On some websites, a search for a used outboard motor can quickly produce tens of thousands or search results. So how do you know which is the right motor for you, your boat and the way that you use it? And if you purchase a used outboard motor from a private individual, will it be reliable? If you are looking to buy an outboard motor, then it is a good idea to do it through a dealer. Even if you are looking for a used one, you can then be sure that you are buying a good reliable outboard motor.

Buying an outboard motor: what should I look for?

It’s actually quite simple: your boat will determine what type of motor you need. Of course, there will then be other choices to make such as brand, price range and new or used. At Outboard Occasions, the leading used outboard motor specialist, we know exactly which motor will suit your boat and can present the options to you. Any questions? Then ask away.

Choices when purchasing an outboard motor

Purchasing an outboard motor without getting the right advice is not something that we would recommend. You could end up going home with a noisier motor than you would have liked, a gas-guzzler or a motor that is nowhere near powerful enough for your boat. That is why we always recommend that you consult a professional before purchasing an outboard motor. That way, you can be sure that you will soon be out on the water with a good outboard motor that is right for you.

What is an outboard motor?

What exactly is an outboard motor? The answer is quite simple. An outboard motor is a motor that is mounted on the stern of a boat in order to propel the boat forwards. The outboard motor also serves as a rudder.
