If its a Yam expect to pay over 1,000 for a 15hp. A decent, modern Mercury/Mariner (2002 +) 15hp will set you back over 900.

25hp Yams circa 1250 - 1650. Merc's around 1200.

Cheaper options are Johnson, Evinrude, Suzuki. Every now and then a bargain comes along. Like the guy on here who bought a 2000 Yam 15 for 650.

I've a Yam 25hp 2 stroke on here at the moment for 1,495 or near offer.

Did it not sell as may be interested?

Got my 25 Merc of Peter about this time last year(ish) for bang on what he has said . I reckon its held it value to the pound.

A mate has a mint Johnson GT (13ish hp) paid 800 for it last year but others now going for 1000.

Always a bargain out here but unfortunatley they are the real exception and not the market price. Its been said that you can buy an entire rig with an angine for what the enginemay be on its own & then try and sell the boat etc to make something back....if you have the time and can carry the 'risk'of not selling of course.

As Peter says anything under 700 is likely to be older, less popular make, a bit scuffed or if you are very lucky a chance buy of a good one.

Watching this might give you a guide...

eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

I have the identical model Mariner 15 short shaft in mint condition... at the peak time of last year (around June I think) and exceptional one like it one like it made 1500 and another 1275.

I'd set a budget of 1250 in your calculations and you'll be near enough.

If you're also considering a 25hp be wary of buying the outboard ahead of the inflatable in case you are over the transom HP spec when you come look at a boat.

I often buy boats just for the motor. Makes better value for money but then you have more risk.

Good luck with your viewing. Hope I works out for you.
