Honda Outboard Prices

16 posts in this topic

I don't know what it is about googleing boat and motor prices but I always seem to end up with a bunch of sites that I can't make heads or tails of. Does anyone know what a new 25hp Honda goes for? I'm guessing around $4000

I see what you mean gunflint. When I tried doing some searching for you, I gave up in frustration. You will probably have to contact your nearest Honda dealer, which is Beaver Bay Sports in Beaver Bay. I think your guess of $4,000.00 is pretty close. Good luck! grin.gif1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Hey Gunflint. Last Oct. I purchased a boat package. I put a Honda 30hp with t/trim on the boat and the agreement shows a price of $4300. Longshaft electric start. Of coarse I usually take it in the shorts, as I'm not a very agressive wheeler/dealer. grin.gif The motor is on '06. Hope this helps. Junky.....

That does help. Sounds like you got a pretty sweet deal. Are you happy with the Honda?

I had a huge smile on my face the whole 1.5 hrs that I got on it. Then winterized it and put it to sleep for the winter. It is the same size and dimensions as the 25hp by the way. wink.gif Aperently the saleman sold me the 30hp for the same price as a 25hp. Nice guy. grin.gif I wouldn't be with a motor without trim/tilt, worth the extra money to me to have. It has a nice little roar/grumble to it too. grin.gif The tiller handle is really nice too. If you leave me your email, I'll send ya some pics of it that I took before storage. I have been a yammy guy for years and traded in my yammy 25hp fourstroke ptt. I think I'm gonna like this one better. Let me know about the pics if your interested Mark. Junky......

What a nice rig. In case you didn't know, my specialty is helping anglers (such as yourself) break-in their new rigs during the uncomfortable break-in period. Let me know if you would like some help in this area. cool.gif

Why would anyone want a new honda, yamaha, Merc, etc? From what I can see an E-Tec is the only way to go for new motors.

I wouldn't mind a E-Tech at all, but they only go down to 40 hp. A motor that big would cause all the wildlife in the BDUB to die from global warming. smirk.gif

Guess it's true you learn something everyday. I have never seen the need to get a smaller motor/kicker. The 90 horse and a drift sock get me down to the speeds I need if it's that windy. My trolling motor works under any other conditions.

While you are at it, price out a jack plate lift for the 25. Last June I was up in Alaska and our guide had one. He had a 20 foot aluminum Willy boat (about the same size as a 20 foot Lund Alaskan) Using the jack lift really increased the speed on that unit.

That sounds very interesting. Looks like I'll be doing some searching tonight, thanks.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
