It wasn't on an i-Class, but I've seen one on a bug. Guy ran it for a year or so and then went to a Triton with a Pro XS after that.

UNICORN!!! Lol I haven't seen a merc on a bug since the old ones but im sure it can be done through someone. Might void a warranty through skeeter though since they have a contract with Yamaha.

Saw one at Amistad over the weekend and have a friend that put a Pro xs on his Skeeter last year. He says he likes it better than the Yamaha.

Hull and Engine are separate cannot void hull warranty with a different engine. Anybody will put any engine on any boat regardless, it just takes a little coin.

There is one that is on a hoist at Lake LBJ, Brand new Skeeter with a Pro XS. He has money, heard that he said if you want me to buy a Skeeter then put a Mercury on it. So the dealer did. You can buy any boat without an Engine.

Good to know! I wasn't for sure if it did or not that's why I said it might! Thanks for clearing that up! Haven't seen a newer one with a merc on it but I bet it looks and runs good!

Probably similar in cost to a Skeeter with a Yam maybe a little more. Two Phoenix boats side by side rigged identically, the one with the Yam SHO 250 is $1,800 more than the one with the Merc Pro 250 XS.

Skeeter doesn't have a contract with Yamaha. Yamaha owns Skeeter.

its like anything else if you have enough money it can happen the way boat manufacturers do it that are owned by motor companies it makes it cost ineffective because the package is sold. the reason Yamaha bought skeeter an g3 aluminum boats is to insure the motors that came on them are yamahas.

I couldn't believe the cost of the Phoenix boats in the Bassmaster magazine being around ten thousand dollars cheaper then the same size Skeeter with the same stuff on it. I'd take the Phoenix even if they were the same price.

You can't compare a fx to a 721. If you compare anything to the 721 it should be the zx250.

The consumer has options now. You have the triton patriot. Phoenix 721. Skeeter zx. Bass Cat Cougar sp. blazer 625. And I'm sure I missed a few.

Now if you replace the skeeter with a ranger you will have a proper setup.
