Lots of boaters ask this question, is it better to have twins or singles? well most of us know that twins are obviously safer and you always have a backup just incase something happens to one of the motors. This is a difficult question to answer because it is all about what the boater will be doing. If you are going to be doing a lot of offshore you should definitely go with the twins especially if you are gonna go far offshore because a single outboard is just too risky. If you are an inshore type of boater you have to decide what you want and most importantly what type of boat you want, not all boats have twin capabilities. If you are looking at a boat with both capabilities its on you to decide if you want to pay for the extra maintenance its gonna cost you, or just go with the single since you aren’t an offshore type of boater and it isn’t such big of a risk. Good luck choosing a new boat or repower option and stay safe out on the water.
