How much is a Johnson 15 hp late 90s ?

Hi all
Was looking for a 10 - 15 hp 2 stroke for my 3.6 mt sib
I have viewed a late 90s Johnson 15hp 2 stroke with tiller that has only done 3 hrs and is in as new condition.
Would this need to be serviced before being used and how much does a typical service cost
Seller is asking 1000 - is this a good buy?

No!

Johnson of late 90's would be worth around 700 tops. Private sale less again.

I recently bought a 15hp Johnson 1999. Paid probably to much at 800.

95.00 + Vat, full service price list at Servicing | Glasgow and Clyde Outboard Services Outboard Engine Servicing including what is included.

Buying from a dealer: 3 month warranty minimum + it will have been serviced and guaranteed working but will cost a bit more.

Buying private, cheaper, would always service unless they have recent receipts, could be great or could be a bag of nails.

Oh and for 2k you can buy a new engine with 5 year warranty so I would suggest that 1K for one that is 13-15 years old is not great value.


Last but not least. How do you know its only done 3 hours? I am not saying it has done more but how do you actually know?

good luck

Dave

Thanks all
Guy didnt believe that his engine wasnt worth 1k, preferred to keep it ( for another 15 years? probably)
Will start my hunt for a 10-15 hp for my sib soon (but given how crap the weather has been this year is it really worth it, probably not!)
If you are ever in Christchurch and need any help or free coffee contact me at Ronny's of Christchurch - Cafe, Sandwich Bar and Take away
