The following is from Golden Bay Connections,
We would look at no other brand of outboard...
"We purchased a new Osprey 750 powered by a Honda 225 and Honda 20hp auxilliary from Bays Boating in Motueka in September 2007. We run tourist trips from Golden Bay to Abel Tasman National Park daily carrying 20 passengers plus all thier gear each trip! This boat has done over 1000 hours in just 6 months! We MUST have a reliable outboard! Honda has provided us with trouble free boating with fantastic fuel economy and brilliant servicing. We would look at no other brand of outboard."
