Im looking to upgrade to a Sweetwater 2286 by the end of this month. Purchase Date is 7/1/18. My dealer is telling me i need a 125hp for the TriToon boat. From what some of my friends are telling me i need a 250hp or 200hp at the least. I'm trying to do some research and i'm hitting a dead end each time. Does anything have an opinun or advice? Its going to be a Honda Engine but i really need to know the HP for a 22ft TriToon Sweetwater.

    200hp is the max placarded on the SW2286  I run a 150 Suzuki and that has plenty of push to it

    Go as big as you can and what you can afford. You will regret it, if you go too small. I wouldn’t go smaller than a 150.

    I have a Yamaha F175 on my 2018 2286.  I have only used the boat once with 5 folks on board and 1/2 tank fuel and saw 34 mph.

    I have a 2017 2286WB. It's got a Yamaha 150 and with two in the boat and normal gear and fuel, I can get the GPS speedo to get to 40 MPH at WOT.
