Advantages of Aftermarket Upper Units

Boating is all about freedom, adventure, and making lasting memories on the water. To ensure those memories are positive, it’s essential that every component of your boat is working in harmony. This is especially true for the sterndrive’s upper unit, a critical part of your boat’s propulsion system. While OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are a popular choice, there’s a strong case to be made for considering aftermarket upper units. Let’s explore the advantages of going aftermarket, in simple and straightforward terms.

Cost-Effectiveness One of the most immediate benefits of choosing an aftermarket upper unit is the cost savings. Aftermarket parts are often significantly more affordable than their OEM counterparts, allowing you to save money without necessarily sacrificing quality or performance. It’s like finding a great deal on a quality pair of running shoes – you get the performance you need at a fraction of the price.

Wide Selection Imagine walking into a store and finding a vast selection of shoes in every style and for every need. That’s similar to the variety you’ll find in the aftermarket world. Aftermarket upper units are available from a range of manufacturers, offering you more options to find the perfect fit for your boat and your specific boating style. 

Comparable Quality and Performance There’s a common view that aftermarket means lower quality. Many aftermarket upper units are manufactured to meet or even exceed OEM specifications. 

Availability If you’ve ever tried to find a specific part for an older model boat, you know how challenging it can be. Aftermarket upper units often provide a solution to this problem, with parts available for a wide range of makes and models, including those that may no longer be supported by OEM manufacturers. This availability can be a lifeline for keeping older boats in top condition.
