Sea Ray is pleased to announce that for the 2017 model year for boats manufactured in the United States and Mexico, we will provide our industry leading 3 Year Sport Cruiser / Sport Yacht / Yacht Warranty. In addition,through Brunswick Product Protection Corporation, five years of engine warranty coverage is provided on gas engines and drives. Meanwhile, the L-Class yachts are protected by Sea Ray's industry-leading L-Class warranty, which includes a 3-year engine/generator warranty by the manufacturer, and ongoing concierge support.
A tremendous amount of research and discussions were devoted to ensuring we are providing the most extensive warranties while continuing to build the most sought after and supported boats in the industry. Sea Ray's factory warranties provide longer coverage terms and are more inclusive than the factory warranties of our key competitors. Additionally, our boat warranties are managed by Sea Ray, unlike third party managed extended or promotional warranty programs provided by some of our competitors, and are transferable to subsequent owners free of charge.
* Items that were covered prior to the 2016 model year for a period of 1 year on Sport Boats are now covered for 5 years, and items that were once covered on Sport Cruisers, Sport Yachts and Yachts for 1 year are now covered for 3 years by Sea Ray. Items such as engines, drives, generators, and trailers will continue to be covered by their own OEM or supplemental warranties as reviewed above. Please refer to the Sea Ray Express Limited Warranty Statements for full details. Customers in Australia: please refer to the Australian Sea Ray Express Limited warranty.
