It was time to move on from the old two stroke and in to a new four stroke for Laurie and his Sea Pro 220 WA.
Mandurah Outboards re-powered this Sea Pro 220 WA with a brand new Mercury 3.4L V6 225hp DTS EFI Four Stroke. The outboard was packaged up with Mercury DTS (digital throttle & shift controls) as well as a Mercury Vessel View 403 engine management display screen.
The Sea Pro 220 WA is a fairly popular offshore fishing boat in the USA, Australia and even parts of Africa, it is a good all-round boat that can be used for a number of different applications, however mainly used for offshore fishing and cray fishing, especially here in Western Australia. With the new four stroke on the back the boat achieved a top speed just north of 40 mph and performed to the very high standard that we have become accustomed to with the new 3.4L V6 outboards from Mercury. We have chosen to run with an 18P Enertia stainless steel propeller.
On top of the outboard re-power, the owner of the boat was wanting to introduce some new marine electronics and decided on twin Simrad Go series screens. This required some modification to the dash, however what we have now is a very smart and sleek looking dash panel that allows both screens to be viewed and controlled very easily and they even talk to one another.
Throughout the re-power we also introduced new batteries, new saltwater deck wash pump and coordinated the manufacture of new clears for the boat. For us it is all about offering a one stop shop and a turn key package for our customers.
