Yes I bought it from a guy last year who had it from new on his rib but hardly used it! I had it on a phantom 16 last year and did 3 hours before selling the boat and getting my p21, it's now on my fishing boat but hasn't been out on it yet, rather have a smaller hp motor for fishing!
The hour meter is there saying 112 and you can tell by looking at the block it's in mint condition

260 is probably what you want that sort of price. Sold one to Paul Scott this year for 3K, he got a free P18 with it!!
Promax are great. Just blown mine up and priced up a new one but not cheap for a really good one. Lots more power than the 225 quoted and loads of torque. Fast motor.
