Warranty and Going Abroad???...
Hope this is in the correct section!
I have a question about warranty and going abroad.
My rib is now in Spain (it was bought brand new in the UK a year ago) and the Tohatsu 50HP outboard is now due a service. It is hard to get to the nearest Tohatsu dealer out there and also they charge a bomb compared to smaller local marine companies. What I want to know is, does my Tohatsu outboard have to be serviced at a main dealer to keep its warranty or can it be serviced by any marine company as long as they use OEM parts and service it to the book/schedule? I know with cars in the UK this is the case, that you can use none dealers without effecting your warranty! Is it the same in the boating world and in Europe?
