Hi everyone.

I recently bought a Baronet 15ft boat with 40hp yamaha enjin.

Could you please give advice on the following:
1. Is it possible to add another 40hp enjin onto it,
2. Has anyone gone out to sea with a baronet 15ft. If so, how did it perform?

Thank you.

Hi White Rabbit,

generally Baronets are aimed at restricted waters and estuary usage, but should be fine inshore fishing on a calm day.

In regards to adding another 40 on the transom, I wouldnt recommend it. Your boat will be overpowered and very low in the water at the transom.

I would say if you want two motors either add small kicker motor or get 2x25hp or maybe 2x30hp.

But do your research, on your buoyancy Certificate it will give you a maximum motors weight on the transom.

Hope this helps.

Hi Alex,

I've checked the Buoyancy certificate, it states that the maximum propulsion weight should not exceed 200 kg.

Further the boat was fitted with approved H Polyurethane R897 and 5005 mixture foam which gives the boat a total flotation percentage of 85%.

The boat also have the following weight :
Light weight - 680 kg
Dead weight - 360 kg
Maximum weight 1040 kg

The boat really moves very well with 1 person onboard - you will definetly be able to ski behind it, but when the crew gets to 3, 4 she really struggles to get going, I would say maximum speed 20km/h maybe 25km/h.

Would you still feel that 2 40HP is still to much for the vessel given this information?

Thank you in advance.

Hi White,

I don't know what motor you are running currently but a yamaha 40hp XWL model weighs 76kg so two of those should be fine then if your max transom weight is 200kg.

But for a 15ft boat 2x40hp seems a bit big.

You cant test your boat while at rest in calm water and let a mate of yours roughly around 76kg stand on the transom and you can see roughly the way your boat is going to lie in the water and think of the freeboard at the transom.

I would recommend rather going for a larger single motor IE 50hp-60hp it be an easier process and you'll get the desired performance for your needs.

good advise A1ex

WR 911

Remember waves run at around 30-35km/h.

So coming back you will need more speed to get away from a wave.
