Does the new Brunswick 1998 Haul with a 1998 200hp Yamaha factory Rebuilt Power Head with 3 year warranty have any advantages over a pre 1998 21 ft Outrages?

The Pre 1998 models I am looking at are 1994, 1996, and 1997. They all have older Johnsons and Evinrudes on them. I believe the 1997 has a 225 hp OMC with 400 hrs, the 1994 has a 200 hp Yamaha with 871 hours, and the 1996 has a 200 Evinrude Ocean Runner rebuilt in 2004 with a few hours. The 1998, 1997, 1996 and 1994 all have custom leaning posts and rig stations for bait and fish packages.

Is the 1998 or the pre 1998 a better Haul? Thank you to all proud Whalerman. HC

I'm afraid I don't know what the Haul you are talking about!

Its the '98 and newer Euro compared to the pre 98 like the 97 and 96 Hauls!

OpppS I Should have said "HULL!"
Looking for the better one? Is it the 1998 or the 1996/7?
What Hull-form proves to be extremely stable in a following sea!

Can't comment on the the 98's other than they have less room than the earlier models you have referred. Though I can say being a former owner of a 1996 21 Outrage that it is a great boat and very sea worthy. Rides great, very dry, lot of range, and lot of space with the two deck boxes and large front deck box.

Thanks Tully_Mars:

What do you feel about a new Power Head 200 hp Yamaha Salt Water Series II on the back transon of that 1998 fish mobile?
I assume a 225 hp Johnson was the origial motor.
Why was there less space on the 1998 last year? Was it that a larger console was installed?
After six years I assume that many of the issues I read about on an on line report were corrected. Thanks HC

Just a little less room because of the Euro Transom, but not a big deal. The 21 Outrages with the head in the console really are the ones that eat up the room in the boat.

I think a 200 would be fine on the boat. Mine was powered with an Evinrude 225hp and it would run 48mph, a 200 wouldn't run much less if any at all. From the drawings on Whalerparts.com the console on the 98 seems to be the same console I had on my 96 model.

I think it would be a fine boat.

Capt. Tuly Mars:

I have a Purchase Agreement on the 1998 and am waiting on a Sea Trail and history of the Yamaha 200 rebuild! I was told the rebuild is a new Yamaha Power head from factory, but the work was done by a Florida Marine shop? I will have to look them up and ask for their creditials. I am waiting on documents, receipts, and history. A dual axle Continental with I believe four 14 C tires/wheels come with the Boat. It has a capacity of 5000lbs. Does that seem like it will do it? I have a list of equipment, titles, and insurances I am going to put into place before I tow her back to Delaware. 1200 miles. I will check the bearings and make sure Buddys are on the trailer too. I am told she comes with brakes. Thank you Captain. HC

I hope it works out for you. On trailer weight you should be ok. Motor: 500lbs. Boat: 2600lbs Fuel: up to 900. This is under the 5000 so should be ok unless you fill the boat up with a ton of stuff. The power head if new ought to not have signs of corrosion or scuffed bolts if new. Regardless, I have a friend running a rebuilt 1992 250 Yamaha and is not having any problems.

Best of luck,

Capt. Tully Mars

If I were you I would have the old owner have the bearings repacked before you get there. Find out if the trailer has a spare tire. Nothing like trying to find a tire when your stuck on the side of the road. Don't forget the lug wench. A lot of Boat owners don't care about the trailer. I bought a used boat last summer on the east coast and brought it back to MN. I knew I should have had the seller do the bearings but things happened to fast. I made it 50 miles, had to replace two hubs and all four sets of bearings on a two year old trailer.
I had to spend two days sitting in a hotel waiting to get the parts.
