Yamaha EF2400iS or Honda EU2000iA?
So we're about 1 week from taking delivery of our Beneteau 343, and so the fitting out projects begin. This is our cruiser for the next 10 years, till I retire and get the big boat. The list is at $35k, so whoever said 10-15% of total for fitting out is very wrong...its closer to 30% :-)
Ok the first major purchase will be a generator. Since we live in Florida, and need a generator for the home anyway...I was thinking of getting 2 each of either the Yamaha EF2400iS or the Honda EU2000iA I see MSRP on both of these is around $1100 - $1300, but thats MSRP.
In reality, what are street prices for these units. What can I expect at the dealer in terms of warranties, accessories, or delivery charges? And are these good (in sequence) for a 35 foot production boat? Would they work well powering the CruiseAir 12k BTU A/C I have installed? What about the occasional power tool (grinder, drill, etc)
Thanks for any info.
