Looking at the Tohatsu 3.5hp outboards at the link, that's actually the price I expected would be the norm in America.
The price in Rip-Off Britain is usually the same number in £, as prices in America are in $.
I would say anybody more expensive in America, would be the ones that are 'unreal'.
Prices of inflatables (and liferafts) in America are 'unreal' too.
The four person Offshore
(one of the best, always either top or 2nd in tests) here, full retail is £699 (a touch over $1,000 equivalent). A good safety
check when due, can be had for £100 (about $150 equivalent).
I don't know what has gone wrong in America, but something is seriously amiss.
I was going to buy new outboard, inflatable
, and a liferaft
when I was in America, but I am going to buy them when I am back here now.
The only way to win that game
, is not to play.
PS Bear in mind prices here are cheaper, despite import
duty and 20% VAT on top (plus business overheads are generally higher too).
PS Anybody cruising near to check them out?
