  ***A word about small hp motors.***

Motors below 25hp are not sold in-season because the time to repair them to a level I feel is satisfactory for reliable service, and the relatively low resale value makes it prohibitive for me to continue offering them during the peak busy season (March-September).  I do stock parts and offer full repair services for small motors throughout the year. 

As of 5/21, I am no longer selling motors below 9.9hp dating prior to 1980.  Pricing listed below is for small, and older motors if available.  There's nothing wrong with buying a motor produced in the 1950's, 1960's, or 1970's so long as it is in good condition.  Small motor orders are fulfilled in the off-season (October-February).



Back to 25hp and up motors



6-8hp motors offer more power than their smaller counterparts and can plane out small 12-14' aluminum boats, and are ideal for Jon/flat bottom boats.  They offer full gear shift and most include thermostatically controlled cooling.  Produced 1966-2006.   

Here is a video I captured from The History Channel's "Modern Marvels," featuring a 1967 6hp Evinrude Fisherman on a kit boat, moving right along at 20mph!  Looks like a lot of fun.  Runner Outboards supplies these light weight 2-strokes to several mini-racer customers each year, just usually not this small of a HP!

9.5hp motors have a religious following, keep running, & are extremely popular.  They are the first compact outboard offering robust features with power in a small package, and the 2nd generation of this motor class, revised from the older 10hp motors produced up to 1963.  They were made specifically for fishermen & have been dubbed "turtle motors," amongst other regional slang terms.  Produced 1964-1973.  back to top

Test running a 15hp motor for a customer late winter, still ice/snow out on the water.  No motor cover because it was a remote setup that I installed a tiller on just for load testing.  Hit 22MPH with just me in the boat, a 12.5 pitch prop, and a 1/2 tank of gas.  Really fast!

9.9/15 HP motors are very popular for all 8-16 foot aluminum, jon boat, and mooring holders.  They are the 3rd generation of 9.5/10hp motors (originating in the 50's) and offer numerous upgrades.  The same base model was produced from 1974-2006.  back to top

Note:  I have found that the powerhead in these motors manufactured after 1993 were not as durable as the original design made for 20 years between 1974-1993, therefore I have discontinued selling them unless I have a nice original condition one.

Special configurations are available for additional costs (please call to order).

Here's a video from a customer filmed on a GoPro camera. It was a small restored wood boat and the motor pushed the boat along very quickly!

18-25hp motors (prior to 1977) offer a bridge from trolling motors and transport vessels to water bodies with strong currents, winds, and larger vessels such as 14-18' boats and pontoons.  They are also commonly used as kicker motors for large, heavy boats.  They are very popular amongst small aluminum boaters who want speed but are concerned about weight.  A light aluminum boat can reach speeds as fast as 30-35mph (depending on load and configuration).  Historically, 25hp motors have been used for mini-racers (1-man, stubby boats under 8' in length).  They also offer the provision of electric start and steering control.  The 18, 20, & 25hp motors were all based off the original 18hp motor design of 1958.  The 20 & 25hp models are enhanced versions.  back to top
