That is certainly a high number. Any way you can hook up a scanner and see where it has spent most of its running time?? If it is all mostly idle time, then no worries. If it is mostly 3500 and above I would be concerned.

Also give us more info on brand and model of the boat it is in.

Like Smitty said, get it scanned. When I scan my motor, it shows below 1500 rpms for 50% of the hours.

530 hours on an 8 year old boat is only 66.25 hours a year, very average for the age.

Is this a repo deal or does the seller have every book, service record since day one? If it is stock, with frequent fluid changes/service and reasonable scan history (not all WFO) then is it getting to the point of some maintenance but not a case of run away.....

i have 350 houres on my 2002 25 outlaw. runs like it was brand new. i dont think 520 hours is a big deal as long as it has been mantained.
