A buddy just sent me a post from Tohatsu Panama. They are selling new two stroke 40 hp tiller commercial models for $3,200! I can’t even get a 25 hp in the states for that price.
Kinda makes me want to take a flight down and ship a few home.

Yeah but the big question is warranty on those not to mention what do you really save when you add in a plane ticket and shipping (which isn't going to be cheap).

What does a 40 hp cost new in the states? I understand this may be a no thrills model but that is what many small skiffs need.

Most motor manufacturers very carefully track motors sold in country and will not warranty motors not sold here... They’ll be glad to service or repair them, but warranties- that’s another deal entirely...

Since it's a serialized motor and needs to be shipped, isn't there a heavy import tax?

Find out the cost of a 20' shipping container.

Then you can figure out how many can fit inside.

Price to ship container does not vary for empty or full.
