Genesis 640 Hard Top – Mercury 3.4L V6 EFI DTS 225hp Four Stroke

Genesis 640 Hard Top – Mercury 3.4L V6 EFI DTS 225hp Four Stroke

Due this boats previous outboard failing, the owner was required to repower and after doing some research on the new range of Mercury 3.4L V6 175hp – 225hp Four Strokes he decided to repower with new Mercury 3.4L V6 EFI DTS 225hp Four Stroke. The outboard was packaged up with a Mercury 17P Enertia Propeller, Mercury Vessel View 403 screen and DTS (fly by wire) controls.

With the boat being in such good condition, the re-power itself was actually quite simple. Apart from the installation of the new outboard, a seal/service kit was put through the hydraulic steering ram as it was leaking upon arrival, whilst a bulkhead fitting was also installed to the transom to suit the hydraulic steering hoses.

The boat reached a top speed of 48mph, while its ideal fuel economy was at 3500rpm which saw the boat travelling at 1.8km/litre at 21 knots.

The owner was very happy with the repower, noting the reduction of noise from his old two stroke, response from the DTS controls and mid-range torque.
