Iím going to be replacing the DT200EFI on my RIB with the 225 Optimax Iíve purchased, so will need to move the DT on, but donít have a clue what itís worth.
I know this looks like an advert, but Iím genuinely after some indication of what itís worth before offering it for sale. As you can imagine I need to offset as much of the cost of the 225 Opti as possible by selling this.
Itís still on the boat at the moment, but has 3yr old fuel in it and I havenít tried to start it as Iíd want to mist some 2-stroke oil down the plug holes etc before trying.
Itís a 1997 XL shaft DT200EFI and hasnít been run now for @2.5yrs.
Before that it was running well, but I did have a comment from a friend following me that there was a distinct smell of unburnt fuel.
On my heavy commercial hull 6.5M RIB it would use @1.5l/nm at @25Knots, which is very reasonable, but as itís an older tech engine further up the rev range usage is obviously worse than a newer engine. At WOT @42-45Knots it was as best I can tell using @3-3.5nm
I looked after it well until 2.5yrs ago when personal circumstances meant I wasnít well enough to devote any energy to it. It had a new pump impellor and gearbox oil change every other year despite sometimes only being used over a few summer weekends and for 2 weeks in Devon each year.
Around 8yrs ago I completely rebuilt and fitted a load of new parts into the gearbox.
I had the hood wrapped a few years ago when all the red bits of the decals had faded, but now wished I hadnít. The wrap was damaged so I started peeling it off and a lot of paint has come off with it.
It will come with the 21P prop shown, a top mount throttle assembly, main wiring loom, plus Suzuki oil level/multi gauge.
Can anyone help with what itís worth?
Heaven doesn't want me, and Hell is afraid I'll take over
