Hello. I have just purchase my first boat, 17ft cabin cruiser with a nice 50hp 4 stroke yamaha on the back. The interior needs some works but only as it is dated. Just wanted to say hello. Where is the best place to get service parts for the outboard from and antifoul?

Hi Rob,

I'm also in Plymouth, great cruising area!

Force4 at QAB always have a good choice of antifoul.
Promarine (Also at QAB) have served me well in the past for outboard servicing and spares.

Hi Rob,

Welcome to the forum,
WRT parts, I get most of mine from keypart and Repower Marine in Falmouth but not sure if they do outboard parts, might be worth a look.
Easiest way is a google search for the engine specific and see what comes up, I’m sure some feedback can be given on recommendations then..

Hi Rob

Welcome to the forum. Are you going to use the boat for fishing or general pottering?

As sprocker has said, Force 4 are usually good for most things and their prices have become more competitive in the last few years. Parts do tend to be cheaper online but watch out for cheap copies.

If you are a little mechanically minded the Yamaha should be easy to service.
