Most people realize that making a boat purchase is a big decision. You need to consider your reasons for wanting a boat in the first place and how you intend to use it. That will very much determine the type of boat you will get and whether you’ll need an inboard or outboard motor.
There are pros and cons to each type of motor and at Marine Service Center we’re here to help you navigate your way to the purchase that is right for you. If you discover you’re interested in looking at North Myrtle Beach outboard boat motors you’ll find yourself right at home in our showroom where we stock many new and used North Myrtle Beach outboard boat motors.
There are many advantages to outboard motors such as they’re cheaper to purchase, easier to haul, and easier to service both your self or from our own service department. You’ll most find these on fishing boats. You’re able to drop the motor off at our shop and leave it there without having to trailer the entire boat to us. Outboard motors weigh less and with the fuel system being external there’s no diesel fumes inside the boat.
Inboard/outboard motors, on the other hand, have their advantages, too. They’re more secure, you don’t have to worry about your motor falling off the back of the boat and these motors can’t be stolen. Boats with I/O motors are more for recreational boats where the engine won’t be in the way. They’re easier to back up and you can fit into tight spaces easier once you have it down with lots of practice. Boats with I/O motors can navigate shallower waters and they just overall last longer.
