Is this any good

Hi guys

Been looking on fleebay and was wondering if I could get your opinion on this outboard

Mercury 15hp Short Shaft Outboard Engine | eBay

Made an offer of 1100 but it was refused, what should I go upto. Also he has some lifters if you look at other items, any good???

If these items are a good deal, no trying to bid on them, there mine



Ps. hope the link works.

It *looks* very nice indeed and if it lives up to the history should be a good buy. If he refuses 1250 I'd be surprised (I would always offer this 'outside' eBay and pay cash - if it sells for BIN at 1375 and the buyer insists on Paypal then it will cost him over 100 in fees) 1250 seems to be a fair price for a well cared for 15HP 2 stroke.

Wait for a reply from David (Fenlander) - he bought a Mariner badged one of these recently IIRC?

See what this older Yam makes later - I got some close up pics off the seller under the hood and I would not bid having seen them...

Going to buy a Zodiac cadet fastroller 360 activ-v SIB and I'm wondering which outboard to buy. Been looking at various engines all 15hp 4 stroke but I'm not sure what to buy with all the conflicting advice. The outboards are as follows

Mariner 15 (F-N-R on tiller)
Tohatsu 15 (Mmmmmm??)
Suzuki 15 (meant to be old design)
Yamaha 15 (expensive)
Honda 15 (heard poor reports)
Selva Wahoo15 ( Wahoo who???)

The prices are a vast difference so not sure what to go for. One dealer said the Mariner would be the one to get but another dealer said because the forward and reverse were on the tiller they did not recommend it as you turn it one way for forward and the other for reverse.

Any info would be much appreciated

Also if any dealers are interested in working out a deal for both I'm open to offers as I have not bought either yet.


All ways recommend Mercury / Mariners, good value and 5 year warranty!
