Sail outboards

Seen a lot of "Sail" outboards on boatsandoutboards recently. The engines look like Yams, and the website says their parts are interchangable. So, are Sail engines rebadged Yamahas or just cheap imported rubbish?

not yet that was a question raised by us to them but they said you could fit and they will supply us the ptt but not as standard
i think the new 60hp will though that maybe a ideal engine as im thinking of putting 2 on the back of my rib
