Zozza 261 Posted March 18, 2016 Share Posted March 18, 2016 Hi, As I am becoming increasingly a bit of a greenie, I am considering changing to an electric inboard motor, which would mean no need for the Beta 14hp that came with the yacht I recently purchased. So, I am putting the 'feelers' out there to see if anyone whom reads this board is interested in a top quality diesel engine. It's only had somewhere between 60-80 hours use, and I just had it serviced a couple weeks ago with no issues apart from routine maintenance stuff. The diesel was purchased new from 'The Engine Room' in 2010 (whom also did the service mentioned above) but not first used until 2011 when boat relaunched. All receipts available. These engines are $9500 incl. gst new and I'm wanting 65% of that - "that" being the engine and gear box for $6,000 and that is pretty much non-negotiable. If you can find a diesel of this Beta's quality and age at a cheaper price then good luck to you. I am not selling the shaft as would need it for my electric conversion if I do go ahead with that. The control panel could be negotiated too at a reasonable price compared to what you would have to pay new. Do note: All costs to remove engine would be for the purchaser to pay. The boat is currently on the hard at my place, so would have to figure out best way to lift it out. The engine weighs 90kg, Beta 14 brochure.pdf Quote Link to post Share on other sites
