WTB - 150 to 250hp Four Stroke

 Im in the process of rebuilding an old fibreglass boat (Regent Viscount) and will need to get my hands on a motor by about June.

Im chasing a 4 stroke outboard between 150hp and 250hp. Age is not an issue but Im trying to keep the hours under the 1500hr mark. If anyone is looking to trade their old motor in (or you know of someone that is) and its in good condition, I'd be happy to match or beat the trade in price you've been offered...within reason. As the boat is quite old I dont want to over capitalise.

I appreciate that they can be hard to find so I thought I'd start looking now. 

Either PM or contact me on 0438857955 if you know of anything that would suit.

Cheers.

Brad

PS: Once the rebuild is complete I will post a thread on main board showing how it all went...subject to its success of course.

Cheers Zoom, but that one is pick up only and a little high in the price range. Might sound picky but i am trying to keep it around the $10k mark for budget purposes. Damn good deal though for someone with a few more $$$ than I have.

No probs Bradz. Gotta work with your budget - I know how that goes!

Don't let 'pick up only' or interstate deals put you off. Freight isn't too bad and a phone call to a local dealer can usually end up with them picking it up for you and getting it ready for your courier for a nominal fee.
