Don’t you have much money or do you not travel that much? Then it’s a shame to buy an expensive outboard motor. In that case, it is better to go for a more affordable outboard motor. There are plenty of these, but how do you find the best outboard motor without making a bad purchase? We give a number of tips.

1 Used outboard motor

The general rule applies to both vehicles and outboard motors: the newer something is, the more expensive it is. That is why it is useful to omit a new outboard motor in your search for the cheapest outboard motor. Instead, only look at used outboard motors. Fortunately, you have come to the right place: we have hundreds of second-hand engines for your boat. You will certainly find the cheapest outboard motor here.

2 Search by price

Are you looking at our website for the cheapest outboard motor? Then it is difficult to go through all the hundreds of outboard motors in search of that one bargain. Fortunately, that is not necessary: ​​on our website you can sort all engines by price. This way you will see the cheapest outboard motors first.

3 Trade-in

Do you already have an outboard motor, but would you like to replace it? Then you can choose to exchange it. By ‘selling’ your current outboard motor to us, you will receive a discount on another outboard motor. This can make a big difference in price.

4 Power

Do you have a small boat for pleasure boating and you don’t need to go that fast? Then you can choose a second-hand outboard motor with a low power. The lower the power, the cheaper the price of the engine becomes.

What to take into account?

Of course, you cannot just buy the cheapest outboard motor. There are a number of things you should take into account.

Type of outboard motor

It is important to see which outboard motor your boat needs. Consider the tail length, the steering and the starting system. You can filter on all these categories on our website. This way you can find the cheapest outboard motor that you actually need.


Finally, it is wise to look at the maintenance that your outboard motor needs. Do you want the cheapest outboard motor, but is it very old or worn out? Then there is a good chance that it will cost more in repairs and maintenance. You may have the cheapest outboard motor, but the total maintenance costs will increase.
