Outboard or Inboard Boat Motors - Which is Right for You?

Inboard boat motors are often mounted within the boat, typically at the hull. Inboard motors are sometimes housed in a huge box in the boat's centre. This centre of gravity greatly enhances the drifting experience. Because of their lower centre of gravity, fishing trawlers on the high seas rely on these. Larger vessels, such as yachts, also employ inboard boat engines, but they require larger models that cannot be mounted on the back of the hull.

An outboard motor is rear-mounted on the boat and is controlled by a handle for steering and tilting. Because the propellers can be lifted fully out of the water, transporting and storing them while not in use is simple. Another significant advantage of outboard boat motors is that their position on the boat makes replacing the motor easier than with an inboard. Replacing an inboard is frequently an expensive and time-consuming task. This capability implies that you can easily upgrade to a newer, more powerful outboard boat engine whenever you want.

Now the main question is if both the outboard and inboard boat motors are good in their place, which one is best suited for your boat? Each one has its advantages and disadvantages, which we are listing below to help you make the right decision according to your individual preference -

Direct-drive inboard Boat Engines - 

The "direct drive inboard boat engine" system is located near the boat's centre. The engine sends power to a transmission, which allows for forward-neutral-reverse shifting, and then to the prop shaft, which passes through the boat bottom at a 7- to 12-degree angle. Because of this angle, some of the energy from the propeller is always elevating the boat rather than pushing it ahead.


  • Simple and efficient.
  • Little horsepower Consumption.


V- Drive Inboard Boat Motors -

A V-drive inboard boat motor is placed with the flywheel or rear of the engine facing forward. Boats with V- drive boat motor is used in watersport as they are good for wakeboarding, wake surfing, skiing, kneeboarding, etc. 

Two-Stroke Outboard Boat Motors -

A two-stroke engine performs the piston's suction and compression strokes in a single operation. Similarly, the expansion and exhaust strokes occur. The power that propels the engine is produced during the expansion stroke. Suction, compression, expansion, and exhaust occur in two piston strokes; hence the engine's name is a two-stroke engine.


  • Added Power
  • More Robust
  • Less Expensive
  • Lighter
  • Simpler Construction



  • Less Fuel Efficiency
  • Spread Pollution
  • Extra Maintenance


Four-Stroke Outboard Boat Engines -

A four-stroke engine has the same four steps as a two-stroke engine: suction, compression, expansion, and exhaust. However, these four steps are distributed across four piston strokes in a four-stroke outboard. Hence it is called - a four-stroke engine.


  • Fuel Efficiency
  • Silent Operation
  • Durable



  • Heavy Weight
  • High Maintenance
  • You might face issues when you start it.
