UK. Yamaha doubles warranty period for commercial outboard users.

Wednesday, 23 November 2011


Yamaha outboard engines remain the first choice for many commercial users and professional organisations, like the RNLI, throughout the UK.  These operators clock up many hundreds of engine hours use a year and recognise the quality, durability and outstanding design of Yamaha marine engines.

Despite the tough working conditions which many of these commercial outboards operate in, Yamaha know that if maintained correctly these engines will live up to their enviable reputation for reliability and have now shown their belief in these products by announcing a new 2 Year Commercial Warranty program – doubling the existing outboard Commercial Warranty period.

The new 2 Year Commercial Warranty covers all Yamaha outboard engines, both four-stroke and two-stroke models, supplied by Yamaha Motor (UK) Ltd and used in UK waters. To qualify the recommended outboard service schedule must be adhered to and engines need to be maintained throughout the period by an authorised Yamaha outboard dealership and must, of course, only use Genuine Yamaha service parts and Yamalube oil during the warranty period as only these products can be guaranteed to be made to the same high standards as the engines themselves.  Full details of terms and conditions can be seen on the Yamaha website PRO users section:  www.yamaha-motor.eu/uk/products/professional_user/index.aspx

The announcement of the 2 Year Commercial Warranty comes as Yamaha also recently increased the choice of four-stroke engines with the introduction of three new X-shaft variants of the popular F70, F80 and F100 models for 2012 that are sure to be popular with commercial users.  These X-shaft engines are suitable for larger, more substantial craft with 25” transom heights, common on many commercial boats and working catamarans.

The 2 Year Commercial Warranty is an important initiative from Yamaha, the world’s number one outboard manufacturer, and will give commercial operators even greater peace of mind when choosing a new Yamaha outboard for their craft.
