Boat may not be quite as tidy as the other one but engine will keep the value up better .
Value aside still not sure which engine is the best to have .
The mariner is 30 kilo lighter and 5 hp more so would have the edge on performance .
Just how much more fuel the mariner is going to use is the question , and what is the actual cost of that over a season . Bearing in mind the other boat wioth the mariner is at least £500 cheaper and more like a grand if I get a deal.
That dealer is unlikely to drop much off his selling price
