Best Place to Buy an Outboard in South Florida

It's time to upgrade to a larger outboard for our dingy. We are using a little 2 HP Honda on an 11' inflatable and it can be a bit slow.

Can anyone recommend any good outlets to buy a new or used outboard in South Florida?

I know I can walk into West Marine but I am looking for some other options.

Re: Best place to buy an outboard in South Florida?

I had a good experience with www.onlineoutboards.com
No tax and free truck delivery. I ordered on a Sunday night and was called on Tuesday to schedule the Wednesday delivery in Miami.
They sell Tohatsu who builds Nissan and Mercury up to 40 HP
I only had to add engine oil, check lower unit oil which is included and away I went!
I would use them again.
Good luck, there are other online dealers, but that is who I used.

Re: Best Place to Buy an Outboard in South Florida

I bought a Yamaha 4 HP on ebay from a Florida dealer.
Got lucky on the auction and came in at $950.00 brand new with a
3 year warranty and free delivery.
Happy with the engine, it will push the 310 airfloor with a 230 lbs guy at 11 knots. Previous 4 HP Evinrude only did 7.5 knots....
