This article presents a table of specifications for outboard engines currently (c.2002) in production and available for sale in the United States in the horsepower range of approximately 70 to 125 HP. Engines of this size are popular for use in repowering Boston Whaler boats in two areas of application. For single-engine power, these engines are suitable for the 15, 16, and 17 foot hulls, i.e., hulls rated for a maximum horsepower of 70-125 HP. For dual power, these engines are suitable for hulls in the 18-23 foot range, i.e., hulls rated for a maximum of 200-250 HP.
A separate article lists higher power engines in the 130-250-HP range.
The table presents engines organized by manufacturer and by design. Classic 2-stroke designs are listed first, followed by low-emission 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines. Specifications and pricing are as listed in recent magazines or catalogues. Prices represent the "base" price, but it is not known if the prices are exactly comparable. In some cases there may be additional charges for necessary accessories like propellers, gauges, and remote controls. It is best to get a precise quotation from a dealer as to exactly what is included in any engine "package." The number of cylinders is noted, as is the block layout. Unless denoted by a "V" all engines are in-line cylinder design. Displacement is given in cubic-inches. Weight is the dry weight in pounds.
