How Much Do Outboard Motors Cost?

Outboard motors can range from $110 to nearly $90,000 depending on power, make, model, and other factors.

Your specific needs will help you to decide what size and power motor you need, and from there, you can begin comparing brands in that range of power, with various options like electric starting, manual or power tilt, electronic fuel injection, etc.

Here are some things to consider:

How will you use your outboard?

Weekend boaters looking for something to power their fishing boat or to ride around a lake or river every now and then may not need as much power or a top-of-the-line model as a cabin cruiser or someone running a charter service with a lot of hours of usage. This will impact outboard motors cost if you don’t need to spend top dollar but are looking for good value.

What are your power needs?

If you have a small jon boat or skiff, you probably don’t need an outboard motor with a lot of horsepower. Knowing what kind of boat you need the outboard for, how you use your boat, and where you use your boat (salt vs. freshwater) will help determine power and other specifications you’ll need to consider when doing a price comparison.

What options do you need or want?

Today’s outboards have many options you can select from to make the most of your time on the water, to increase your boating enjoyment. Manual or electric options, 2- or 4-stroke engines, fuel delivery, and more.


Are you looking for a top-of-the-line, newest model or do you just need something that works—doesn’t matter if it’s a year old or 30 years old? Age is another factor that can impact outboard motor cost.
