Yup, first service is 300 hours or 3 years. I think you also get a 5 year warranty now (used to be 3 years). Even after 3 years you are only looking at plugs, impeller, gearbox oil & any software updates. See here
for more info. Personally, although the 75 Etec is a strong engine, I think it could be a tad underpowered for a 5.3m boat. I'd look at the 115hp if the boat will take it.
