Outboard warranty

Hi,

When does an outboard manufacturers warranty come into effect?

Is it from date of purchase or date from date of commissioning a boat?

cheers


ps - Mercury outboard in this instance

It depends on if it was a package built boat.

My ribcraft and Suzuki warranty started the day the boat was commissioned or left the factory.

If the engine was put on the boat later it will be the date of outboard purchase

Hi there Dubes,

so what do you feel would be the situation if purchasing an engine alone from a boat builder that had not to date been commissioned?
Would the commissioning thing only work if purchased with a boat from the boat builder?

thanks eze

should have been commissioned from the supplying dealer otherwise = no warranty
you could always find out who the correct dealer was by calling up the manufacturer and see who stocked it and asked them why it wasn't done and/or registered

It will depend on how the builder got the engine and if they are a dealer.

If you are not paying close to new engine money then that is the clue the warranty has been ticking down.

You are best to ask the builder if the engine is new or not and confirm any warranty with barrus.

I'm going to guess you will find out the engine is technically used and warranty has been either never registered or ticking down. If it was a commercial registered engine you only get 1 year i think.
