Evinrude advise

Hi does anyone know from these pics if this is a ficht? I've read a lot of places to stay away from them and don't want to buy one unknowingly!

Any advise would be very much appreciated

Thanks

Jon

Can't make out from the photo, but it has a "4" on the side, if it's a 4 stroke it ain't a FICHT. On the plate, there should be a model number & a date of manf. See if you can get those & post them. Tbh it doesn't look like a ficht & I'm not sure they made them a small as 30hp

Thanks. It's definitely a 4stroke. What are evinrude like? This one is a 2000 engine.
I am looking at it on Sunday but have little knowledge of them!

Thanks again

Jon

If it's a four stroke, they probably didn't make it. It has a Suzukiesque look about it...

Correct - all Evinrude & Johnson 4 strokes are re-badged Suzukis.

The new what? Johnson and Evinrude stopped doing 4 strokes around 2006ish, scrapping the Johnson brand at the same time.

They've rebadged the TMC 3.5, 4, 6, 9.8 and 15hp. Did hear that dealers weren't keen on stocking in the UK due to the price compared to Mariner, Mercs and Tohatsoos.
