coleman outboard motors
« on: June 29, 2015, 05:40:08 AM »
Walking through a Cabella's store yesterday, I saw an outboard motor with "Coleman" decals. Didn't pay attention to the size, but I'd guess 20 +/- hp. It's highly likely a private label made for Coleman. It was hung adjacent to a similar sized Merc, and I came to the conclusion it probably wasn't a Merc. Curious who.makes it. I should have stuck around and paid more attention.

As you probably know, the Coleman brand name is mostly licensed out to whoever is willing to pay their fees. However, Coleman itself does have some products made in China and sold under its own name in the USA. Wonder if those might be Chineses outboards?

I found this site for Coleman Power Sports which seems to have boats and motors: http://colemanatv.com/en/parts-a-accessories/boat-motors.html

Wouldn't surprise me if they were Chinese. Didn't have a lot of time yesterday, but I'll take a closer look next time I'm in the store. I'm leaning towards a private label, possibly a Merc with a different shaped cover (and Coleman decals) to make it look unlike a Merc.
