Our sales team is more than willing to assist with this process via telephone +1 877-639-2881 or via email info@marineengines4less.com.

New & Remanufactured Marine Engine Warranty:

All of our new and remanufactured marine base engines, marine extended base engines, and complete marine base engines come with a limited 1 year parts and labor manufacturer’s warranty. This warranty is provided in writing and is delivered with the engine. Please be sure to read and complete the warranty paperwork after installing the engine, as this paperwork will be needed should a warranty claim be required. Failure to return the warranty registration within the 30 days of receipt will void the original warranty and make it a 90 day warranty instead of a 1 year warranty.

A copy of our New & Remanufactured Marine Engine warranty can be found here (as of March, 2014)
