New Extended Coverage for leisure boat engines helps boat owners stay ahead of costs

With the new Extended Coverage for marine engines and transmissions, Volvo Penta takes another step towards making boating life easier and more trouble-free for leisure boaters all over the world. By extending the protection, the owner will be able to stay ahead of possible, future repair costs.
Most leisure boaters wish to keep full control of all costs connected with their boating life and a good warranty means peace of mind. As an addition to the newly improved Volvo Penta International Limited Warranty, the Extended Coverage offer is a welcome “piece of the puzzle” for the boater. The basic objective – and the primary user benefits – of the Extended Coverage is predictability and control.

Peace of mind
Volvo Penta’s new standard warranty means that Volvo Penta engines and transmissions are fully protected for two years plus an additional three years for the engine’s and the transmission’s major components.

With this in mind, the purpose of the new Extended Coverage is obvious. By offering Volvo Penta boaters a full engine and transmission protection – i.e. repair or replacement of defective parts – also for year 3-5, they will stay protected even after the standard warranty has expired. This will give peace of mind to the many leisure boaters who want to make sure that their favourite pastime is protected from unexpected costs.

Leisure first
Volvo Penta’s objective is to supply a global offer for all engines. So, as a first step, Volvo Penta will introduce the Extended Coverage offer to leisure boaters in October 2013. Around the end of 2013, the marine commercial industry will also be able to take advantage of the extended coverage.

Clear conditions
The boat owner purchases the Extended Coverage when the engine is ordered, or latest three months from the date of commissioning, at the Volvo Penta dealer. During the limited warranty and extended coverage periods, all the owner must observe is that service is carried out according to plan.

Global service and support
Volvo Penta Warranties and the Extended Coverage depend on local presence for all service and support. This is provided by a constantly growing number of qualified Volvo Penta service dealers in more than 130 countries, which in turn is backed up by 40 Volvo Group warehouses that feed parts and accessories to 15,000 distribution points all over the world.
