Find a Second-Hand 4-Stroke Outboard Boat Motor for Sale in Australia
Whether you want to replace your boat engine with a newer, more energy-efficient model or purchase a second-hand motor for your inflatable vessel, you needn’t look any further than Wynnum Marine. We stock a broad range of brand-new and second-hand Yamaha 2- and 4-stroke motors, and our 4-stroke solutions are among our most highly sought-after products for the reasons detailed below.
The Benefits of a 4-Stroke Boat Motor
Compared to 2-stroke engines, a 4-stroke boat motor is advantageous for the following reasons:
- Lower operating costs:
On average, a 4-stroke outboard motor is around 50% more fuel-efficient than a standard 2-stroke alternative. You might have to spend a few more dollars on a 4-stroke solution, but the savings you’ll make on fuel will make it a worthwhile investment in the long run.
Moreover, you don’t need to mix petrol and oil to refuel a 4-stroke motor, bringing your operating costs down even further. If you want to shave a few hundred dollars off the initial purchase price, we recommend browsing our selection of second-hand models. You can be confident that all our used engines are of the highest quality.
- Longer lifespan: A 2-stroke motor relies on air or gas to carry a thin layer of oil to its critical components, whereas a 4-stroke engine bathes all internal parts in oil to keep them continuously lubricated. As a result, 4-stroke solutions are less susceptible to damage than 2-stroke alternatives, meaning they have a longer life expectancy. We should note that – in most cases – it’s less complicated to repair a 2-stroke engine. However, over the long term, you’ll likely save money by opting for one of our high-grade Yamaha 4-stroke solutions. Again, if you’re shopping on a budget, you should peruse our offering of second-hand 4-stroke outboards.
- More environmentally friendly: 4-stroke engines can be up to 90% cleaner than 2-stroke motors. Plus, 4-stroke solutions don’t release oil directly into the water. All our Yamaha outboards are energy-efficient and boast ultra-low emissions. If you want to protect our air quality, prevent sea pollution and stave off the effects of global warming, you should consider investing in a 4-stroke outboard instead of a 2-stroke alternative. If you have any questions about the eco-friendliness of our second-hand solutions, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
- Better operating experience: In addition to being more durable, cleaner and more efficient than 2-stroke motors, 4-stroke outboards are also quieter – by up to 50%, depending on the model you choose. Additionally, 4-stroke engines release less smoke and fumes than 2-stroke motors, making your time on the water more relaxing. If an enjoyable sailing experience is your top priority, you can call our professionals for product recommendations and advice.
