For customers who do not need to see a motor in person before buying, eBay is a good source for used jet outboards. Buyers must research the seller's reputation and rely on the description and photos of each jet outboard to determine its quality. Each motor on the site is available for instant purchase and/or auction. Depending on the seller, buyers may need to pick up the motor or pay for shipping.
Boat dealerships often sell used jet outboards. Eberlin Boats and Motors in Hermann, Missouri, lists its used jet outboard motors on the company website. Other dealers require in-person visits to browse the stock. Some dealers, including Eberlin, offer a limited warranty with used motors. In most cases, a boat dealership is a safe place to buy a used motor.
Boat owners occasionally sell their used jet outboards on classified websites such as Craigslist. Ads vary in length and descriptiveness, so buyers may need to contact the seller for more information. Craigslist allows in-person transactions, enabling buyers to inspect the motor and assess its quality before buying.Learn more about Vehicles
