Please give feedback on the ride, and any known common problems with the Boston Whaler OUTRAGE 26 c.2000. [What are the] cruising speed and top speed? [What are the] fuel [flow rate] numbers? I am looking to take the boat offshore. Thanks in advance.

Here is a link to a very interesting review of the 2001 26 Outrage: boston-whaler/boston-whaler-26-outrage-9188

This thread probably belongs in the post classic section, but there is a cool picture of this big boat airborne.

The Austrailians seem to love Whalers.

The speed at cruise and at wide-open-throttle would depend greatly on the engine power used. The fuel flow rate would also depend on the engine power.

All boats are diffrent ,,Loaded diffrent weigh diffrent are trimed and proped diffrent,,Try taking several 6gal tanks of fuel and run the boat at WOT untill the tank is empty,,That will give you a start and more time to learn how your boat behaves

That Pasco guy’s review made Pasco seem like a moron. He goes on about the construction of a Whaler and is totally wrong. Do some research on this site. This review has been discussed.

Not saying he is right but it is his perspective. Read some of his other reviews and he seems balanced.

I have tried searching the site before I posted. Maybe I am not very efficient with the search function, but I didn't find anything. I saw that review over at I was looking for someone who has spent a lot of time on the boat versus an hour ride. Not to mention how he disses the construction of the boat, I didn't take his opinion to heavily.

I understand the speed and fuel burn is going to be different, but the boat only came with twin 200s or 225s. Anyone out there have real world experience?

I have a 1999 with twin 225 Yamaha Saltwater Series. The boat WOT trimmed out with about a half a tank and a couple people and gear will run around 50-52. To be honest it is a little unnerving and it doesn't see that speed often. It likes to run in the mid thirties and can be trimmed out on a plane around 18mph in the snotty stuff.

We were fortunate to be able to get one of the last years when we could rig the Yamahas over the Mercs.

As far as electronics goes, due to that vintage of boat, you don't have the real estate to mount those huge displays. I have a pair of Raymarine 8 inch color displays,fishfinder/gps and gps/radar. It is a great set up.

Overall we love the boat. It meets our family needs very well. I would strongly suggest sea trialing it in the exact conditions/seas you will be encountering. We operate in Lake Erie and the infamous short chop can put you testicles in your socks on some days.

We had a 21 outrage prior with a single 225. Upgraded just for a bit more size and the second engine.
