If you were considering the same boat, same options, one had warranty (5 year) and one didn't, how much more if any would you be willing to pay for the boat with warranty? For reference, I'm asking about a budget boat <15k.

call your local dealer and see what a 3 year extended warranty costs... - that will give a basis for what a warranty is worth.

Read the fine print. I assume the $15K boat is well used.

If you could get a good warranty on a well used boat, it would probably make sense to pay good amount of money for it.

However, I would really investigate how good the warranty is.

I have had multiple warranties from FPC out of Minnesota. I had one on a used and new Mastercraft and they paid claims on both the engine and trailer (new leaf springs). Extended warranties are only as good as the first time you have a claim and try to collect. Some try to weasel out of paying with clauses like "normal wear not covered" ect. Also check with your insurance Commissioner to see if the Warranty company has complaints against it in the State you bought it.
Most Warranty Co's require a pre inspection so they are not paying for pre existing conditions.

Some type of inner electronic issue caused my Malibu's power wedge to break. Luckily it was stuck in the up position so there was no exigency to get it fixed immediately. When I did, it was fixed within a week, but the explanation was pretty in depth. It was under warranty and the dealership did real good, but I could only imagine how much it would have been if there was no warrant, or when it happens again...

Depends on the terms of the warranty and who is backing it.

Is there a serious issue with your boat?
