Value of Tohatsu 3.5hp 2 stroke?

I have a tidy 2003 Tohatsu 2 smoke that I will be selling here in Ireland shortly. They're kinda scarce on Ebay ATM, so could anyone here maybe give me an idea of what one might fetch in the UK? When it goes on sale, I want to sell it....

Thanks!

There are a few on eBay minimum 300+ buy it now but not selling.
A few dealers are selling them 500+ and they are dearer than used 4 strokes that the same dealers are selling.
I bought a 3.3hp 2005 mariner 2t last year for 200 and it's mint for nearly 20 years old
Don't know what the market is like around you but you'll get a quicker sale for a better price in a couple of months

Thanks for that - I kinda suspected that 200 was there or thereabouts. Ireland is a small marketplace with a slightly different dynamic. I want it gone by mid-May, so no mad panic ATM.

I have a SIB and another outboard to shift so planning on an ad blitz in April

The only reason I was looking for a 3.5hp 4t was because of the throttle control but judging by the market the 2t is more sort after

Were I looking for that model in similar condition 250-275 would be what I’d want to pay over this way.

3-350 is achievable for good ones & the 3.5 is one of the better options. They are light enough to drain & post with a normal courier as long as you box them & describe them as "boat parts" rather than "engine" if your market is stifled post it to me and I'll sell it for you, they are mega popular with the wafis round here
