How much discount?

How much discount would you expect off a new 200 4-stroke?

At least 17.5% if I'm right and you don't pay VAT in the channel islands?

Yep, absolutely right, no Vat in Jersey yet! So would 12.5% seem slightly mean? or fair?

So what has "fair" got to do with it? Make a low ball offer and negotiate from there. Don't forget " what else can you throw in?" to make the deal more attractive. Oil, spare plugs, cables, free service, etc. etc.

So how much profit do you think there is in a new motor?

That depend on your definition of profit. Are you talking about mark up to the price the seller paid for it? Did the seller buy it from a distributor or from the manufacturer. Has the seller had to pay import duty or VAT on it? Does the seller own the engine or is he selling it on consignment? Makes a HUGE difference. If you talking about the difference between the price the manufacturer sold it to a primary distributor for and the recommended retail price: I would guess at at least 80% and maybe as high as 100%

I think we both know what I'm talking about. profit for the retailer, selling it to the customer (end user). If you think 80 to 100%, then your dumber than you make out!

That is not what I said. Read again more carefully. Next time I am in Hamble I will have to drop by and diggle your dirk.
BTW, sorry to hear about the loss of Budgie

From what I've been told there's not much profit selling Evinrude and Johnson motors, the money is in the servicing.
