Anyone who is planning to buy an outboard motor for their dingy or boat needs to consider a variety of factors. For starters, they need to choose between an electric motor and a gasoline outboard. Electric outboards are much cheaper to run as they draw power from a battery, which can be solar-charged. They also make less noise and have lower maintenance costs. Obviously, there are different types of electric outboards. There are those with high power outputs as well as others that require a high dc voltage input. Whatever the case, be sure to compare all the available electric outboards before making a decision.
Obviously, prices will differ from one electric outboard to the next. Therefore, you have to compare the prices quoted by different suppliers for the different type of motors. You can decide to purchase a new or used motor depending on your financial needs.
