Can a [new, unused] E-TEC still be bought?

Highly doubt there are E-TEC engines left at any local dealers.

There is no method for customers to know the inventory of all dealers. As Phil speculates, most dealers have very little inventory of unsold new engines. E-TEC manufacturing stopped around May 2020.

Many dealers, especially in the Northern US, are busy this winter servicing engines and performing off season repairs, and they fail to respond to email. A telephone call is usually a better choice.

To echo Butch's comments, the last time I spoke with my local Evinrude dealer, he said they have been "insanely busy" this year, probably a result of many people using their boats more than normal due to the pandemic. He said the telephone never stops ringing, and as soon as you hang up on a call, another one rings through. I believe he has sold all of the Evinrude E-TEC engines he had in inventory.

On January 5, 2021, Causeway Marina, a small dealer in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, had three E-TEC engines in their showroom.

[Deleted several posts on the sidebar topics on what sort of recreational activities some outboard engine dealers undertake when they are closed for the winter, and comments about unnamed dealers in unnamed locations and their business relationship with certain participants, all of which seems to have no relationship to the topic of the availability of new and unused E-TEC engines in January 2021.]

I just spoke with my local dealer, LOCKEMAN'S HARDWARE AND BOAT, regarding availability of new, unused E-TEC engines. Their situation with inventory of new, used E-TEC engines is changed from my earlier reporting (now deleted). As of January 12, 2021, Lockeman's Hardware and Boat have the following new, unused, E-TEC engines in stock:
  • two 25-HP
  • two 40-HP
  • one 50-HP
  • two 115-HP three-cylinder G2
  • one 150-HP
  • one 90-HP XL

An authorized Evinrude dealer can contact the Evinrude factory and determine the exact inventory available from other dealers for a particular model E-TEC engine. Lockeman's has used this method to have new, unused E-TEC engines shipped to them from other dealers to sell to their customers who wanted a particular E-TEC model. All engines that Lockeman's buys and ships-in must still be in their original factory shipping crates so that the engine will be properly protected during shipping.

Evinrude is very active in helping their dealers clear out any unsold E-TEC engine inventory. (I suspect they want to clear the way for any new boat propulsion products they may introduce in the future.)

Further, Lockeman's has been able to obtain new and unused E-TEC engines from some boat builders who have unsold E-TEC engines in their inventory, providing another channel to obtain new and unused E-TEC engines for Lockeman's customers.

For anyone seeking a new, unused E-TEC engine, I suggest contacting Lockeman's Hardware and Boat. Lockeman's is an Evinrude Platinum Certified Dealer. They were also recognized as a National Sales Leader by Evinrude. They have been in business for 102-years at the same location. Contact Information is available from their website, http://www.lockemans.com.

Anyone looking for a new E-TEC should contact Lockeman's about buying an engine from them. Customers of Lockeman's often travel hundreds of miles (or more) to obtain a new engine with proper installation on their boat or have an existing engine serviced properly.

ASIDE: Lockeman's has also taken on two new lines: they are in the process of becoming a dealer for SUZUKI outboard engines and for POLARCRAFT boats. And, of course, Lockeman's will continue to provide expert service for Evinrude engines, including the E-TEC, E-TEC G2, FICHT, and older engines. With many surrounding Evinrude dealers planning to curtail service on Evinrude engines, Lockeman's anticipates their service business will increase.

My relationship with Lockeman's is as a very satisfied customer.

At what was once a high volume [Evinrude] dealer in the [Pacific northwest] I saw [three E-TEC engines] on display. Two were 90-HP; the other was a G2 150 or 200. Two more were into a corner with SOLD tags on them. So [new, unused E-TEC engines] are around.

ASIDE: there are some nice EVINRUDE-branded outboard engine stands for sale.

What is the name of Pacific northwest dealer mentioned above?

[Moderator's note: the forum has no objection to giving the name of specific dealer in this thread.]

I found one! I'm guessing it's the same dealer you mentioned.
