Valuation

4 yr old 15Hp Mariner tiller steered 4 stroke engine.

Serviced annually by MB marina, interim services done by us.

Cosmetically lost of scratches to the cowling (and the cowling decals) but no problems with the engine.

Nothing wrong with it, just no longer required.

What do you think its worth?

Shaft length? Hours?

Short shafts are more in demand.

Thats good, it is a short.

I bought it for a Jeaneau Rigiflex (old design) which i will also soon be selling.

Hours wise, I have no idea, there is no counter on it.

Hard to say then-Peter (boatsandoutboards) would probably be the guy to ask.

If I'm going to be brutally honest, a cosmetically tatty and unknown hours ex-training motor isn't fantastically appealing. However, it's the time of year (specially coming up school holidays) where it'd be in demand for a sib. As it's not very old,it might be worth sticking a new set of decals on it.

I'd Ebay it-with a tank so it can be used straight away- and let battle commence.

My bet is it would hit 995, like you say the cosmetics may be a drawback,

Answer is always the same to this question though, what do YOU need for it. That's often more likely to generate/lose a sale than anything else

To clarify the engine is generally in very good condition,unfortunly some pikie nicked the cowling when the boat was tied alongside a pontoon last year, I sourced a cheap but scratched cowling to replace. Hence why the cowling does not look so good cosmetically. Now of course it lets the rest of the engine down a bit.

(no jokes about some pikie selling me a scratched cowling as he no longer needed it please)

Thanks for advice Peter and Nos

As Nos suggest i will sell it with a fuel can and fuel hose so it is ready to go.

Luke, I guess Peter's estimate of a grand is a bit less than I would like but an easy sale would probably persuade me to go nearly that low. If i have to start ordering replacement decals etc then the price goes up.

May well go for more. Wills marine have a 2010 model (mint) for 1,250,

FYI I think Luke (no offence) is not your buyer. Judging by the emails he has sent me today he has 500 to spend, or 50 per month! He's willing to PX a 1980's DT28 though

Best of luck with the sale. Sure it will go quickly

Peter
