By trading in your old outboard we might be able to knock a few hundred dollars off the price of a new Torqeedo. My buddy Malcolm who helps out around here when I’m out of town may be able to buy your old outboard. He has been able to help a few folks in this way by taking an old outboard off their hands, giving it a spruce up and then finding a new home for it.
Lets face it, one of the annoying things about upgrading is getting rid of the old one—it can be inconvenient going through the process of advertising, taking calls, and dealing with tyre kickers, and just having to be available when you’d rather be out sailing.
Anyway, we figured it might be helpful to offer this formally as a trade-in service for our customers. If you do want to take advantage of this offer just fill out our trade evaluation form right here and we’ll get back to you with a price. Or just ask about trade-ins as part of your Torqeedo package.
We are mainly interested in trading small ‘ portable’ outboards for use on tenders – these are usually 2hp to 5hp . Motors we commonly find are 2 stroke Mercury/Mariner/Tohatsu models with the controls on the front of the engine. Also Yamaha 2hp and 3 hp are popular. We’ll also look at other models as they come up.
If you want to trade in your motor – it has to have some value! Seized or submerged motors are worth very little but we can offer a fair trade in on motors that turn over ok even though they may not start . They will go through our workshop for checking and minor repairs before re sale – which is reflected in the trade in price.
