Default sold

I have 8 300 xs's and I need to sell 4 of them. It doesn't matter to me which ones I keep.

1 pair 2007 300 xs with 20" Sportmaster gearcases less than 200 hours
7 months warranty remaining

1 pair 2007 300 xs with 25" Sportmaster gearcases less than 200 hours
7 months warranty remaining

1 pair 2008 300 xs with 20" Sportmaster gearcases with 38 hours

1 pair 2008 300 xs with 25" Sportmaster gearcases with 38 hours

I will sell them for 21k per pair, your pick

Typically, 25" sportmaster gearcases will fit transoms that require 25-30" shaft engines, and 20" Sportmaster gearcases will fit transoms that require 20-25" shaft engines.

The Sportmaster gear cases are the heavy duty ones. They have the same parts that go into a Bravo1 stern drive gearcase.

The price includes new trim pumps and hoses

The 300 opti's are the most fuel efficient engines on the market. I have owned 10 of them and they have been extremely reliable. I just purchased these 08's and I need to sell 4 of them. The 07's are on my boat and can be sea-trialed

Are you re-powering with 09's? You have to be the only person I know except for an outboard dealer to have 8-300XS's for sale. Good luck.

No, I am keeping 4 of the 8 I have for sale. I just picked up the 08's for a great deal and I am passing the deal along.

I'll bet you could count the number of dealers in the US on one hand that have 8 used 300XS's....

Good luck Chris!

My thoughts exactly. Strap on those 300's and I would be running in the mid 70's with only two motors.

Well, quit being a (you know what) and let me spend your money for you. I'd get the ones with the most warranty regardless of hours. Where were these when I was looking for 300s???

The 08's ran out of warranty last month. But, they have been sitting at Fountain since they were new, and I am gonna try to get Mercury to extend the warranty or offer a cheap extension rate.

The engines came off of a quad 38 that did not have access to 91 octane fuel. He repowered the boat with quad 250 xs's that can run on 87 octane.

Jake, if your buddy is interested in them I will sell a set for trips. We will have to see if he could run 2 20's and a 25. If not, I know someone who has a 30" mid that we could swap out on one of the 20's.

Tireless, if your 25" engines are mounted on the center holes than you could run the 20" motors all the way down and be set up perfect. I am thinking atleast low 70's with a rooster tail.

Someone needs to hurry up and buy them before I buy a used boat to repower and sell.

I have to have warranty coverage if I am strapping different motors on my boat. I don't like the fact my current motors are naked. Can you check with Merc and see if they are willing to negotiate any sort of extension?

the engines come with trim pumps and hoses. The lower engine covers are stock and have not been cut for rear mount steering.

No controls, remote oil tanks, or harnesses.
