    What kind of fuel range would I expect with a 2320 loaded for offshore fishing ? Hearing the 300 Yamaha is the way to go with this size Parker. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance. Stickandstay

    I got F250 on my Parker 2320 but after driving my friend’s Parker 2320 with 300hp, I highly recommend 300hp. He gets 2.6 mpg and I get 1.9 mpg but I will be getting a 4 blade prop soon.

    It's a high fuel capacity boat with decent performance so I'd say 300 miles. It'll certainly take you any where you want to go in Southern California, range wise, but the ride will probably have you pick your days.

    I think the new Parker 2320 has 137 gallon tank @ 2.5 MGP gives you 342 miles. My 2007 has 150 gallon tank @2 mpg gives me 300 miles.

    Correct! My 2016 2320 has a 137 gallon tank. I hear they went from 150 to 137 gallons because of some environmental requirement that went into effect.

    For the OP.

    I think if you can make the 300 happen that would be the way to go. I won't pretend to know everything about it. But talking to other Parker owners online the 250 seems to work pretty darn good. But the 300 matches the 2320 perfect.

    Also, about the range. I can't tell you how far you can go. But last September I did 141 miles round trip and burned about 86 gallons. But…This was with a 50 gallon bait tank full, 1/2 tote of ice, 3 dudes and all kinds of other stuff that goes into a trip. The ride in was so flat I had the boat up to 40 MPH at one point so I was burning more fuel than normal. This trip was out of Westport WA. The ride out was about 18-20 MPH.

    From my research, if you do have the F250 then adding a Permatrim and a Rev4 four blade prop might give you the same performance as the 300. I should know very soon here.

    At the Washington Tuna Classic the fleet of 2320's with mostly 300's and 137 gallon tanks were running 72 plus miles out of Westport, fishing all day and running back, loaded with 4 guys, lots of bait and ice(maybe fish), and all the other shit without carrying any extra fuel, and had a good amount to spare. Capable boats for their size for sure. Just fyi, If you're buying a new Parker(or Yami) the difference between a fly by wire 300 and 250 is only around $1200 and doesn't add cost to the rear helm option. More savings come with ordering a mechanical motor. My take is, if you're going offshore, get the 300. If you're staying in shore, like WA State's Puget Sound, not carrying a heavy load, and want to get all that back deck and good hull at a much lower price, go mechanical 225. I was really pleasantly surprised at the performance of the 225...but do not recommend for offshore and caution about resale. Also recommend Permatrim on all 2320's, regardless of power..

    Tested out my 4 blade this weaken from Davies to SCI and the new 4 blade got 2.0-2.3 mpg, 30 mph, 4,300-4,600 RPM, 3 guys loaded with 50# ice.

    big improvement over the old stock prop, time to raise the engine one hole.

    Thanks to Tom for the advice. I hooked up with Billy K today and bought his new one that had not been used yet. Just got done installing it. Will test out Thursday.

    Consider Installing a permatrim with the four blade. Totally changed the performance and attitude on the 2310 I just sold. I also upgraded to 24x12 trim tabs, which with the other two upgrades alleviated a lot of pounding and smoothed out the ride
