The Mariner is still the same engine under the hood as 13 years ago. I think that says something-but then I've got one and love it
. I believe it's a downrated 60 which means it'll last well too.
You may already have the holes in your console in the right place too-the previous engine (4cyl merc) that was on your boat had the Commander remotes fitted to it.
The only real problem I've had is that I occasionally knock the choke with my knee when thrown about and it stops the engine-but it takes an awkward landing to do that. Oh, and it's quite wide so to get an auxiliary on the transom you'll probably need an auxiliary clamp.
Seems good on 2-stroke oil too.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
