Warranty Coverage

As a world-class manufacturer of marine products, Mercury Marine knows that a great deal of its success is built upon customer satisfaction. All new Mercury outboards, sterndrives, inboards, and parts and accessories carry an outstanding limited factory warranty.

All Mercury outboards and MerCruiser sterndrives, inboards, and tow sport inboards come standard with three years of limited corrosion protection. MerCruiser SeaCore sterndrives come standard with four years of limited corrosion protection. So in even the harshest marine environment, your engine is protected.

MerCruiser sterndrives, inboards and tow sport inboards have a standard limited, non-declining warranty. The length of warranty coverage can be one, two, or three years depending on the model. Please refer to our Warranty Coverage Chart or contact your local authorized Mercury MerCruiser dealer for more details.

Certain boat brands, whose manufacturers have met the requirements for the Mercury Installation Quality Certification Program, carry an additional year of warranty on the MerCruiser engine. The program is the first of its kind in the boating industry and the only comprehensive manufacturer-installation certification system. This rigorous system identifies areas of improvement and implements resolution before the product leaves the factory. With the addition of the Installation Quality Certification Program, Mercury not only advances the marine industry to new standards but also ensures that you get the highest-quality products possible so your boating experience will be the best it can possibly be.

Also, Mercury warranty coverage is factory-backed. Your dealer works directly with us, so there are no third-party claims to file – and no adjusters to contend with. This simplifies the claim process and gets you back onto the water quicker.

Mercury warranty coverage is non-declining. The warranty coverage is the same on the last day of your warranty as it is on the first – meaning coverage doesn’t decline based on the age of your engine, or the number of hours you’ve put on it.

This coverage also extends to the controls and rigging components on your boat. If your builder uses genuine Mercury Precision Parts when installing the engine on your boat, the warranty coverage for those rigging components now matches the total warranty of your engine. This means you could have up to an additional two years of control and rigging component coverage.

Lastly, for longer-term relationships, Mercury Product Protection plans are available on select engines. Visit our Mercury Product Protection page for more information.
