I was talking to a friend about the cost of maintaining a new boat and what a drag you only get a one year warranty. He said his Malibu had a 2 year for everything, 3 for major things and 5 for engine. So what is the deal with new boat warranties. What is CC, malibu, MC, Tige and Supra warranties?

When you think about it 1-2 years isn't a whole lot when you're dropping 60k +. Especially for something that most people only use for a limited amount of hours per year. With a 2 year warranty if you put 150 hours per year on that would probably be the equivalent of like a 6 month warranty on a brand new car.

Tige is life time on the Hull and if it fails you get a new boat they don't fix it

3 years on the engine

5 years on the interior and vinyl

CC comes standard with a 5 year front to back on engine and vinyl.

I bought my boat in 03' at the boat show and as incentive they were offering an extra year on warranty if you bought at the show. I have until 09' to take care of any issues.

I believe that on top of replacing you're boat if need be, Tige will also kick you 10k for your troubles. To date, I've never heard of them ever having any type of hull failure.

Sold boats for a long time and I am dissapointed that the boat companies don't put a better warranty on there products... liftime on the hull or structure is generally everybody Tige is nothing special just a sales pitch... Boston Whaler came out w/ the pitch in 1943.. So the rest I would call profit taking.. Nothing wrong w/ that but when you are paying 60K for a boat you would expect some better back up.. In a business sence it does allow the dealers to sale there extended warranties @ a 300%-400% mark-up... Still you are smart to buy it because most of the marine products out there need it.. The market 5 years ago exploded and the price of boats went through the roof.. I think for what the consumers are paying for now the boat companies need to get the backs of people who are taking care of them.... Just an idea

I think just about everything could use a better warranty.
