Kingfisher boats are a well known West Australian built hull and the owner of this 2001 model boat has owned it since new. The boat was originally powered by a Mercury 140hp two stroke that has now clocked up 1400 hours and whilst the 140hp two stroke doesn’t miss a beat, how can you turn down an opportunity to re-power with a new four stroke.
We have paired the new Mercury 150hp four stroke with the SC1000 Smartcraft digital gauges and sea star hydraulic steering.
The boat reached a top speed of 48mph/42 knots. At 3500 RPM the boat is achieving just under 2km/L and travelling at 25mph/22 knots and at 4000 RPM the boat is still achieving just under 2km/L at 30mph/26 knots.
The Mercury 3.0L 150hp EFI Four Stroke is such an excellent option for a number of different applications.
