When you want to buy an outboard motor for your boat or dinghy, you will need to decide whether you’re going to buy a used or brand new outboard motor. While new motors are cheaper to run and have lower maintenance costs, they are expensive. In fact, they may be far beyond your financial reach. You can easily find efficient used outboards for sale online. Just run an online search and make a list of pre-owned outboard motors that have met all your minimum requirements.
Obviously, a comparison of the prices quoted by different vendors for their outboards must be done. This is because you are looking for an affordable outboard motor. Remember to also test run the outboard before buying it to ensure it functions optimally. In fact, it may be a good idea to take a mechanic with you to help with the testing.
