Value of 18 Outrage -- 90 Honda verses 150 HPDI Yamaha

I may be selling a 1985 18 Outrage and have a couple options powerwise to mount and rig prior to sale. Honda 2006 and Yamaha 2003 both low hour engines in like new condition.
It seems the majority here opt for and put a higher value on vessels with at or near maximum HP. Any ideas on a realistic value difference between a 90 and 150 rigged Whaler?

I think you might as well throw the money the 90 would cost right into the brink. You would be ahead of the game to sell it with no motor, rather than buying a 90 for it.

If you own the engines the 150 is a no brainer. If you are purchasing them the 150 is a no brainer but the HPDI may scare away a high dollar buyer.

Putting the 90 HP Honda on the transom will RADICALLY limit your pool of buyers. That alone is likely to drive the price down somewhat.

The guys are right, put the Yamaha on or nothing. I'm the owner of an underpowered Whaler that works fine, but 90hp Honda is too low for that hull and would be a problem rather then an asset.....Jack
PS: I just posted on another thread that 115HP wouldn't bother me and it wouldn't, but 25HP is 25HP!

To get the greatest return on your investment (and to give your buyer a great boat) you might want to look for a 15-20 year old Yamaha 150.

Appreciate all the replies, and very close to my thinking. Both engines already owned so that would not be factor. The Honda will go on one of my boats 'cause not going to use as anchor.
