Out of interest why Selva or Yamaha? What about all the other engines?. I would'nt put Selva in the same league! most engines are cheaper than Yamaha!

I was told that the selva are yamaha re branded. that's why i was considering one of those two.

so selva aren't that reliable ?

I've never heard of Hidea motors and I don't think that there is a local agent.

any recommendations for other manufacturers?
Honda,Mariner ... ?

Before this turns into a messpit of rumour, I do remember reading a while ago that the 4- stroke Selvas were re- lidded Yams. Easy way to find out - any pics in the brochures with the lids off? Also if Yam have recently introduced a new one, probably worth comparing the Selva with the old model.

Now, in days of yore I think Selva made their own? But that wasn't exactly yesterday!

Just had a quick trawl of the yam & Selva Websites.

I am swaying towards the "paint job" theory - tech numbers & pics are remarkably similar.....
