I may be wrong and I apologise if I am but it looks a bit dodgy to me.

Prices of some of the engines look a bit to good to be true.
Pics. of the boats are taken all over the place i.e UK, USA.
UK address does not look right.

I would be very careful, but if I am wrong let me know I wouldn't mind an engine at those prices.

check out the terms, you may end up spending a lot more than you think!
prices dont include shipping or taxes.......
i spent 3 weeks in the states in november on holiday with the hope of bring'n home a bargin or two but with the present extange rate and the cost of shipping it wasn't worth it.
add to this, the fact that you dont know what your getting untill your money has gone!!

This website has been floating around for ages, i have know it to be called 3 different names. Each time they change the uk address. they always seem to use old companys that are in liquidation.

There is a phonenumber on the website.

This is too cheap to be true. If his would be 100% honest/good deals I would go to there and buy all those engines

Gentlemen, use somebody over here to do the deal on your behalf then they can be shipped to you...

If its such a good deal you wont mind paying a few% for the comfort of having an agent acting on your behalf

There is a fax number starting with 07006 - what sort of a number is that?

I must be blind as I can't see the phone number on the contacts page?

Anyway sounds like a scam to me!
