Our warranty is the best in the business.  Just like you’d expect from Honda.

  • 5 Years – with No Strings Attached

    Yes, you read that right.  All new Honda Marine outboard motors purchased for recreational use from an authorized Honda Marine dealer will be warranted against defects in material or workmanship for five (5) years from date of purchase.  No catches.  No strings.  It’s that simple.

  • A Real, Factory Direct Warranty

    The True 5 warranty is offered and fully backed by Honda Marine for the life of the warranty.  It’s not a 3rd party “extended service” contract, like most of our competitors offer. 

    There’s a big difference: the third party warranty companies often are more concerned with limiting claim payouts than with satisfying your service needs. 

  • Non-Declining

    True 5 coverage is the same on the last day of coverage as it is on the first. This is not like "pro-rated" warranties that offer decreasing coverage as the warranty approaches its end date.

    With Honda’s True 5 Warranty, your motor is covered from top to bottom – from the first day to the last day of your warranty.

  • Fully Transferable

    Selling your boat? No problem.  The original engine warranty still applies, even if it changes owners.

  • Nationwide Service

    Honda Marine has a network of over 1,000 dealers throughout the U.S. who are highly trained and equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment.  It’s all a part of Honda’s commitment to keeping you on the water and out of the service shop. Isn’t that what it's all about?
