Ordered a $5200.00 motor on Thursday 11:30 am, got immediate tracking and motor was delivered Monday at noon. Would highly recommend! These reviews are very important, made me comfortable buying from outboarddirect.com which is Plateau Marines online store.

Engine was shipped quickly and arrived in great condition. I had a few questions prior to ordering and they were answered very quickly and professionally. I will definitely purchase more boat related products from them!

I had an excellent purchasing experience. Very good explanation on how my 30 hp Suzuki would be shipped and prepared. Free shipping to my residence. I also bought control cables from them. Both times they had them out to me quickly.

Ordered a 15 hp Suzki outboard online from Plateau Marine very pleased with service, price and the shipping was very fast. Installed the motor myself and it worked perfectly. If you are interested in a outboard I would recommend Plateau Marine.

I had searched for my outboard motor locally for weeks on end with no luck. Every dealer I spoke to could and would order one for me with a estimated arrival date of two months. I was nervous ordering such a large and pricey item online especially when several of the sites had questionable reviews. Then I found Plateau Marine. I gave them a call and the owner spent at least 30 minutes on the phone with me discussing my concerns and the motor I was interested in. Not only did he have my motor in stock but he was cheaper than most other places I had contacted and would ship fast and free!! I placed my order on Thursday at noon and at 3:00 I received a email saying that my order was complete and being shipped. I was contacted Friday morning by FedEx wanting to set up a delivery time at my home for Monday morning. The motor came securely packaged and undamaged right to my front door. My ordering experience was extremely easy and fast. I highly recommend Plateau Marine and will be using them again for my boating needs.

I love my new Suzuki 30HP outboard! It starts up in about a millisecond and runs so quiet that the water rushing past the boat drowns it out. The folks at Plateau Marine were wonderful to work with. They were extremely responsive and courteous to may inquiries prior to purchase. I would highly recommend giving them your business!

Great company to deal with. Best prices, best service. they followed through on everything. dates given for when outboard was coming in and then being shipped out to me, was spot on. Highly recommend them.

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and a lot of the local boat shops around here didn’t have any outboard motors, that I was looking for, in stock. So I went online to search for a company who sold and shipped outboard motors.After searching for a few days, I found a well known company who sold and shipped outboards directly to your doorstep, and also had tons of great reviews (1.2k reviews). Unfortunately they didn’t have any outboards in stock that I wanted.As luck would have it, I happen to stumble upon Plateau Marine/OutboardDirect.com. They offered the best prices and free shipping, which included free lift gate service!It took 9 days from when I placed my order (placed it on a Sunday) to getting delivered right to my doorstep.Overall, I’m super satisfied with my experience. I definitely recommend this company if you want fast, reliable service, and the best prices on the market!

Scott,My experience in dealing with Plateau Marine from the initial inquiry to the ultimate purchase and delivery of my new Suzuki 30 to the boatyard doing the installation was Excellent!Your pricing and communication from my initial conversation with you reserving the motor with small deposit (awaiting delivery to your site from Suzuki) to the receipt of motor from Suzuki at your facility, to the shipping status to Massachusetts via Fed-X Ground and delivery to my boatyard were outstanding.I can only hope all business transactions were as simple and straight forward as my experience in dealing with Plateau Marine.I would not hesitate to recommend Plateau Marine.Looking forward to spring and "Ice-Out" to run the new motor on the Whaler.Thank you,Norm MacLeodMassachusetts

Awesome experience!! I was skeptical at first to buy online and out-of-state but after speaking with Scott on the phone, I placed an order for a 20hp Suzuki. Five days later it arrived at my doorstep exactly as promised. I only have great things to say and would absolutely recommend buying from them if you are in the market for a small outboard.
