Barn find

You need to see this to believe it.

A Mariner 55hp 2-stroke, long shaft , electric start, gas assist lift in near immaculate condition and only 5 hours use. Has to be the best part of 40 years old (age to be confirmed) and still commands a price of just over £1k.

One of the best engines Yamaha ever built. When these came out in 73ish they blew the competition away. Basically a copy of th OMC twin but built and engineered properly.

Then they stuck another piston on top and created the 85A which was better again
