Mariner Outboards

Mariner Outboard Boat Engines

Since they were first launched nearly 50 years ago, Mariner Outboard Engines have gained an exceptional reputation for reliability and performance, which is why they are the outboard engine of choice for the RNLI. Our range of four-stroke engines are incredibly efficient and offer exceptional fuel economy, resulting in lower operating costs.

Our most popular outboard engine is Mariner's 4 Stroke 3.5hp Short Shaft Outboard Engine. This is one of the lightest engines in its class and has plenty of torque to get you zipping around on your inflatable dinghy. Another hugely popular engine is Mariner's 6hp Outboard. This outboard engine uses the same 25kg chassis as the 4hp and 5hp outboard engines, so offers an exceptional power to weight ratio.

Mariner short shaft outboards suitable for dinghies with a transom height of 15 to 17 inches, whilst Mariner long shaft outboard engines are more suited to dinghies.

Mariner Outboard Engine Packages

The majority of the mariner outboard engines we sell are sold with inflatable boats. Our superb selection of dinghy & outboard motor packages are tailored to the specification of each Mariner outboard engine, with our most popular package the Seago Go Lite 230 2.3m Inflatable Dinghy with Mariner 3.5hp Outboard Engine. As well as Seago, we also stock inflatable boat with motor packages from brands including 3D Tender and Talamex!

If you're considering switching to an electric outboard engine, we also sell dinghy & electric outboard motor packages too.

We're frequently asked what size outboard engine is suitable for an inflatable dinghy. Often, this answer is tailored to your individual requirements as it ultimately depends on where you will be using the dinghy, and how many people will be with you.

For example, if you're using a Seago Go Lite 250 Inflatable Dinghy on your own in non-tidal waters, a 3.5hp Outboard Engine will be suffice - however, if there's two-three people on board, and you will be using the dinghy in tidal waters, you may want to opt for a 5hp outboard engine, or even a 6hp outboard.
