As with general boat maintenance - it's highly recommended that you regularly maintain your marine engine in order to keep any expensive repair bills to a minimum. Whether this is by changing your marine oil and spark plugs when required, or replacing your control cables

Outboard Motors:

We stock a leading range of outboard motors, both petrol and electric. Mariner outboard engines are the marine engine of choice for the RNLI, owing to their exceptional reliability and performance. Our most popular mariner outboard is the 4-Stroke 3.5hp Short Shaft Outboard Engine, but we can supply outboards up to 9.9hp.

Cars with electric motors have rapidly risen in popularity over the past decade, and it's the same in the marine industry too. Electric outboard motors are more popular than ever before, and with brands like ePropulsion Outboard Motors producing superb engines such as the ePropulsion Spirit 1.0 1kW (3hp) Electric Outboard Motor, it's not hard to see why.

The electric outboard weighs just 20kg (including the battery), with a single charge providing a maximum range of 22 miles. As the outboard motor is so lightweight, it's super-easy to transport. 

There's also the option to upgrade to the Spirit Evo model. Spirit Evo features a world first - hydrogeneration. This enables the ePropulsion motor to charge its own battery when wind is being used to propel the inflatable dinghy or boat. Water spins the propeller which in turn spins the motor, putting electricity back into the battery, so you can get more range out of a single charge.

If you're looking to combine an outboard motor with an inflatable dinghy, we highly recommend checking out our excellent range of Inflatable Dinghies & Outboard Motor Packages as there are great savings to be made when you purchase a dinghy and engine together.

For those who love their fishing, we stock an excellent range of trolling motors, including the hugely popular range of Minn Kota Trolling Motors. These motors offer quiet, efficient operation which is important when fishing in calm waters.

Marine Oils:

Marine engine oils, also known as boat engine oils or marine lubricants, are specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of marine engines and their operating conditions. These oils play a crucial role in lubricating, cooling, and protecting the internal components of marine engines, ensuring their smooth and efficient operation.

Marine engines, whether used in recreational boats, commercial vessels, or other marine applications, operate in demanding environments that can pose challenges to the engine's performance and durability. Factors such as high operating temperatures, heavy loads, prolonged idling, water exposure, and high levels of humidity and saltwater can all impact the engine's efficiency and longevity.

Volvo & Yanmar Engine Parts:

We stock an excellent range of Volvo & Yanmar Engine Parts for your marine engine.  From oil filters to fuel filters, to alternator belts - whether you require a Genuine Volvo Part or Alternative Volvo Part, we'll have it in stock; and if we don't, we'll be able to source it for you. We also supply a wide range of Yanmar Engine Parts too.
