Mercury Optimax 300XS Outboard For Sale

The engine is a 2008 model 20in shaft.

Was bought originally as a spare for RB08 and sat unused on a pallet until I purchased and rigged it onto our RingCat in mid 2013.

Now has 24.8 hrs on the clocks.

Carefully run in last season as per Merc break-in cycle and only ever run on expensive recommended Merc 2-stroke oil.

1.62 Sports Master lower unit with a fat shaft.

Comes complete with remote oil tank, red Optimax multifunction tacho and speedo, additional analogue Smartcraft gauges for fuel level, trim level and water pressure, all wiring looms, ignition switch etc. (no throttle or gear controls - see below)

New impellor and gear oil in May this year, probably done 5hrs max since.

No prop but this could be purchased separately depending on what you need.

Various other items such as a hydraulic Gorilla III lifter, Salmon gear control, in-control foot throttle etc can be included as a package if needed but I will not sell any of this separately until the engine goes so please don't ask.

Still fully rigged on the boat and can be seen running in a bucket prior to removal.

I can probably find a shipping cradle if needed or you're welcome to bolt it straight onto the back of your boat as we have access to a lifting gantry.

Worldwide shipping can be arranged at extra cost.

Located 10 mins from Jn 8/9 of the M27 just outside Warsash village.

Asking £11,000

Pics to follow

24.8 is not much for an engine from 2008

it means it only ran one full day in 4 years ???

Hi,

As it says in the advert, it was bought as a spare for Round Britain in 2008 and therefore sat on a shipping cradle unused until I bought it in 2013 to go on my Cat.

Roughly 20hrs in the first season and then another 5 this year.

Unfortunately work has got in the way of me using it as much as I'd like to!

James
