Twin Optimax 150s - 2006 - 25" - approximately 450 hours

I am selling the twin Optimax 150s that are on my Outrage 25. The prior owner purchased them new and they had about 100 hours on them when I bought the boat in 2010 and now have about 450 hours. I am still using them currently but am going to repower the boat this winter. I've kept the boat on a trailer except for occasionally leaving it in the water a week at a time on a vacation.

Starboard motor - Optimax 150XL - 1B275781
Port motor - Optimax 150CXL - 1B275020
Price - $9,500 for both

You can see pictures of the motors at
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ggech7hbz...1mh6FqYZa?dl=0

Operationally the motors are excellent. I replaced the water pump impellers yearly and always ran Optimax oil. The hours I put on them are about 50% salt and 50% fresh, but the salt was in blocks of a week or two and I always rinsed off the motor under the cowling and ran them in the lake after each salt trip - they are very clean with no signs of corrosion. The inland mechanic who replaced the spark plugs earlier in 2017 thought they had only been used inland as they are so clean. I had the thermostats replaced earlier in 2017 also.

There are two minor cosmetic scrapes on the cowling on the port engine. The scrape on the back of the motor came when I got too close to a holly bush, and the scrape on the left edge happened when a shop had them off the boat for me to add the Hermco bracket. I did not try touching up either. I took pictures of each. I also have fitted motor covers for the engines which I kept on them when not using, and thus the paint on the motor cowling is in good condition.

Both of the onboard oil tanks have been replaced and are the newer style - the magnetic sensor in each failed, one in 2014 and one in 2017 - it is a common failure.

The hours are an estimate as the motors are still on the boat and I'm still using it. With a deposit I would be glad to let you run the motors on Smith Mountain Lake to test them out.

Includes:
2 external Optimax oil tanks and oil lines to motor (lines were new in 2016)
2 key switch assemblies and harness to motor
2 fitted motor covers
Miscellaneous spare motor parts (water pump parts, a solenoid, whatever I've gathered)

Does not include other controls or propellers.

I'm in Roanoke, Virginia (western Virginia). I would be willing to meet a purchaser with the boat with the motors still hanging on it but de-rigged to pull them off if you are within about a 5 hour drive.

I see your tow bracket. I did not know they made them for twins. What can you tell me about it?

It is a TurboSwing - we use it for watersports - pulling kneeboarders, skiers, tube, etc. We used to pull wakeboarders from it also but now pull them from the arch instead for more lift.

Works great - highly recommend. Had it about 6 years or so.

New price - $8000 for the pair.

I've ordered Fourstroke 150s that I will put on next month and want to get these sold and gone.

The Optimax are now pulled off and on the pallets that the 150 Fourstrokes came on and ready for shipment or transport.

I will split the pair.

Ready for your spring repowering project.

I also have high-rise jackplates if you want to run the twin 25" engines on a standard height Outrage transom. I'll include the jackplates at no extra cost if you purchase both motors.
