats. BRP recently announced the addition of a fourth model to its line of Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series outboards designed specifically for pontoon boats a 13-liter triple-cylinder motor rated at 65 horsepower which will be available early this spring. Gear Ratio shaft length 2251.
Based on the previous information most 24-foot pontoon boats would do just fine with a 150HP motor. 24mph 38kmh Bass Buggy 20 with 60hp engine. The Evinrude Pontoon Series already includes 90- 115- and 150-hp models.
