Anyway, will keep looking and jump on the right one when it appears..

We've got a Merc 75hp 4 stroke 2005 coming in this week and a Merc 90hp 4 stroke next week. Not many 2 strokes about right now. If anything crops up I'll be sure to let you know.

Consider this then your lucky day. These mint Yammie engines don't come up often... so withdraw the readies and don't even think about haggling on price! A feeding frenzy is about to ensue... Yamaha 2006 90hp | Second Hand Boats and Engines

yam 90

chased the yam 90 but its a no goer, dealer wouldnt give warranty unless they fitted it to my boat at a cost of 600!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and if i just bought it and fitted it myself then no warranty given and receipt would say engine sold as SCRAP!!!! meaning that the old fit for purpose claim couldnt even be used in a court should it be not fit for purpose..... got to be honest ive never come across anything like this before as in 600 for fitting just to get your warranty or sold as scrap at 2750!!!!! please note the above statements were said to me by the dealer but may be a different story should you try and buy it...thanks

Are you really going to tow it all the way from Wolverhampton to Lostwithiel for servicing? As in, are you really expecting to be able to meet the terms of a dealer issued (rather then manufacturers) warranty?

If you aren't, then why would the dealer saying that on a reciept make any difference?

dont quite understand where you are coming from? the point i was making is that why does a dealer want 600 to bolt an engine on and then and only then would they give you a WARRANTY!! surely if a dealer is selling an engine a warranty shouldnt depend on them fitting it, and why would they want to put sold as scrap on the receipt if they are confident in there engine....that was the point i was making......... dont know why you were refering to servicing etc etc

Sounds like they are trying to cover themselves both ways. Rightly or wrongly.

Firstly by only giving a warranty if they fit it (which they cannot do) I assume so it's fitted correctly to prevent any warranty claim for a fault caused by incorrect fitting. Unlikely

Secondly by putting it as scrap so you cannot go back saying its not "fit for purpose"

I think the point nos is trying to make is that the warranty may require them to service it in order to "qualify" (which shouldn't be the case)aim which case you'd have to return it to them in the event of a claim/service being needed within warranty. If your not able to do that then it won't matter what warranty they are offering.


I'm sure there is a compromise somewhere to secure a sale.

COMPROMISE???????????????????????????????????????? ?? believe me i spent approx 2 hours on the phone over the course of a day trying to sort a deal, even said i would pick up from them on a friday fit it out at my mates place in totnes over the weekend and then return it to them on monday for them to sign it off, as in inspect the fit out and approve it so i get my warranty. but no chance, its 600 fit out by them or nothing!!!!.... as servicing goes, warranty was only for 3 months,so wouldnt think it would need a service, i keep my rib in totnes so returning engine to them for a claim wouldnt have been a problem...... BANGING my head against a brick wall came to mind whist trying to sort a deal.... and just to clarify the engine wasnt a new one, it was a 2nd hand unit...thanks

That'll be because they can sell it easily at that price in that location, and someone will put 600 in their pocket for fitting it. It's business, not personal. They'd be stupid to do themselves out of the money.



I assume you told them it's a very easy fit without underdeck cable routing etc?
