[quote=Geoff54;1220378]Sorry to disagree with you ( again ) but in this case I think the broker who wrote the ad' actually does know what he is talking about.

"direct drive" is a very specific type of drive without a gear reduction unit. No production pleasure craft is built that way. For more information on what is is, try here Tugboat Society of America
