Yamaha 75hp (2-stroke) on Ebay

Nice Yamaha 75hp 2-stroke on Ebay. Bit pricey for a 5-year old engine, even if it is mint.

I reckon the price is spot on for this Yam, One of the most reliable 2 stroke engines in the market place. A bargain for £3500 providing it all checks out OK

IOM isn't the easiest places to get to, might explain why he hasn't sold it yet.

I looked at this myself last year, but the ferry there and back plus the fuel to get down to Liverpool didn't make it worth-while. The dealer (quite rightly) won't dispatch by freight, it's strictly uplift only.

That and the fact that he has no prices on his website.

Why is that "quite rightly", I have done a few "remote" deals on OB and boats, if/when paying in advance risk is pretty much on the buyer, not on the seller?

Only because the dealer offers a warranty with most of his second-hand outboards. But given that uplift is a logistical nightmare, it would be difficult to exercise the warranty if you're off the island.

OK, fair enough. If I would definitely want that engine, would sign a waiver regarding the warranty, suppose then the seller would not mind what ever delivery option would be used. But can imagine the freight is not cheap.

That's a cracking looking engine, and a good price for a Yammie!
