The Cobia 217 is powered by a Yamaha 150-HP in-line four cylinder, four stroke outboard motor.
Yamaha is known for reliable performance, clean burning fuel efficiency and light weight. It's the perfect match for the Dream Boat and promises to provide years of worry free operation. With the 150 Horsepower, in-line, four-cylinder four-stroke being one of Yamaha's most reliable and popular outboards, it makes sense for this proven powerplant to be the 217's standard engine. Outfitted with a 14.25 x 17, three-blade stainless steel prop, this boat is reported to hit a top speed of 41.3-mph at wide-open-throttle. This powerful 2.7-liter four-stroke will push the 217 to a respectable 26.6-mph cruise speed at 4,000 rpm, while the motor consumes a miserly 6.6 gph, translating to 4.03 mpg, which is outstanding. Any time you can get a 21-footer that weighs over 4,300 pounds (wet) to give you over 4-plus mpg, that's a good thing.
