    Went through the same questions a while ago when I was looking at a yalta. There's about 8k difference as it starts to bump the price of the whole package up.

    Plenty of guys on here with 115's and they say it's ample, but when I can afford it i'll be going the 150.

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    i have a yalta 2000 with a 175 Zuke on the back. I cant really see a 115 in any brand or 2 stroke or four being anywhere near optimum for a 6 metre fiberglass. My previous donk was a yamy 150 2 stroke and it gave you heaps of spare power when needed. 115 yust doesnt have anything up its sleeve on a boat this size for extra load or in a big sea.

    The general rule for a 6 metre would be 135 upwards

    Cheers

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    Hi guys

    New to the site, well finally a member. Thanks for all the guys who have posted on here as I have found the info very usefull indeed. Now to the topic at hand. I have a Yalta Odessa 2000, not sure of the age, but I know its factory origional. It has a 115hp Mariner on the back and to date all I have added is a rocket launcher/ bimini which I have built for it. I will be adding 2 fibro seat boxes which I have made and removing the pedestals, but I have to wait till I find the right seats for it. As for the power of the boat, I have to agree with odes20. The 115hp 2st just dosent cut the mustard. For 2 blokes its ok, but there just isnt that extra power in it to get you out of trouble or to get you around at a great rate of knots. Its about good enough for family days out. The motor I have has been fully rebuils 147 hrs ago so its not tired by the previous owner which is why I want to upgrade to twins. Not sure what size, but I am leaning towards 100's or 115's as a mate has 2X115's on his 6 meter edencraft. Anyway, I should have photos on he next week for all to see.

    cheers
    Vic

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    G'Day Lads, In about 4 days (fingers crossed) I will be picking up my 1800 Allrounder with a 115hp Yammy 4 stroke. Getting them to fit all electronics while i'm working anyway so that it will be ready to go when i pick it up. Will post photos within the next week. Also, as i'm based in NSW does anyone know the easiest process to register the trailer? RTA website is useless but pretty sure i need a blue slip, although since it's new I won't need to weigh it. Is this correct? Cheers.

    I think it depends on the boat and motor john. When I first saw my Vagabond with a 115 I thought it would have required a 150 min (but this is the slightly lighter hull than the later Vags). A mate who has a merc dealership said he thought it would be underpowered, but, the only way was to load it up and see. So I test ran it with three blokes and it hit 70kph and hole shot was very very good - but the low hours Yammy V4 2 stroke with stainless prop punches above its nominal 115hp. Since I have added a heap of weight and find that with 3 blokes that typically go, heaps of gear, 150l of fuel, toilet, electric windlesss, 2 big marine batteries, big anchor, spare anchor etc etc its hole shot is still very good - it leaps out and tops out at 62kph. It's economical cruise speed is 45kph and she is very understressed at that rate. I really dont think the straight 115's had the grunt of the V. Cheers

    Looks great mate. I love your dash layout. When did they change to a moulded dash?

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    Hey all, im just a little stoked, just installed my HDS10 and Fusion sound system and went for a water trial today, very happy. The HDS will read bottom up to about 60kms/hr (the bottom is there strongly but detail is down), at around 30km/hr the bottom looks pretty darn good, and of course at slower speeds it is bloody awesome, i quickly ducked out to the Bindaree and dam she lit up (had the missues so didnt bring a rod) stupid me...

    Any just a shot of the dash to add to the mix, sitting around 30knts and holding bottom

    Jase,

    from memory the 1800's always had a moulded dash, different to the triple 555s.

    Nice boat paulhope7, enjoy..

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    F_b_a do you have any problem with the GPS in your Lowrance units as a result of the bimini or do you have an external antenna? Mine seems to be getting a fix fine, however it won't let me zoom in as far as i could when mounted in my open tinnie. Thinking I may need to find an external antenna from America.
