Evinrude Servicing Intervals

I'm interested in viewing a boat with a 2007 Evinrude 175hp on the back that's done 331 hours. I've asked the vendor whether he has a comprehensive service history for the engine to which he replied: 'yep, serviced just the once in March 2013 when it had completed 300 hours'.

So, for someone buying a new Evinrude the 300 hours until first service is a powerful sales feature but for someone like myself considering a pre-owned one, it kind of seems 'wrong'. The engine has been serviced once in it's life, is out of warranty and to my cynical mind, probably going to need a bundle of tlc (cash) anytime soon.

Or am I completely wrong?

I'd just make sure everything was changed at the 300hr service what should be done make sure it's had a complete new water pump because when my etec went in for its first service they didn't bother changing the water pump so as long as the service has been done right & all else is in order it should be ok 👍

It's 3 years or 300hrs for the first service. So if fitted in 2007 it presumably should have been into the dealer on it's 3rd anniversary 2010 and then again in 2013 regardless of hours.

I had the same option last year buy a 3K low hours e-tec 90 without a service and no warranty or spend double and get a new one with 5 years warranty.

Ah, wasn't aware of the either/or scenario Col. Thanks for pointing that out.

Yup, 3 years or 300 hrs. Ask to see the engine printout that should have been done at the service.
