FYI. Check out craigslist seattle for this listing. Are 2008 $14k Evilrude 175's selling used for $11k a good deal? I have no idea or any interest. Way too many variables for me to even consider. Just throwing it out to the forum.

It's the old "jack 'em up so you can mark 'em down game".
9K each sounds about right

Brand new Mercury 175 Optimax's sell for $11,392. I think 175 Suzuki's sell for less than that, and they are 4-strokes.

Yikes thats so inexpensive compared to the ETEC:) I mean there was a place in DElaware that sold verdos, 150s for like 9500.00 plus install and all the other stuff...and I thought that was pretty good...Alamr something, cant find it right now...bout 120 miles down the road...one way from me...also a good wholesaler...of Merc's:()

Yiddl - Here you go. No sales tax either. The deal on the Verado 135 or 150 is amazing.

I saw the 135, but where was the 150? I called them along time ago and they were very nice to deal with...They are abot 100 miles from me right now, so anyone in my area shoul include the cost of a motel room over nite while they rig your boat.....Last time they even had left hnded motors..they get all kinds in and then pass the saving to everyone....If your looking for a good price these guys cant be beat.

Only issue is when you have an issue, its a long way backa nd forth thats all:)...but if you have a warrenty anyone can do the work who is authorized:))

My BEst, Henry

never mind ...found it..thats pretty outstanding!!150 verado soup to nuts...DTS, rigging, harness prop, smartcrafts, 5 year warrenty, thats pretty great stuff:) for 10,995 complete

Thats something to compare those used etcs to shipskip.

I fell in love with the etec s when they came out and the marketing and all, but its just a matter of flavor, get what you like and prcie ios just one of the issues. Bucka says the biggest issue is the dealership and service...and I would have to agree, second is price..there all good engines...

Used etecs...for 11...hopw can that be bad either?
they have to run 13 new at least...

but me thinks this is a for sale area...not a dicussion area....ooops..
