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.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
