One question though, I thought all the BF 200's came with the Yamaha engine?

That boat serves its purpose. However I'd not be interested in "outboard" performance. Direct drive and diesel engines (for my pickup trucks) is my choice of machines.

Something you'd like to share?Nothing in particular. Inboard is just by far a better handling setup. I've had them all and I'm happy with inboard propulsion.

Why don't you just bring yEr chubby aRss to East TN sometime soon while you have a school break and wet a leg with us down here? :confused: :D

I prefer having an inboard. I think the BF200 would be a good option though if you were using your boat in salt water. Outboards are much easier to maintain in that regard.

erkoehler
05-10-2005, 04:04 PM
I agree, outboards are easy to service, and that is one hell of a barefoot boat.

Easy to service and fast. It's the only MC that can muster over 51 mph. And I think w/that engine it will do over 60, with at least 110 hp LESS than any other current MC. It's all about the power trim.

If I had the money, I would buy that boat to keep up at our cottage in Maine overlooking the Penobscot Bay. If you get a nice offshore breeze, the whole Bay is glass, perfect.

I have seen a few BF 200's with Mercury engines on them. I think Yamaha makes the best outboard motor on the market. I have had 2 BF 200's and they both had the Yamaha motors that ran like a top. Absolutely no problems.

If anyone is looking for a BF 200, I am putting my 1994 BF 200 up for sale. I will be asking between NADA "Low Value and "Avg. Value" I plan to advertise the boat at $11,900. My boat is in truly excellent condition and runs perfect. It is Red/White and has the 200hp Yamaha Pro V engine with ~ 300 hours. Includes MC trailer, bimini, cover, and Alpine CD player w/ 4 speakers. It screams across the water at over 60mph and has tremendous interior room and loads of storage. Throws a nice wake for wakeboarding with a few fat sacks. It is also a good boat for slalom because the wakes are almost non-existent. Send me a PM if anyone is interested. I'll post a few Pics in a day or so.

im not interested in buying the boat, but i was curious . how good does a barefoot boat track and hold speed in the course for skiing?

I'm not positive so one of you with a BF jump in on this, but I thought the BF's didn't have any tracking fins??

T Scott
05-11-2005, 03:53 PM
Not Bad at all !! I weigh 210 lbs and it has no problems tracking when i am at 15-22-or 28 off. If I get into anything shorter than that, the driver has to be paying attention as I can start to pull the boat around a little. Although the boat does not have any tracking fins, the hull is a deep V all the way to the back, so the hull design itself helps the boat track well. The hole shot on the boat is absolutely ridiculous! My friend has an 02 Nautique and I will eat his lunch out of the hole. Of course, top end speed between the BF 200's and ANY inboard is not even close either. I can walk away from any inboard ski boat.....period! Awesome boat !

Correct, no tracking fins. The hull itself is a deep V all the way to the back unlike most inboards that flatten out mid hull. That hull charateristic in itself helps the boat track well. The only time tracking is a problem is short line lengths in the slalom course with a heavy skier.

Be carefull on your asking price because you may get it!

I sold my 91 BF200 last fall. I listed it on Boattrader.com for 10,000 and it was sold 3 hours after the add went online. My was also in excellent condition.

Before I bought the other inboard, I offered him 8500 for that outboard and he turned me down, so I don't think he is going to sell it.

You got that right!
I skied this boat in Cancun and the wake was butter.
This guy had Suzuki 150's on his and they do well in the saltwater.
