My Monterey

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have a 295sy. I bought one this year and think the boat is great! I have had a few issues pop up...cabin isotherm is not keeping beverages very cold and zinks on outdrive only lasted 4 months. Is that normal for merc? Last boat had Volo penta and zinks would last 6 months easily.

Hi there

 

I´m thinking buying that boat this year, how it runs? what engine do you have? 380 Merc DTS Seacore?

 

For merc Zyncs 4 months depends on what water is on in Portugal on the South zyncs change every 6 to 7 months on the North changes are 3 to 5 months

The boat handles well thus far we've used it in back bays and rivers. Top speed about 42 miles per hour. Can be a little tricky with a single motor on docking if there is a strong current or wind. If you can get one with a bow thruster I would recommend that

Hi there

 

I think about that, a bow truster is a must have on the size off this boat with 1 engine, even on a 278sc try to dock with low wind is not easy, if you dock on reverse, is a litle problem handling the front not to crash on the boat on your side on a marina.

 

If we think about that a litle, i supose that all boats from 8 meters should have a bow truster even if is a extra, i´ll try to speak to the dealer here if i go with the deal and ask him to ask Monterey if is possible to buy the boat with a bow truster even if it cost more money, but it will be a very good investment.

 

About your question did you use Quicksilver zyncs?

I wonder if anyone has noticed a list on and 2021 or 2020 Monterey 295. It sits a little low at the port side stern. I can't see any reason for it as far as distribution onboard.
