Timeframe for Outboard Boat Motors for Sale in Palm Beach County

The pandemic has seemingly affected everything–from our daily work lives to the time it takes to get an outboard boat motors for sale in Palm Beach County. Here in Palm Beach County, we’re still seeing significant delays in ordering outboard boat motors. Here’s a look at what we’ve got for sale and how long you can expect to wait to get your engine. 

What is the Timeframe? Outboard Boat Motors in Palm Beach County

As you’re probably aware, Palm Beach County suppliers haven’t been immune to the supply chain problems and product backlogs experienced in many industries. Outboard boat motors have been especially hard hit, with delays stretching over a year in some cases. Here’s a look at the timeframe for delivery from our two most popular suppliers, Honda and Suzuki.

Honda Outboard Boat Motors

Honda sells incredible outboards, but they are so in demand globally that they are experiencing some of the worst backlogs, but fortunately only for specific models. 

Luckily, if you’re in the market for a portable motor (from their 2.3 to 20 horsepower models), you can expect a modest delay of only two months. The same goes for their high-power range, from 175 to 250 horsepower.

But most customers fall in the middle, where Honda’s delays are most prevalent. For engines ranging from 115 to 150 horsepower–Honda’s popular mid-range engines–, delays can be as much as 16 months.

Suzuki Outboard Boat Motors

Suzuki outboards are popular the world over for their reliability and stout designs. Suzuki has six lines of motors for sale, including the following models.

  1. Cargo Series for Commercial Users
  2. Portable: 2.5 – 20 hp
  3. In-Line 3-cylinder: 60 – 25 hp
  4. In-Line 4-cylinder: 70 – 200 hp
  5. V6: 200 – 300 hp
  6. V6 Flagship (GEKI Series): 300 – 350 hp

All Suzuki outboards have similar delays, regardless of the product line or horsepower. So expect to wait for 7 to 10 months for any of these outboard boat motors.

What Happened to All The Evinrude Dealers in Palm Beach County?

You might wonder what happened to Evinrude motors in all of this and what has become of all Evinrude dealers. 

ARG is still here to serve, but Evinrude has officially shut its doors. Evinrude discontinued its line of outboard boat motors back in 2020. Parent company BRP cited the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain problems as the primary cause. 

The good news, especially if you still own and operate one of these great legacy outboard boat motors, is that ARG still has parts for sale in Palm Beach County; call us at 561-840-1514
