I would go for a Yam/Tohatsu/Suzuki. I have heard a lot of "mixed" reviews on Parsuns.
There are plenty of small outboards out there for that price. Your best bet would be a local dealer who sells 2nd hand. BUT that's my opinion.

Was interested in a new 2.5 Suzuki as an auxiliary, but recently purchased a new Honda 2.3 on eBay from Pacermarine for 475, they pop one on for auction around weekly intervals at the present. Seems OK so far - air cooled (not too noisy), no gearbox,13kg, 6yr warranty.
It will be slow though 😎

I will pop round to MJ Marine today Al to see what he can do for you as they are having a sort out of stock for the end of the year books so I might be able to find one for you and will be speaking to Steve so I will get you that price for a Suzuki 2.5 and 4hp.

Have an old Suzuki dt8 two stroke, use it for areas that don't allow bigger motors. It pushed my g470 zodiac at 14 mph on plane. Weighs maybe 60 pounds. Great little motor.
