Default 4 - 2006 250 xs Opti's, priced to sell, NEW PICS ADDED, will separate

I have 4 2006 250 xs opti's with 260 hours,
these 250 xs's run on 87 octane

All engines have the fat shaft heavy duty sportmaster gearcases

20" SM RH 250 xs
20" SM LH 250 xs

25" SM RH 250 xs
25" SM LH 250 xs

I prefer to sell them in pairs for $18,500, or all 4 for 36K

The 20" sportmasters will run on most boats that require 20 or 25" shaft lengths,
and the 25" sportmasters will run on most boats that require 25 or 30" shaft lengths

The sportmaster gearcases are the strongest gearcases made by Mercury,

The engines are outstanding; the only reason I am selling them is to get new 300 xs's

Sea trial available

Chris.

As of 2006 the 250 xs's run on 87 octane, but the 300's still need 91 octane

This is a great price, I just checked the nada value and it is between 12-13.5K per engine

Propbender,
What kind of warranty is left or did they only have the 1 year.

Sorry, the warranty ended on December 5, 2007.
These engines have seen very little tournament use b/c this boat was sold right after the 2006 250's were mounted.

Most of the hours are at idle or cruising at 3800-4500 rpm.

The sale of the engines includes the trim pumps and hoses, and they have the offshore midsections

I just changed the gear oil and all of the seals were good to go, . The engines also performed flawlessly last weekend for an overnight tuna trip.
I have a deposit on the 300's now, and I need to move these soon.

As mentioned above the lower covers were professionally cut by Mercury Racing. There is no water intrusion issue with this, and 99 % of the people out there would not notice any difference when mounted. I had a pair on my twin 34 with the lower cans cut, and it was not very noticable. I will try to find some pics

I will now separate the engines however you like. I will sell them for 9k a piece, but if you would like a single and you want the right hand rotation before I have sold the counter, the price is $9500

Here is a link to the pics of what the engines will look like with the lower cans cut if they are mounted without the wing plate

if the link doesn't work, you can download the pics below
