    I would go with Yamaha. They seem very bulletproof.

    I’d also take service centers for the make/model in the area into consideration. I went with Mercury because the few service centers near the lake where I keep the boat were primarily all Mercury dealers. I get all my maintenance there versus a long tow if I purchased another make/model. I wanted to use a certified mercury dealer while the outboard is still under warranty.

    They are both great motors.  Most important thing should be access to authorized service close to you.  Yamaha has a much larger dealer and service network than Honda.
