Now lots of companies say that right? But then you show them a pic of a 1988 mariner 40hp an they start sucking thier teeth! Or even worse you show them a nice 90hp mariner 4 stoke that you have lovingly cared for all its life only for them to offer you three boiled sweets and a bag of marbles for it (We can even offer px on boats and trailers too!). Well that wont happen here. We care about all of our customers and are committed to doing things the right way. So come on – lets get the deal done!

We’re not government-backed, so we won’t make it sound too good to be true, but here’s our promise: If you’ve got a similar engine to trade in, regardless of its age or condition, we’ll take it as px, and what’s more we will use Bill Higham’s good old fashioned values of quality and integrity to work out a deal that’s right for you. 😄

Choosing an Explorer 500 is a bold move! Sharing one’s passions with friends, even many of them at a time (16 maximum !) – what a nice plan! The Explorer’s versatility is limitless: diving, fishing, spearfishing, waterskiing… nice weather, light wind, or strong sea? No problem; the Explorer is always there for you, safe.
