What Size or Type?
Outboard engines mainly come as two or four stroke models and within these options the engines can be operated on the outboard even with electric start or away from the outboard up at the helm known as a remote control box model. More information can be found in our section “useful information”.
The shaft length of the outboard is extremely important for boat performance and there are three main shaft length that you will need to know when selecting the correct outboard for the job. These are short shaft (or standard shaft), long shaft and extra long shaft and to get the correct length you will need to measure your boat transom. 15 inches is short shaft, 20 inches long and 25 inches extra long shaft. Alternatively you can call us with the age, model and serial number.
How many horse power you require?
This can be obtained from contacting the boat manufacturer or perhaps contacting some other owners of the same make of boat. Alternatively give us a call and test our knowledge.
Unfortunately all outboard motors will fail at some time and if you are boating on a canal you will find it an irritation. If however you are in the sea, a second outboard engine could be a life saver hence we also provide a full range of auxiliary engines.
Auxiliary engines are small engines that are only designed to be used in an emergency and to get you boat back to the closest safe shore and are there to get you to safety. The size required will be normally less than 10Hp with an average of around 3.5-6hp and should be capable of pushing your boat at 1-5mph regardless of the direction of the current. Most auxiliary engines will need to be long shaft models.
