Owners Scott Connelly and Skip Deaton, who have powered the Charleston (S.C.) Water Taxi with two sets of Yamaha F150 outboards that have run for 6,800 hours and 8,700 hours, respectively, have decided to power their newest vessel with Yamaha F200s.

The business offers ferry service and dolphin-watch and sightseeing cruises.

“As much as we rely on our F150s as true workhorses, we were excited to be able to choose Yamaha’s F200 outboards for the Dorothy Marie,” the 40-foot Corinthian catamaran that recently was added to the fleet, Connelly said in a statement.

“With digital electronic control, we can look forward to even smoother operation shifting in and out of gear, reduced rigging components and maintenance — all fantastic benefits when you’re on the water running a high-hour commercial operation like ours,” Connelly said.

Yamaha plans to monitor the performance of the new twin 16-valve DOHC inline four F200 application under commercial load, and anticipates that the advanced technology design and impressive power-to-weight ratio — as well as improved fuel economy — will be big assets in daily operations for the Charleston Water Taxi.
