present economic climate means its a buyers market unfortunately, think you`ll be lucky to acheive 200 - 300, dont wait to long cause the price is dropping every day trust me !!

I might have to edit your posts to say 'it's worth a fiver, but we don't want it-sell it to Nos'

So we all agree 900 should be the starting price.

Yes give it a try, age is the only drawback on it at that money but if the demand is there it will sell.

Speaking personally as one in the market for a 2 stroke 15hp and following recent sales - it is a buyers market for sure and I would not be wanting to pay 1000 for a year 2000 engine. If it was 2005 maybe...BO's earlier estimate is closer I think...

the only thing i would add is 2 strokes are really sort after now, especially if looked after ,and punch above there weight, whilst its a buyers market normally , good 2 strokes fetch more than they are really worth and they are going to get rarer than rocking horse shit now there not made!
i would hold out for what i wanted as someone will pay it ! put it on boats and outboards forum free listing dont think kit will be there to long:-)
one below year older 800

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/o...troke-PAA31293

Assuming you mean my "earlier estimate" of 300 that was a joke and if you can find 2000 15hp Merc or Mariner's in the UK with 1 owner in "very very good condition" I'll have 100 of them please. In fact make that 1000.

If your referring to my 695-995 quote then I'd agree somewhere in the middle would suit it well. 900 is a reasonable asking price if it's open to sensible movement to secure a sale!

I don't see it as a buyers Market by any means. A decent 2 stroke is very hard to come by especially in the higher HP range. If you have one you will have a queue waiting or it. I have a long waiting list on 5hp-60hp. Just cannot find enough of them to supply!
