1. Area of applicability.
A. Unless explicitly agreed otherwise in writing, the offering, sale and delivery of all goods (each a
“Product”) by Brunswick Marine in EMEA, LLC., or its applicable affiliate (the “Company”) and
a purchaser (the “Purchaser”) shall be governed by the present general terms and conditions of
sale and apply to all transactions between the Company and Purchaser, whether or not explicitly
identified on any particular Order or Invoice.
B. To the extent that there is any unambiguous conflict of terms between an Agreement or Invoice
and these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale, such Agreement or Invoice shall control solely
with respect to the Products identified on such Invoice and only to the extent of such unambiguous
conflict of terms.
C. Other conditions or stipulations mentioned on forms or documents issued by the Purchaser
(including but not limited to their general terms and conditions), are not applicable unless expressly
agreed in writing by the Company. In the event that explicit preference is given in writing to the
terms and conditions of the Purchaser or to any special agreement whatsoever, the following terms
and conditions shall remain valid in a supplementary way.
D. By entering into any and all agreement with the Company, the Purchaser declares to have received
a copy of these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale and accepts these Standard Terms and
Conditions of Sale.
E. These Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to the entire contractual relationship between
the parties, including individual purchase orders or contracts for specific Products. Deviations,
additions or modifications of these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale shall not be effective
unless expressly agreed in writing between the parties.
F. The Purchaser declares that they know and understand the meaning of all technical terms used in
these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale, as well as any possible additions to them and those
used in the offer and/or order confirmation.
G. The Company retains the right to amend these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale in its sole
discretion at any time upon notice to the Purchaser. Such changes shall be applicable as of the
thirtieth (30th) day following notice to the Purchaser.
H. An amendment or waiver of any of these Standard Terms and Conditions with respect to the sale
of any Products must be explicitly included on the applicable Invoice for such Products or in a
writing signed by both the Company and the Purchaser. The failure or delay by either the Company
or the Purchaser to enforce any term of these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale will not
constitute a waiver thereof. No waiver of any term will be deemed a continuous or future waiver
of such term or any other term.

2. Relationship between the parties
A. Purchaser does not have the right to bind the Company in relation to third parties or to enter into
any agreement in the name of or for the account of the Company, except where the Company has
expressly requested and authorised Purchaser to do so in writing
3. Orders.
A. The Purchaser must submit orders in writing to the Company in a manner and format prescribed
by the Company for the Purchaser from time to time (each, an “Order”). The Purchaser shall
submit Orders at least three (3) months prior to the desired shipping date
B. Any mentioned delivery times on an Order confirmation and/or acknowledgement and/or receipt
are an indication, not a guarantee nor confirmation of a binding delivery time. Longer delivery
times than the delivery times indicated an Order confirmation and/or acknowledgement and/or
receipt, will not entitle the Customer to compensation.
C. All Orders are subject to these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale, and any additional or
different terms submitted by the Purchaser with any Order will be deemed rejected and will also be
void and of no effect.
D. Any Order receipt and/or acknowledgement does not yet constitute a contract of sale. All Orders
submitted by the Purchaser are subject to availability and acceptance by the Company, and the
Company may reject any Order for any reason in its sole discretion. The Company agrees to make
reasonable efforts to preliminarily accept or reject and to fill all orders promptly. No unshipped
Order shall be deemed accepted by the mere failure of the Company to reject it in writing or the
Company’s delivery of any order confirmation. The Company’s full or partial acceptance of an
Order will be indicated solely by its issuance a definitive invoice (each, an “Invoice”) relating to
the Products listed on an Order.
E. Failure to fill all or any part of an order shall not render the Company liable for any loss or damages
to the Purchaser.
F. The Purchaser’s cancellation of orders will be subject to the Company’s current cancellation policy,
including any payment required thereunder.
G. The weights, measurements, capacities and other details that are included in catalogues,
advertisements, depictions, and price lists are only meant to be approximations. These details only
bind the Company in so far as this is explicitly stated.
H. The Company retains the right to suspend the execution of an order if the Purchaser’s account at
the Company shows that the Purchaser is in default of any payment obligation to the Company or
its subsidiaries or if the Purchaser demonstrates to be insolvent. In the event of a refusal to take
possession of an order or if there is a delay in the delivery as a result of a suspension of an order
for which the Purchaser is directly or indirectly responsible, storage costs will be charged to the
Purchaser, without prejudicing the Company’s right to cancel the agreement.

