Bargain Marine Store

Brand New Outboards Motors,Motorcycles,ATV,UTV,Snowmobiles,Jet Ski,Boats

Is this legit?
i was searching for an outboard motor and this place popped up offering the motor for almost half of what I see elsewhere, then I see it has 'free' overseas shipping.

Anyone us this website or trust it?

Consider the source.

Re: Bargain Marine Store

There are a number of sites offering new outboards at questionably low prices. All of them operating out of Asia. They have good websites and respond to you in perfect English with valid sounding facts and offers. They answer questions well and really seem to be legit.

They are all a scam. I just shopped for a new outboard and had experiences with a couple of these companies. A search around the internet came up with a lot of people who have been ripped off, and not a single instance of anyone who actually received an outboard engine.
