What’s the most popular used outboard for sale?

Well it has to be yamaha outboards, everybody wants a yam. But of all the yamaha outboards for sale which is the most popular? I think the most occurring request we get at bill higham marine is for a 50hp yamaha 4 stroke. They are very well sought after, even more so than the mariner outboards favorite - the 60hp bigfoot, or tohatsu outboards 50TLDI. All of these are good engines and when looked after carefully will give years of great service. We have around 300 outboards for sale at any one time, and in a season we manage to sell around 500 - 800 units both new and used outboards together. If we could get our hands on more good quality used engines of between 2 and 8 years old we would be millionaires by now!
But as it is, we have to make do with what we can get, this season we have noticed that there are a lot of used outboard engines on the market and this has dulled our normal sales advantage, we always buy up lots of outboard motors in the winter when the prices are down a little (and we have time to repair and service them all), and then when nobody has any used engines to sell in the summer we still have stocks. This year we still have stocks now in September!! What will 2012 bring? I can’t wait to find out.
Happy boating
