We’re NZ’s outboard & inboard specialists.

If your first question is whether to go for an outboard motor or inboard option, you’re not alone. Did you know that some boaties choose the motor before the actual new boat? That’s because your inboard/outboard choice will ultimately determine which boat you’ll end up with.LEARN MORE

Mr. Boats is an authorised agent for Yamaha and Mercury outboard motors, as well as the MerCruiser (stern-drive) inboard motor range. Don’t know which to choose? No problem – our highly experienced sales team can talk you through the different options available that suit your lifestyle and boating experience.

For example, if you prefer skiing and boating in rivers and lakes, you may prefer an inboard or stern-drive motor like our MerCruiser Range. Inboard motors sit inside the boat and take up more space than an outboard motor but the result is a boat with a flatter hull, giving more stability on the water and less risk of damage in shallow waters.

An outboard motor, on the other hand, is often used by fishermen and blue-water boaties who prefer the inexpensive servicing that comes with most outboard motors due to their easy-access location. Another advantage is that most outboard motors are suited for boats with deep V-shaped hulls which provide more stability and ride comfort in rough water.

Every new Mercury and Yamaha outboard motor comes with a 3-plus-2-year warranty. This means that if you choose our 3-year service plan you’ll get a further 2-year warranty on your motor! We also sell used boat motors, so come in for a chat.
