"Hi I'm Michael and I own a Pink Water Taxis and we provide a service to this beautiful area, the Pittwater area. We get quite busy down here in Pittwater and a month ago I had the opportunity to try out the new Suzuki (Suzuki DF200A) My previous outboard was a 150HP (different brand) and after doing some research on the new Suzuki 200, we decided to give it a try."
What are the benefits you found from using the Suzuki, are saving any fuel and how is your boat performance?
"I must say the boat performance has improved dramatically; the boat is a lot quieter so my customers can talk to me now. With the previous model the noise was a little bit annoying. We spin a bigger prop so it allows us to get on the plane a lot quicker and we save quite a bit of fuel so I don't have to refuel as often as I do and I can be rest assured on a busy day that my tank will last me through the shift." (Michael was running a F150 Yamaha and the DF200A is using less fuel).
How many hours do you do a year?
"We do about a hundred hours a month so from 1000 to 1200 a year."
Would you recommend Suzuki to a friend or customer?
"Now that I've tried it and had it for a while and I'm extremely happy with it. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. I am a commercial operation so to me it is very important to have reliability and performance so I would definitely recommend it to a friend."
Is there anything else you would like to add about your outboard or in general?
"In general I must say, the whole driving experience is a lot more pleasant now. The handling of the boat has changed, if I get very busy it's very comfortable and it responds a lot quicker. It's a pleasure to be in this boat now."
