Here at Van's Sport Center, our used outboard collection is at an all-time high. We've got about 150 used motors that are ready to find their new homes. There are a few things to consider when you are in the market to buy a used outboard. Consider where do you go to find one? How old is too old? 2-stroke or 4-stroke? Tiller steering or remote steering? What's your maximum horsepower size? What does your budget look like? Do you have a control box already mounted on the boat from the previous motor? Is it a good working motor? Is it in the condition you were hoping for? I'll walk you through a few basic things to think about before you're tempted to grab the best deal.
