2002 Mercury Optimax 225's, one counter, one standard, have new sets of decals, 30 inch shafts (can change to 25''), 19 mirage plus props available, Warranty till August 22, 2007, engines are late model 02's and were commisioned on August 22, 2003
700 hours now(mostly idle), no issues, run great, always maintained, I am selling b/c i want to rig with the new 300 opti's

I ran the boat last week to take a pic of them running, the boat ran 47.6 knots in the Gulf, I snapped a pic of the gps, but it was only reading 45.6 knots at the time

Available for sea trial, (not for long, 300's will be here soon)

I haven't sea trialed the 300's yet, but i have heard they are strong, burn 24 gph at wot, somewhere between the noise of verado and 225 opti, them being stroked will help with the hole shot on bigger boats with twins

reduced $11,000 for the pair, they run great, and they still have over 1 year left under factory warranty.

I am itching for the 300's

Not to derail your thread but where did you get the new decals? I couldn't find any.

Thanks

the decals came from mercury at a steep price

The spacers are included and if you want to make them 25's you just remove them and replace the shaft, my price did does not include changing the shaft on the lower units,

Do you have the 25" shafts avail or will I have to find them?
Would you sell a single motor?

captbone, I am supposed to get my 300 xs optis around mid January, and I am willing to separate them once my new engines are installed.


otterbanx, I do not have the 25'' prop shafts for the swaps, the swap would be at the buyers expense, I have heard that the 30'' shafts can be machined to 25's as well

I was the potential buyer (below) but unfortunately have had to back out on the deal. FYI on the shafts it is a pretty straightforward process to convert to 25"s (new or machined driveshaft) but easier is to spend $125 on a jack plate extention kit, which will let you mount them 5" higher on the transom and keep the powerheads that much farther away from the salt.

Chris seems like a stand up guy and these are a bargain for the price - but not quite for me right now. Somebody buy 'em before I change my mind again.

I have a fresh set of dual mercury controls with cables and harnesses for someone who needs them for these motors. They came out of a 2006 Mako. Email me for info. at kngfshnc@yahoo.com. These motors are a steal. Good luck on the sale
