Yamaha EF2400iS or Honda EU2000iA?

Hey All,

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.

For running the AC...you'd be better off with the higher continuous power of the Yamaha and the longer run time between fueling. The downside is the weight which is about 25lbs. heavier.

What about pricing? I cant seem to find any reputable online sellers of the Honda to gauge pricing. The Yamaha, I've found for $1100 or so online shipped.

Got my Eu2000 in Charleston for $900 (pickup)! Runs my 12K BTU perfectly. Its low vibration, low noise, and choice was due vaste, hudge, large repair centers here if compared to Yamaha. I can't handle Yamaha weight !

Use it to charge my Macbook, ipod, phone, tools, etc .. works perfectly.

Owl...I think Honda and Yamaha are authorized dealer only and pricing is tightly controlled.

I can't tell you about prices, but I bought a Honda EU2000 last year and am quite happy with it.

k1vsk will become famous soon enough
Bought my H2000 last year on-line for $850 delivered incl shipping/insurance. Forgot the name of the place but it was in midwest (not Mayberry) in or around Illinois I recall and easy to find with a quick search. If you want two, they were even cheaper.

I've scoured the net for that retailer and that price...no such luck. Can you PM with that info or post?
