Advice as always most appreciated!
Its not a yamaha based engine, but theres nothing wrong with these engines, I had a 20hp Mariner version which was good, they are a detuned 25hp.
That engine looks to me like it has been resprayed with none original decals, so could be older than it appears in the photograph.
How well priced is it? Has the seller quoted an age for the engine?
