    Anyone have any experience with this company. $13k for a Suzuki 250 seems low. Any idea if this is legit or are these cheap Chinese clone knockoffs? Had a rod let go on my boat Friday night so now I’m in the market for an outboard. 250-300hp 4 stroke.

    If it's too good to be true, it's too good to be true.

    I don't even like the name of that website. Seems like click bait attempts to trap people who type the Yamaha name incorrectly.

    Finding a deal in this market likely isn't possible. Hell, finding a motor in stock likely isn't possible. Hopefully you're able to get back on the water before 2022.

    Sounds like a legit web site.

    I did a WHOIS lookup on the registration. Its registered by someone using a Hong Kong registar and they hid their registration name. They are actually operating somewhere here in El Monte CA based on their IP address. I seriously doubt they are legit.

    SCAM SCAM SCAM. Before I re powered my boat I called Yamaha to ask about these cheap motor companies. They would not say they are a scam all they would say is Yamaha would not warranty any motor bought from them and the motors would not be legal here due to emissions requirements.

    Call your local yamaha dealer and ask them what the wait is for a new engine. They will most likely say next year depending on the size. Scammers know this.

    The "contact us" info links to a yahoo email. :D

    Thats what I picked up on. Shame that this lack of outboard availability brings out the cockroaches. Leaning toward ordering a reman'd powerhead since there are some around.
