The VZ300 is still available and it's definatley on their website.

Their four strokes are alot more reliable than their 3.3l two strokes right now from our experience.

i got in touch with someone from yamaha yesterday. He told me the VZ300 is available but that is in the short shaft. I going to need the long shaft the the 2400 and that 300 HPDI was no longer being made.
I know a few people with the 4 strokes and they are happy with the engine. I think that is how i am going to go.

I have a 2420 pro with the 250--4st Yamaha and am totally pleased with the motor. Runs 52 or 53 at 6000 r's with 3 people, half fuel, and all the fishing gear. This spring I am going to try a little more prop to get speed closer to r's. I like to cruise at 4000 and would like to run about 40mph,but I am at about 32--33 now. Have been told that I can run the 4stroke about 4500 r's at the same fuel economy. Have a fuel flow sensor ordered so I can see where the "sweet spot" is. The motor is very quiet,smooth, and you should get a little more speed with the 2400. One hint--comes with speedo and tach gauges. If you have a GPS you don't need a speedo, so opt for the single fuel management gauge which has tach and everything else that you need. Good luck

I use the mid grade fuel because that is what Yamaha says to use. I have used all 3 grades in this engine and others and I really don't think it makes that big of a difference, but I am not looking for top speed.I am looking for mid range economy as I run some good distances. Good luck

Time for me to replace my rig. My old Larson has served me well, but age has caught up with her. I have been searching and searching for the replacement and have narrowed it down to the 2400 Blazer, Triton 24LTS, and the new 22 Bay Cat by Twin Vee. I have been offered a sweet deal on the Triton. Super ride, super nice and well finished, but heavy and a little to pretty for charter abuse. Lined hulls just take up too much interior room. Since most of my fishing is out in Breton Sound casting decks are not very appealing to me. Hate pulling customers out of the water. The Twin Vee has a great ride and will fly with my Suzuki 250, but here again another pretty lined hull and too much storage. I have been offered a sweet deal on it also. The more I look the 2400 looks to suit my needs. Hard to beat all that open fishing room. I plan on pulling the trigger on the Blazer very soon, still price hunting for my best deal.

I would love to hear from you 2400 owners about your rigs and how you like it. Also would like to hear from you fellow guides that run one. How well does the deck drain? Any issues with water coming in from scuppers? Any other issues you may have or had?
