Default Does $5200 to rig a single Suzuki 300 sound high??

Hey guys I am in the process of getting repower quotes for my 85 Mako 254. My local Suzuki guy came in at $18,625.91 for the engine and $5200 for rigging, and an additional $700 for the 990C0-00C10-KIT. Essentially making the final cost of the rigging $5900. All in with taxes added I am at $25463.95. To me the engine price sounds good, but I feel the rigging is coming in on the high side. I would love to hear some opinions on this.

are the controls/ guages part of the engine pricing? or did they add them into the "rigging" price?

That rigging price is ridiculously high if the controls and guages are included in your engine quote.

That is crazy high. At that price, I'd call International Marine and see if it was worth it to haul the boat there and back!

Don’t know where you are but Intl Marine in Ft Lauderdale advertises motor for 17,300$...... I got a quote for a 200 recently and rigging was about 3k

Get the shops hourly rate, and shop the install. Be sure to know exactly what is inculded (and thus, excluded too), and buy just the engine and what's included with it, and get a lrice for what you need thats excluded. If its mostly labor, even at a little over $100 most shops are getiing now, then yeah, that's ridiculously high.

my experience is that like for like without extraneous work, can range from 1600-2500...(pulling older motor, removing old cables, placing new cables, guages usually need to be refit, but not always, hang new motor, reattach, etc)....but changing motors / brands / size / can cost more....but not 6k

I was quoted $19500 for a single 300 installed or $18500 for a single 250 installed. This includes fly by wire rig kit for single station, 1 color digital gauge, harness, sst prop, installation, seatrial, and gimme 6 protection.

did you get a second or third estimate from other places? that would be the common sense thing to do...

Is that quote going to include dinner also?

That gauge is $414 on ebay.

I didn't look at the part numbers, but that's probably only $2000-2500 worth of rigging parts, plus the digital guage.

I am in Monmouth County NJ. My hull is in good shape. It would just be switching out the old Merc 250 for the new Suzuki. I was actually thinking of going with a Yamaha F250 mechanical first, but I have heard a lot of good things about the Suzuki 300 so I am leaning that way. Add on the wait time for a new Yamaha and Suzuki looks even better

That was the first quote I got from the closest dealer to me. I have three other dealers to talk to.

Check out Tuckerton Marine for Suzuki pricing. Last time I checked their pricing seemed pretty fair. Full disclosure, I have not done business with them.

Yes Tuckerton is on my list. I'm pretty sure they will be at the AC show at the end of February.
