(United States Only)
We at Bennett Marine, (Bennett) are committed to product quality and customer satisfaction. We’ve supported our products for more than half a century and have earned a reputation for exceptional service and support. In keeping with that tradition Bennett provides a Limited Warranty for its Products. Please see the table below for our Warranty details.
Bennett warrants to the original purchaser and subsequent owners, that Bennett will repair or replace, at the discretion of Bennett, any part or component manufactured by Bennett which is proven to the satisfaction of Bennett to be defective, and which failure has occurred under normal use and within the warranty period. This Limited Warranty does not apply to Products that have been damaged, or which fail, as a result of causes other than manufacturing defects (such as but not limited to electrical overloads, electrolysis, casualty, fire, collision, improper installation, lack of maintenance, exposure to elements, alteration, or misuse). This warranty does not cover damage to finishes. The warranty commences from the first date a Product is purchased by the customer. If the product is installed on a boat by an OEM then the warranty commences on the first day on which the first retail customer purchases the boat. This warranty applies exclusively to products purchased and used in the United States.
Disclaimer And Exclusion Of Warranties:
This warranty is meant to be a complete and exclusive statement of the terms of all express warranties offered by Bennett. To the extent permitted by law, there are no warranties, express or implied, including any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose extended by Bennett other than the express warranty set forth in this instrument. Some states do not allow the exclusion of, or limitations to, implied warranties so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Warranty Claim Procedure
To make a claim please email Bennett Marine at BMI_Info@Yamaha-Motor.com to troubleshoot the issue and start the claim process. You will be asked to complete our Quick and Easy Product Return Form and return the part for warranty evaluation. Parts will be evaluated upon receipt and any part found to meet the above warranty criteria will be repaired or replaced at Bennett’s option. Replacement or repaired parts will be shipped at no cost to the customer via ground freight to US destinations only. Any expedite methods will be at the customer’s expense.
Before expiration of the warranty period, this Limited Warranty is fully transferable to subsequent owners of the boat on which it is originally installed and is void if the product is removed and reinstalled on another boat or is used for purposes for which it was not originally purchased.
Limitation And Exclusion Of Remedies
Bennett’s sole responsibility shall be the repair or replacement, at its option, of any defective part or component. In certain instances Bennett reserves the right to provide refurbished parts. Customer agrees that this is the sole and exclusive remedy under this Limited Warranty. Bennett will not be responsible for any incidental, consequential or indirect damages, including loss of use as a result of any manufacturing defect in a Product. Bennett will not be responsible for labor, haul out, or any other fees associated with the removal or installation of warranted part. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation may not apply to you.
Bennett reserves the right to change, modify or improve the Products without obligation to incorporate such changes in Products previously sold or installed. With respect to components or products replaced under this warranty, Bennett Marine reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to provide updated or current model components or products.
