To be honest buddy, that sounds rather pricey :?
I’d have thought a packag deal would have saved you a bit more.

Quick google search..
T40 £ 980
Suzuki DF20 £2469

£3449 + trailer

Do you have a budget?
Do you need to trailer ?
Do you want a solid floor?
How many people will be in it?
Any problems with weight or size for lifting g/storing?
Where are you likely to use it ?

Dont jump straight in buddy, lots to weigh up before making a purchase.

Thanks again Martin, I have been looking a while so I do want the T40 with 20hp it will live on the trailer but I want transom wheels for easy launch, the one I was offered at the show has transom wheels full cover seat bag and apparently the trailer support the engine for save transport.
Does the extreme trailer support the engine or would I need to remove it?
My budget was £4000 and£1000 for courses radio and kit.
The whole setup would live in the garage.
Mainly use for inshore fishing and fun with the O/H and dog and occasionally on the Thames
Great help from a great forum all ready thanks

Ah, now you’ve added the launch wheels, cover, seat bags etc It’s sounding a little better priced.
Which outboard manufacturer is it ?
