"Awesome rebuild! (Yamaha 225 VMAX) Better than when Brad bought the boat. We went out Tuesday and broke the motor in. It runs smooth as silk, better than when it was new."

"To Mike and Crew, I just wanted to leave a little feed back on the purchase of my motor. In 2009 I purchased a complete motor from you. It was a great motor and everything was as you told me it would be. A few weeks ago, I had an issue with the motor, called you, and you took care of the issues for me in a timely manner. I will do business with you from now on. Thank You!"

Steve - FL

"I just wanted to thank everyone for the help you guys gave me with the trim tilt on my 2000 Johnson 50 hp out board. You guys completely rock. I got everything back on the boat yesterday, bled and filled the trim tilt unit and took the boat out. Everything is working perfectly. Thank you all again. I am recommending you to everyone I talk to who is looking to buy an outboard."

Tim P. , Victoria Texas 

y'all are some awesome people,I'm going to tell all my Texas fishing friends too look y'all up for repower.


Eric, Breaux Bridge, LA

"I recently purchased the 2006 Evinrude 225HP HO. The engine was delivered in a very timely manner as promised. The physical condition of the motor was like it was taken right off the showroom floor with the exception of a few very minor scratches on the cowling which were to be expected. After much anxiety about buying a large HP outboard sight unseen and untested, I finally got a chance to put the boat in the water. It has exceeded all my expectations and I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. Being torn between a new outboard purchase and this alternative, choosing this option has saved me thousands on installation, controls and related equipment that went with a new purchase and I got a higher HP motor as well. Blackbird Motors supplied me with everything that was needed for a super easy hook up to my older controls. I can look forward to a great Summer season on the water. Thanks!"

“I just picked up my motor last Thursday and wanted to know if I need to get a warranty validation number? Thank you for the great service and professionalism that I was given while there. It was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed talking to the different people there and was made to feel very much at home. I feel good about the motor even though I won’t be able to run it for a couple more weeks but it ran fine on the muffs and I feel confident in your mechanics. You have a great shop and I will recommend to all my friends and fishing buddies. Thanks again! "

D Scrivener, Carthage, MS

"My experience dealing with Blackbird Motors was a good experience. I bought a pair of 225 optimax motors and was very pleased with the price, service and installation. They did a very good job re-rigging and setting up the new smart gauges and controls. I towed over 320 miles one way and it was definitely worth it. Thanks guys."


"Hi I purchased a 2006 90hp johnson back in June . Love the motor and i want to purchase another one right after the first of the year . Do you have any 90 hp Johnsons available? Thanks."

Gordon McN, Ocala, FL 

"Hello Blackbird. I wanted to write and tell you how much I am enjoying the remanufactured 2007 Mercury Optimax 225hp that I recently purchased from you. I have twelve hours on it now without so much as a hiccup. You all did a great a great job! Your suggestion to use Terry Heist in Deland, FL as an installer was certainly a good one. He did an excellent job. Your tag line "Why buy used" should be amended to "Why buy new". Thanks again."

James R - PA

"I bought a 1999 90 hp Rebuilt Johnson from you; 1 1/2 years later this motor runs like a brand new one. Power-more than a new motor, starts every time and I fish in very cold weather and heat, never shuts off once its running. Right after I bought this motor it developed a miss, one call to these folks and I returned to be treated very nicely and the motor was fixed by replacing a part, NO CHARGE! I will never buy a new motor as long as these nice dependable folks are rebuilding outboards, I would recommend Blackbird to anyone who needs a rebuilt, you will be treated well and end up with a better than new motor, My life depends on this motor to get be back to the dock and it has. Thanks for a product keeps working and if I ever need motor help, you's have my business."

RF - New Rochelle, NY

"I bought a 1998 Mercury 150 EFI from your company in June of 2007, This engine has run like a top from day 1. I have sent three of my Blass Club friends up to have rebuilds done and all three used your "while you wait" service (in by 9 out by 4) and so far Blackbird Motors is batting 1000. I just wanted to say thanks again."

Craig C, WV

"Due to everyone at Blackbird Motors I am a returning customer! First time was in 2009 when they rebuilt my Johnson 150 Fast Strike. I am not kidding when I say the motor ran better than when it was new!!! My 35 year veteran mechanic said the rebuild was the best he had ever seen. So, now I am back again getting the same motor rebuilt. I have a son who is on the Virginia Tech Bass Fishing Team. Two weeks ago while fishing a BASS College Super Regional at Smith Mountain Lake, he let the oil reservoir run dry and the motor locked up! Obviously my son and I had us a good long talk about boat maintenance and oil levels!!!!! Yes it is painful to spend money to rebuild only after 3 years and due to just basically human error on the part of my son, but I would never trust anyone else to touch my motor. Do yourself a favor and call Blackbird for your rebuilds!"

SG - Dry Prong, LA

"Last year you guys rebuilt the powerhead on my 1993 Johnson 115. I take the boat out weekly and have not had a problem at all with the rebuild even after putting over 100 hours on the motor. The guys and the ladies in the office were very helpful during the whole process. Thanks!"

Doug T - GA

"Just a quick note to say thanks again for the excellent service. I installed the YAMAHA 90 on my boat and it has been used four times since. It runs better than ever. It is quieter and it has more power. A special thanks to Brian and Stan for the work they did. I won't hesitate to recommend you guys." ​

Guy A. Columbia, SC​

“I would like to thank the entire staff at Blackbird Motors. I blew out my 2002 Evinrude 250 Hp Fitch motor. Many people told me just to junk them. After talking with you I felt confident, you gave me great advice. Their professional staff rebuilt my motors. Once again I am enjoying the Jersey shore. Thank you to all the staff at Blackbird Motors. Keep up the good work.”

Jim B., Point Pleasant, NJ

Hey guys my motor was received the other day by my mechanic and he said how good the motor looks, and that it looks like you guys take a lot of pride in your work.  If my "NEW" motor runs as good as it looks I will be recommending you to everyone I know in need of a repower thanks again for all your help and honesty in this process greatfully
