The motors are still on the boat, which we will be fishing this upcoming week, We will be removing the motors afterwards and re-rigging. I am located in Atlantic Beach, FL, which is one of the Jacksonville Florida Beach Communities. Please feel free to call if you want to stop by and run them while they are still on the boat.

Regards,

Chris Lavelle

Hey Mark,

Yes, I have already purchased 3 Yamaha F225's, which are scheduled to be rigged after next weekend. I finally gave up on selling the boat and bit the bullet on repowering it. Seems no one wants a used 35' twin engine center console these days, even at 10K below value. Everyone looking at that type of boat wants trips. I may still sell the boat with the price adjusted accordingly next year, depending on things.

I would have loved to get your hydra, but couldn't make dollars work and still do the house re-modeling the wife wants. This way I stay married AND get to go fishing

Chris

Good choice of power I love mine. That boat should be a rocket w/ all those horses! Your opti's are priced right and should go quick! Good luck with the sale and good luck in the GJKFT!

Default RE: Reduced!: 2001 225 OptiMax Engines: Pair for $7000

Price has been reduced from $8,000 to $7,000 if bought before they are removed from the boat next week! I do not want to have these engines in my garage after they are removed! Both engines run great, will be fishing the boat this week with them. Heck, even if you only need one, by the other and store it for a backup. A single lower unit alone is worth $2,500!

Price goes back up to $8,000 for pair, $4.500 each after they are removed if I have to keep them in the garage!
