Joel Ryan, Game Fisherman


"The twin 140s are just perfectly balanced on the back of my 6.0m Offshore Edencraft. The grip and drive of the counter rotating props really add to the stability of the hull, and the manoeuvrability of the boat with the twin engines really help fighting big game fish from a trailer boat."

Twin DF140As (2015 models)
Boat:
Edencraft Offshore 6.0m
Location:
Sydney, NSW

Joel, an avid big game fisherman from Sydney, NSW works in the motorcycle industry as a Product Manager by day, but when knock off time comes and the conditions are right, you'll see him out on the water in his Edencraft Offshore 6.0, fitted with two Suzuki DF140A 4-strokes, on the hunt for kingies, marlin, swordfish and whatever else decides to cross his path.

Known as 'Shake & Bake', Joel's rig of choice is perfectly set up for fighting big game fish and the twin 140s are "perfectly balanced" on the back to help get him up and going for when the hunt is on. As Joel says, "it's all about the thrill of the chase!", and the power and acceleration provided by the DF140As never let him down.

"The twin 140s are just perfectly balanced on the back of my 6.0m Offshore Edencraft. The grip and drive of the counter rotating props really add to the stability of the hull, and the manoeuvrability of the boat with the twin engines really help fighting big game fish from a trailer boat."

While Suzuki's product range is known for its unique features and innovations, one characteristic in particular has really appealed to Joel – their ability to provide better acceleration thanks to Suzuki's offset driveshaft.

"The ability to spin a larger propeller because of Suzuki's offset driveshaft and the gearbox has really helped with getting the boat so balanced and provide that bit of grunt you need to get up. I'm running a set of 14" x 22 props."

"The prop set up, the balance of the 140s and the fact they're so quick out of the blocks all work well together to really make it a comfortable ride, especially with the long, offshore hauls that I'm regularly doing."

Besides the acceleration, what other benefits do Joel's outboards provide?

"The fuel economy of the 140s is a huge benefit to me. Even though the Edencraft isn't a huge trailer boat, it's very heavy for its size at close to 3 tonne on the road, loaded up. The 140s push it along nicely, and run under 1km per litre on average, combined."

"It really is a heavy boat, once you factor in all the fishing gear and fuel. You need that acceleration to really get it out of the water and the twins [DF140s] on the back really give me that, so all I need to worry about is pulling lures and fighting those big game fish".

Karl Stubbs, The Commuter


"I recently bought a DF70, which I'm absolutely loving. I'm saving a lot of money on fuel and it's good for going offshore, reliability, it's quiet, I'm loving it."

Karl Stubbs, The Commuter


Outboard Model:
DF70
Location:
Bayview - Pittwater, NSW

"Hi, my name is Karl; I work for Johnsons Marine Services. I live on the central coast and I travel daily to work in Newport, which is approximately 12 miles (19km). I recently bought a DF70, which I'm absolutely loving. I'm saving a lot of money on fuel and it's good for going offshore, reliability, it's quiet, I'm loving it."

How much fuel are you saving?

"I worked it out the other day, I'm getting 45 miles (72 km) out of a 24 litre tank, which is I reckon pretty good. At 20 knots!!! I don't think there's is a lot of engines around that are doing that at the moment." (Karl was running a 90hp V4 Johnson 2 stroke using almost a 3rd the fuel).

Since you've done the switching to Suzuki, have you work out how much money you are saving?

"Just under $5000 a year in saving, a lot more money in my bank account for that. I switch to Suzuki late December (6 month ago) and I'm up to $2500 dollars that I've saved on my fuel bill, which is very good."

Are you happy to have made the change.

"Definitely, I wish I‘ve done it sooner."

Mike, Bayview Water Taxi Driver


"Now that I've tried it and had it for a while and I'm extremely happy with it. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. I am a commercial operation so to me it is very important to have reliability and performance so I would definitely recommend it to a friend."

Mike, Bayview Water Taxi Driver


Outboard Model:
DF200A
Location:
Bayview - Pittwater, NSW

"Hi I'm Michael and I own a Pink Water Taxis and we provide a service to this beautiful area, the Pittwater area. We get quite busy down here in Pittwater and a month ago I had the opportunity to try out the new Suzuki (Suzuki 200>….) My previous outboard was a 150HP (different brand) and after doing some research on the new Suzuki 200, we decided to give it a try."

What are the benefits you found from using the Suzuki, are saving any fuel and how is your boat performance?

"I must say the boat performance has improved dramatically; the boat is a lot quieter so my customers can talk to me now. With the previous model the noise was a little bit annoying. We spin a bigger prop so it allows us to get on the plane a lot quicker and we save quite a bit of fuel so I don't have to refuel as often as I do and I can rest assured on a busy day that my tank will last me through the shift." (Michael was running a F150 Yamaha and the DF200A is using less fuel).

How many hours do you do a year?

"We do about a hundred hours a month so from a 1000 to 1200 a year."

Would you recommend Suzuki to a friend or customer?

"Now that I've tried it and had it for a while and I'm extremely happy with it. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. I am a commercial operation so to me it is very important to have reliability and performance so I would definitely recommend it to a friend."

Is there any else you would like to add about your outboard or in general?

"In general I must say, the whole driving experience is a lot more pleasant now. The handling of the boat has changed, if I get very busy it's very comfortable and it responds a lot quicker. It's a pleasure to be in this boat now."
