I purchased this new Yamaha 2.5hp four-stroke, 15” shaft outboard last year and haven’t yet had it on a boat or even gone through the break-in period, but since it’ll be quite awhile before I finish building the 14’ sailboat it’ll go on, I’ve decided to let the motor go to someone with a more immediate need.
I’ve test-run the engine twice, and of course it runs great. List price for the model (F2.5SMHB) is $1,145, and at the moment they appear to be backordered due to shipping backlogs. I’m willing to let the motor go to a fellow Pocket Yachter for only $850 cash, since we’re about to cast off for a summer of cruising aboard our old liveaboard motorsailer.

If you’d like to see the motor or buy it, email me right away since we’re hoping to leave in the next week.
The Yamaha is at my boatshop on Marrowstone Island, not far from Port Hadlock.
