I purchased a Dauntless 22' at the Miami boat show. I have the option to have a Mercury engine install by BW, or a Yamaha by ny dealer. I would like to hear some recomendations on the size and the make of the engine that would go best with this boat. Thanks

Will they sell you the boat without an engine or rigging, so you can select a brand and any other engine Dealer of your choice?
If so, you'll save a lot of money by going elsewhere.

If not, go with Mercury from the factory, as it will save you several thousand HP to HP.
On a boat like that, I'd go with close to max rated HP, either 200 or the 225 maximum.

Here are some representative prices in the SE Florida market: (Mercury)

200 CARB: $8135
200 EFI: $9553
200 Optimax: $11319

225 EFI: $10349
225 Optimax: $12151
