Not much around this side of the pond. I've just bought a pair of 2003 225hp opti's for 6500 from the USA. So much more choice at better prices over there. Expect to pay 250-400 shipping for a motor that size though.

Theres a few companies on USA ebay who specialize in S/H outboards and ship worldwide. They haven't left yet so I'll cross the import duty bridge when I come to it. At least I know I'm not paying VAT as they're going straight on to the Channel islands

Great , Steve Amato our local Opti mechanic has said he can lend me an outboard stand to mount her on and run her up.
