I have a Beneteau F235... Factory says it is 2300 lbs but most owners that have weighed them would say 3300 lbs or better.


yes 1 cylinder is different than 2 cylinder and two stroke vs 4 stroke is different. I would expect a 6 hp 2 stroke to run stronger than a 6hp 4 stroke by some small margin. but not a 6 hp 4 stroke to run weaker than a 4 hp 2 stroke.
