    Default 10 hour service

    Does anyone know if the 10 hour service has to be done by a dealer to keep the warranty?

    Default Service

    ABSOLUTELY. Your boat is under warranty for a year by the manufacturer, 3yrs. by Indmar, and with having your boat serviced and traded through the dealer, allows transfer of the lifetime structural warranty, which will help in the trade or resale value. This service is designed for the consumer. Most issues will happen in the first 20 hrs., this enables the dealer to fix these issues, and keep your boat maintained and documented. Whenever a issue may arise, contact your dealer immediately, this informs him of the issues, and if replacement parts are in order, he can have them readily available for your next service, to delay any down time waiting for parts.

    Default No problems, no worries

    The 10 hr. check-up and oil change are great(if convenient). However, with the new generation of motors and owner usage, 20hrs is the suggested interval to have the boat taken to the dealer. The dealer has a specified suggested outline for this procedure recommended by the factory. It covers all aspects of the boat, from oil change and motor inspection, to hull and deck inspection, and trailer maintenance. If there are any warrantable issues, (hopefully there was prior contact with the dealer), these will also be handled at this time. This is a very important appt. to be sceduled with the dealer, it is a very busy time of year for both you, and the dealer. Make sure you can schedule it with them, so there is little down time for you. A few hrs. before or after 20hrs. is okay. When having a boat serviced at the dealer, they have all the documentation of the boat, which is helpful for all warrantable issues, and resale/trade-in value. Hope this helps.Brian Raymond
