Posts: 94 opinions? also DBA Cumberland Watersports and seemingly based out of Tennessee have a good price on the outboard I want, with free shipping. I've read various claims that the outfit is a scammer, and just as many really good reviews, although no recent ones. I suspect they may be being confused with another (offshore) vendor with a similar domain name, resulting in the poor reviews.

Has anyone bought from Cumberland Watersports recently? How was the experience?


If it sounds dumb in your head, it sounds even dumber out loud!

Re: opinions?

I bought a 2015 mercury 4 stroke from them with the high thrust gearbox for my bristol 27. Delivered to my in laws house no problems. Engine ran great and still on the boat with the new owner.

No issues with them and when I'm buying a new outboard, I'll be buying from them. I definitely wasnt scammed

Pretty sure that is where I got mine too, but as nuts as this sounds, try the Porta-boat people, they sell motors too, and at a very good price, free shipping etc.

They may be only Suzuki though

Re: opinions?

Bought a Suzuki 2.5 outboard for the dinghy from them last spring. I received it 5 days after I ordered it. Had a question for them regarding the setup that I sent through their website. They got back to me within 90 minutes. Outboard ran flawlessly all season, not one issue.

I would definitely buy from them again.

Re: opinions?

I've purchased twice (#&*$@ thieves) in the last year. Because my mailing address is different than my shipping address it set off their fraud warning. Quickly got in touch with me and then processed the order. The second time because I was shipping it to my work address they called again as it was different than the first time, but they remembered me from the first time. Everything arrived promptly and was a great transaction.
