Evinrude engines are fantastic, own a 50hp and it's a beast! Huge torque and acceleration, very efficient and no servicing for 3years or 300 hours!!! It's small and great looking unlike yamaha and Honda engines and that matters to me.
Here's a nice video


And another


The proofs there...

I'm getting the impression that the Evinrude might be a bit of a Marmite engine.

I can see the weight advantage of the larger models, but at 50/60hp they are a similar weight to the 4-stroke alternatives. Is the extra torque really that noticeable, and is there a fuel consumption (including oil cost) penalty?

The no servicing for 3 years is attractive, but are they as reliable as the Yam/Suzi/Honda engines?

One more thing, I can't find prices online. Every dealer just says 'call for best prices'. Are they comparatively expensive, or is it just a case of they'll do all manner of deals to shift them?

As others have said, OUCH! Can't say that has had a positive effect on Evinrude's chances of getting my business.
