Could be.

More likely is that the owner wants to upgrade....

I think you'd be horrified at the cost of the parts that you'll need. I would advise you to speak to your local Verado dealer and get a quote for everything, but sit down before asking!

Seconded, Smartcraft gauges when not bought as part of a engine package are not cheap + cables, leads, helm control and batteries. 1k ish.

95% of used outboards are sold that way in the USA. It may appear to be a good deal but unless you boat is already rigged to match the engine it is usually not.

And you still have to buy the loom ( over 300quid) and a prop.
