Which dealer is it with?

Also if you are not using Liverpool powerboats to do the work then perhaps that is why they are not rushing to help?

The boats in anglesey with Dulas Marine, it's not feasible to tow it back every time it breaks, to tow it back to test, and bring back again. It would of been from anglesey to Liverpool 5 times by now.

LPB sold the engine, not Dulas, it should all be on the BRP system, but it's not.

Depends, Liverpool powerboats have a good reputation and if they are as good as they are supposed to be you might not have had it back to the dealer so many times...

I had to tow my E-tec 80 miles to get it to a good dealer but I'd rather do that than risk a poor one.

Either way I hope it gets resolved for you soon...

when did they change from a 3 year warrantee to 5 year? Are etecs that bad or is this really a one off? It's starting to put me off buying one if the warrantee doesn't appear to be worth anything.

They have been 5 years as standard for about 18 months. However they used to offer 5 years occasionally as a promotional thing a while back.

I've only heard good things re Dulas to be fair.
