An arm and a leg

Gt

I think your big challenge will be to get someone who has one for sale......then start bidding.

Price of Suzuki 300

http://www.suzuki-marine.co.uk/outboards/

or if you live/shop in the US:

http://www.edsmarinesuperstore.com/suzuki_outboards.htm

Frustrating when there is such a good exchange rate for the £.

Pat is partialy correct. However, please remember that using the dollar/pound exchange rate will lead you down the garden path. The dollar has about the same purchasing power in the US as the pound has in the UK. Example: I pay 5 dollars a pound for sirloin steak and in the UK it is 5 pounds a pound. This applies to most things. While the dollar is low you guys in the UK should take advantage of it. Bought a 1/2lb fillet steak from Safeways yesterday for 2.75 dollars

Ok but dose anyone know how much it would cost to ship and pay the import tax etc a outboard from the states to the UK.

I worked out the cost of the 90hp at being around £3.6k from that site ???

Shipping about £500 - vat at 17.5% and maybe some duty as well.

The hardest part is finding a dealer who is interested in selling into Europe, (finding one who knows where europe is can be hard!!!!) as they quite often have restraints on selling out of their area. You'll pay around 4-500 sterling to fly it in from the East side, Miami, New York etc, plus insurance, then you'll pay 2.7% duty, 17.5% vat, plus a paperwork charge of around 20 quid.

Once you've got it here you'll need a local dealer to PDI it, and you'll only get a years warranty.

You also need to be aware that the package that you buy in the Staes can differ from what you would get here. ie, an opti in the US won't come with a rigging kit or a prop, these are extras!
