Outboard brand question for 115hp


Post by minnlud » Wed Oct 18, 2017 9:04 pm

Hi, I'm having an 18' CC welded using a Specmar Orca plan. The builder priced the package with a Merc 115hp but says it's up to me to choose the brand I prefer. I've had one good experience and one bad experience running Mercs. Are particular brands more reliable in the 115hp category than others? Is there a "consumers reports" for outboards? The local dealers are Merc, Yamaha, and Honda. Thanks!

They are all good engines, I'd go out and check the dealer service departments and see who has their act together
