I would if I could find a decent price 175/200 They certainly dont seem to be commonly for sale.......

No different to any other used outboard without warranty surely?

From my experience I would always buy new now.

Have had second engine in the past! Not a great experience

Get something from a dealer, with a warranty!

Always better to have somebody you can rely on.

John Price at Ribstuff would be worth speaking to if you're thinking of the Etec. They often have relatively new 2nd hand units which still have warranty.

As long as the 2nd hand ETEC is under 5 yrs old then you would have the remainder of the 5yr European warranty left. Therefore no risk. Just give the serial number of the unit you are thinking of buying to an Evinrude dealer and they will give you the warranty details.

Any engine outside of warranty regardless of make would have the same risk issues.
