Evinrude To Announce 10-year Warranty

Postby jimh » Fri Dec 02, 2016 4:39 pm

From the usually reliable sources comes word that Evinrude will very soon announce a promotion for E-TEC engines that are pre-rigged on new boats: there will be an option for a 10-year-warranty coverage. That's all the details I have now. This should be an interesting promotion. A decade or more ago Suzuki upset the outboard industry with a 6-year-warranty. A 10-year warranty would be a first in the outboard engine business.

Does that mean if installed by a non-dealer entity or person it is not available, even if "certified" by a dealer?

Dealer re-power options:
10 year warranty or 6 year warranty and free rigging.

Evinrude Just Announced 10-year Warranty

Postby jimh » Mon Dec 12, 2016 12:55 pm

Here is the promotion in writing:

EVINRUDE® E-TEC® BOAT SHOW SALES EVENT
DECEMBER 12, 2016 [to] MARCH 31, 2017
10-YEAR COVERAGE*
UP TO A $7,500 VALUE**


Cf.: http://www.evinrude.com/content/dam/evinrude/United-States/Documents/Boat%20Show%20CRP/Evinrude-Boat-Show-offer-US.pdf

And here is the fine print. First the offer is qualified as to who, when, and where:

Offer valid only to qualified buyers on purchases of engines bought for recreational use only. Excludes engines purchased under commercial, professional, and government programs. Offer is valid in the USA only on new and unused Evinrude E-TEC 2008 and newer engines purchased, delivered and registered between 12/12/16 and 3/31/17 at an authorized, participating Evinrude dealer.


The phrase "10-year coverage" is explained:

10-YEAR COVERAGE: Subject to all exclusions, limitations of liabilities, and all other terms and conditions of BRP’s standard limited warranty and B.E.S.T. contract, including without limitation the exclusions of damages caused by abuse, abnormal use or neglect (see B.E.S.T. contract for specific details of coverage and exclusions).


The scope of products eligible is explained and several engine models are explicitly excluded, but--quite nicely--rigging components purchased with the engine will be covered, too:

Offer effective on all new and unused 15 H.O. and above Evinrude outboard engines. Eligible models will receive 10-year coverage (3 years of BRP Limited Warranty and 7 years of BRP Extended Service Terms [B.E.S.T.]coverage) subject to a $50 deductible on each repair.

Evinrude portable engines (3.5 HP–15 HP) come with 3 years BRP limited warranty and 2 years of BEST coverage. Evinrude Jet Series engines are eligible for 10-year coverage offer on the upper unit only. The jet pump assembly will only receive a 3-year BRP limited warranty.

All rigging components purchased on the same bill of sale as the engine, will be covered under the same BRP Extended Service Terms as the engine.


The claim that the value of the incentive could be $7.500 is explained:

**Approximate retail value of 7 years BRP Extended Service Terms coverage is based on number of HP and is up to $7,500 for a 300HP engine.


The general conditions of the offer are explained:

Offer subject to change without notice. See your authorized, qualified Evinrude dealer for details. Terms and conditions apply. Offer may not be assigned, traded, sold or combined with any other offer unless expressly stated herein. OFFER VOID WHERE RESTRICTED OR OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
