where to purchase ob motor (online??)

Hi,

I just bought 1989 Catalina 25'. It was suggested to me by a few people to get at least a 10hp, (better to be 15hp) 25" shaft ob. Where can I order online and hope for it to be less expensive than at a dealer?

Thanks,

Jim

Modern 10 Hp motors are really heavy and older motor mounts many not be up to the job

search of internet outboard motor sales will give many picks

Not all brands allow the sale of lose motors and many require a dealer pre delivery inspection for warranty

ASK ABOUT SHIPMENT OF A HONDA POWERED INFLATABLE BOAT PACKAGE.
Defender can pair any inflatable boat it offers with an appropriately sized Honda motor and ship it to you. However, we do not ship loose motors. Loose motors must be picked up at our Outlet Store in Waterford, CT. (See below for more info)

Long drive

Tohatsu is the most liberal about lose motor sales and even they get fussy about electric start remote control units

onlineoutboards.com worked for our Tohatsu long shaft. Electric start outboards are available, also. The price was inexpensive compared to the dealers.

Another vote for Defender.com

I think the Tohatsu 9.8 is a great little motor. Good notes about the new engines being much heavier (ie 4 strokes) so checking the capacity of the mount would be a good idea

Here is a great deal on last years model 9.8HP w/ 25" shaft 9.8 HP 4-Stroke

I believe Tohatsu has a new motor out designed just for sailboat applications?

I bought an 8hp Tohatsu from online outboards. It was a long shaft with electric start and have been very pleased with it. It was the cheapest I could find even with shipping. It was also the lightest of all the other brands.

I found that Bass Pro Shops has awesome deals on motors. They sell the Mercury line. Deals are better then most dealers because the quantities they sell are huge. I bought my 3.5hp motor there and it was over 200 cheaper then others.

I would think anything over 10HP bigger than you need. Aside from the expense, the extra weight will cause your stern to squat, to no particular benefit. Perhaps other C25 owners can comment.
