Default WTB Revised- Pair 225-250 OPTI/HPDI motors

Looking to buy a pair of 25" counter rotating Mercury 250XS or 225 Opti. Prefer 2002-2005 year models. Amount of warranty remaining will be a significant decision factor. If 250XS, motors must have the new Fleet Master lower units. Please include approximate engine and lower unit hours and over all condition to be confirmed prior to closing transaction. Prefer Mercury only because of mechanic but will also consider Yamaha. Funds ready for immediate purchase as a previous deal fell through. Looking for offers.

My dealer in DE generally has a huge inventory of Mercs. You may be able to get a deal on some leftovers or rebuilds if they have them. Worth a shot. (I imagine shipping may cost you your savings though)

There is an outfit out of Houston Texas that sells new motors (not re-built) from 2003-2006. The prices vary but you can get them between $8k and $10k. Here is a shortcut to their site...

Just look under the motors and you will see. They had the best prices by far... better than Ed's.

Thanks for the link shep. At first glance, those are some decent prices. The devil is in the details though. I can't believe how fast prices depreciate. Oh well, I will see what they have to say.
