No worries. I've not posted to try to sell you mine so don't worry your not obliged to progress any interest. Happy to help.

I generally find Yams sell themselves anyway so it will go, the only question is who to

Oh I know it wasn't a sales pitch Peter.... Lol, I was just saying I was genuinely interested in purchasing a decent outboard

Put a deposit on a futura mk2 fastroller and Yamaha 25hp 2 stroke, all 2003, both can be described as pristine condition
I think I've paid top money for this kit but I don't mind paying for quality kit that's been looked after (from Discmick on this forum)
Thanks for your advice Perter and all For your advice

Well done, that outfit should be great fun. Sometimes better to pay top money for a minter from a contact than assemble a collection from unknown sellers.

That Ebay Mariner 15hp I linked to was a very good buy for someone at 785 assuming it is an OK runner.

Cheers fenlander
Yeah that 15 looked good, and a good price too

I've paid 2300 which I would say is on the high side for 2003 model futura and yam 25, but I really do think I'd struggle to find another in this condition for much less

I reckon a very good price - engine alone in good condition is worth 60-70% of that price ! You'll have bugger all depreciation to worry about if it all stays in good condition.

It will stay mint. I usually buy mint low mileage motorbikes etc, pay top money for model/year etc but I look after them and don't suffer depreciation.... Always someone willing to buy looked after kit
I'm away for a week before I can collect my new toy..... Then a week in work till I can play with it..... Arrrggghhh

Look at it another way you've paid 800 for the Futura. I think you've done very well. Enjoy!

I would be interested to know roughly the value of my Suzuki 2003 140 2 stroke (fuel and oil injection) runs well and in good condition.
