Thanks again, good advice. I'm going to buy the boat new as I have found it for just under 1k, but the engine I'll definitely look for second hand. I'll keep you all updated!

John Bridger marine have a used mercury 15hp 2 stroke for sale on their website. Dealt with them for a while and they have always been great. Might be worth a look.

Looks like a lovely engine but that sounds a bit steep price-wise? I was hoping for more towards 1k-1.5k - thanks for the link though!

You're getting some excellent advice on here !
Keep looking, I bought a 2004 Mercury 15hp 2 stroke a couple of months ago with Yam trolley, tank, lock & 5 litres of oil for 950 . A few marks on the hood but clean & fully serviced on fleabay.
You've just missed a really nice one on here for @1250
They're out there but might be a bit less money at the end of the season. Great little engine & if given a bit of tlc will last a lifetime.
Good luck.

Nice, I'll have to keep my eyes open, that sounds like a bargain price, lucky you! If you see anything before I do, please do PM me

Will do. I'm a long way from the South so don't have the biggest choice of engines to look at. If you punch Mariner 15 into the search you'll see a nice one that sold. very recently.
Drop Peter at boats & outboards a message. Top bloke & might point you in the right direction.

I have found a 1995 Mercury 2-stroke 15hp in fair condition, for 650, how does that sound? Would buying such an old engine be a little risky?

It is has been there a while so might get the price knocked down

Look for a used 2 strokes top in it's class Tohatsu 18 HP, beats any 15 HP and weights near same. Won't find direct oil inyection on smaller range portable models.

Happy Boating
