I'm CONSIDERING buying a new or used 90 HP Yamaha 4 Stroke if I can get a good price for my current 1999, 50 HP, Evinrude/(Suzuki), 4 Stroke engine that only has 80 hours and is like new. [Engine Family: X1PXM0050220]

What is the best price I should expect to get for this engine if:

a) I sell it myself
b) Trade it on a NEW 90 HP
c) Trade it on a USED 90 hp

Ron,

When I was considering buying the boat that it sounds like you bought, 17 outrage in Ga(?), I called around was was given $1500 - $2250 on trade in toward a new / or used motor. My dealer said if I sold it on my own I should expect $3000 at best.

If this is the boat you bought I would interesting in seeing pictures if you have any. The seller was not helpful in getting images or answering questions I had. So, I was not going to drive 14 hours one way to see if what condition it was truly in.

Jeff, I suspect this is the same boat & motor you refer to. As soon as we get some decent weather here I'll take some pictures and post them. I have the boat in the garage. I had to take the windshield and rail off to get it in there and don't want to take it out and reassemble it until I'm ready to use it. Then it will go into a storage facility.

When I bought it, the boat was in good condition but I spent 3 months cleaning it, rearranging wires, installing VHS radio and antenna, adjusting the tongue weight, rewiring trailer lights, installing a kill switch, installing a fuel/water filter etc. Next year I'd like to get the seats recovered and a GPS installed but that can wait.

The biggest problem I had was the gas tank, it had a leak and and the hoses had to be replaced. Had it not been for the tank, I would have thought I had bought it a good price. With the cost of the tank and hoses I probably paid a fair price for it.

Fortunately the motor is in excellent condition. I may keep it but have the feeling that the urge for a 90 HP will eventually win out over the 50 HP.

You won't get boo for trade-in and if you do they will just jack up the price of the new engine or installation price, etc. I would think E-Bay or craigslist would fetch you maybe low to mid 2's. I see 70 hp 1999's and up going for under $3k in nice shape.

Local dealer offered me a 70 2004 in the low $3's so you're right on.
