Surely, you'll be including the remotes when you sell your Merc 25?

I have 2 - one with Starter Keys and E-start provisions, and one that just has a start/stop switch.
The first one is mine, the second one i'm selling.

So you say i have to remove all the Electric stuff from the box/get a dashboard starter key?
You don't need to remove the electrics - but the lack of space inside those controls makes it sooooo much easier to swap the long multicore back to the engine behind your dash - especially if you have to change a connector or two on the end of it.

My Merc cable to Yam switches needed one bullet "gender swapped" I guess by reverse you'll need to change one too. (or use a coupler)

This of course, assumes you have the wiring for the Yam.

That is one purchase I will make when i have the motor.

Anyway the possibilty of using my old box reduces the strain on the budget, and thats good

Bottom line is all old 2-strokes have similar wiring:
+12
GND
Start
Choke
Deadman / stop
tacho signal
(maybe another for temp / alarm depending on age)

There would be nothing to stop you taking the plug off the remotes loom at the engine end & solder / crimping the approptriate bullets or eyes to the individual cores, then just "hard wire" it into the engine loom instead of using a plug.

Unless you plan to regularly remove the engine, all you have done is remove another possible corroded terminal from each circuit!

Ok, Thanks! Will do.
The To-Do List consists of
Getting the Boat
Repainting both inside and out
Removing Gummipaint from the Tubes
Reinstalling the Console, and getting new seats
Getting a motor
Install that motor
drive.

So the motor is quite late, still, i don't have to look for a new yamaha control, they are quite rare in germany, and accordingly priced.

Im sorta thinking of doing the same thing as the OP

Got my eye on OUTBOARD - 25HP Mercury in Belfast | Fishing Equipment for Sale | Gumtree.com

and

4 Metre Avon Searider RIB/Inflatable on Galvanised Trailer in Bangor/belfast, County Down | Boats, Kayaks & Jet Skis for Sale | Gumtree.com

and just wondering if I can get them at the right price, get a throttle control, and smarten it up (by polising?) for less then 1600... really tight budget...
