I usually buy Yamaha's, but I accidentally ended up with 2 of these (1999 Evinrude version and a 2006 Johnson)

I was really surprised, nice engine, quiet, smooth and light 36kg ish. The 99 sold for 850 and the 2006 for 1050, both on ebay.

Thanks to some issues with bigger Johnsons in the past there is a certain stigma to the name, however if the engine runs as it should, 750 seems a fair price.

I too ended up with one on my Aerotec, wouldn't swap it for a Yamaha now!

Sounds a fair price if in good condition and well serviced.