4. Prices
A. Unless agreed otherwise in writing by both parties, the Products will be invoiced at the price as
applicable on the moment of delivery of the Products, not the moment of order.
Prices are always subject to possible increases if this is a result of the evolution of their fixed and/or
variable costs (e.g.: wages and other social security contributions, costs of material, processing
costs, energy costs, ex-change rates, etc.). The Company shall have the right to set and revise
pricing for the Products, at any time in its sole discretion, with such prices becoming effective
immediately upon notification by the Company.
5. Shipments.
A. Unless otherwise agreed in writing or stated in an Invoice with respect to a certain shipment of
Products or in these Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale, Products will be shipped FCA (place
of delivery) (Incoterms 2020) (including the risk of loss allocation thereunder). If the delivery term,
the place of delivery, or the circumstances of the delivery change at the request of the Purchaser,
or if the Purchaser has provided incorrect information to this end, the Company is entitled to
payment of the additional costs incurred.
B. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 5.A, and except when otherwise explicitly
specified on the Company’s price list or on the applicable Invoice, the Purchaser shall cause to be
paid or shall make reimbursement to the Company in full for any and all (i) taxes, duties, customs,
tariffs, VAT, or other charges imposed by any governmental authority upon any purchase or sale
of Products and (ii) all shipping, transportation, insurance, handling, storage and delivery charges
from the factory (even when provided or arranged by Company).
C. Each of the Company and the Purchaser shall assist the other party in the processing and collection
of any claims against a carrier of the Products.
D. Shipments will be subject to the Company’s production schedule and availability of materials or
transportation equipment. The Company may allocate Products in short supply to its customers in
its sole discretion.
E. The Company may refuse shipment if the Purchaser (including any of its owners, shareholders,
officers or managers) or any of the Purchaser’s customers appear on any applicable United States
Restricted Party or Denied Party List or such shipment would otherwise violate applicable law.
F. The Company may refuse shipment for any credit reason, including the Purchaser’s failure to pay
for any prior shipment, including failure to timely pay any financial institution involved in the
financing of the Purchaser’s purchases.
6. Acceptance and Inspection.
A. All claims for shortage, defects (whether apparent or hidden) or damages or unacceptable Product
shall be made within ten (10) days of the Purchaser’s receipt of the Products or parts or will be
deemed waived.
B. If the Purchaser fails to promptly accept delivery of any Products ordered, the Purchaser shall
reimburse the Company for any costs incurred, including the return of such Products to the
Company and a twenty percent (20%) restocking fee.

C. All returns will be subject to the Company’s current return policy.
7. Payment Terms.
A. Unless the Company, in its sole discretion, agrees to extend credit to the Purchaser in writing, all
Product sales must be paid for in full in advance by the Purchaser. The Company is under no
obligation to extend credit to the Purchaser, and if the Company does, it may change credit terms
upon notice. All terms of credit, including the due date for each Invoice, any cash price discount,
and the Purchaser’s specific credit limit, will be as specified from time to time by the Company.
B. All purchases will be subject to the Company’s then current credit approval and review process.
C. The Company’s invoices are payable to the Company’s designated bank account at the latest on
the due date indicated on the respective order or in the relevant invoices. The invoice has been
settled when the complete amount stated on the invoice has been received on the Company’s
designated bank account as indicated on the front of the invoice.
D. All invoices from the Company are to be paid in the indicated currency. When the payment is done
in a different currency, the conversion will be calculated with regards to the highest rate, either at
the rate of the invoice date or the date of payment. All bank and exchange costs connected to the
collection of the amount will be charged to the Purchaser. Representatives are not authorized to
receive payments.
E. Invoices that are not disputed by registered letter within eight days after their issuing will be
considered to have been fully accepted.
F. If the Purchaser fails to pay in full any invoice by the due date, or fails to pay in full any other
payment due to the Company under any agreement between parties and/or these Standard Terms
and Conditions of Sale by the due date for payment, then:
(i) the Purchaser shall pay interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 10% per annum (except
that if the legal rate of interest is higher, it shall be applied). Such interest shall accrue on a
daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount. The
Purchaser shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount; and
(ii) the Purchaser shall pay the Company 10% of the outstanding balance, with a minimum amount
of 250,00 EUR for costs associated with a.o. the collection of the amounts due and with the
adverse consequence on the Company’s cash flow, as liquidated damages. The parties confirm
that this sum represents a genuine pre-estimate of the Company’s loss. This paragraph is
without prejudice to the Company’s right to prove and claim any higher damages.
G. Late, incomplete or non-payment of one expired invoice will cause all other invoices, for which a
particular instalment term has been agreed on, to become immediately payable, without previous
notice of default. Interest for late payment is due as from the moment that the non-expired invoices
become payable. Liquidated damages may in addition be due in accordance with section 7 F. Partial
payments will firstly be deducted from interest due, liquidated damages payments and possible
costs and only then from unpaid invoices.
H. Any use of promissory notes, cheques or permission to draw a bill to cover the agreed upon price
shall never be regarded as a renewal of the debt of the original invoice, nor will it limit or alter any
‘right of retention’, agreement or territorial jurisdiction

I. The Company is entitled to suspend or postpone its obligations in connection with other current
agreements between the parties to the extent that the Purchaser has not complied with a payment
condition or other obligation. The Company reserves the right to suspend delivery of any Products
until the Purchaser’s credit is back within the agreed limits or until the Purchaser complies with
such payment condition or other obligation. Delays in payment by the Purchaser of (certain
advances on) the price may give rise to a proportionate delay in the delivery term.
J. In the event of late payment, the Company is entitled to demand the dissolution of the agreement,
to proceed to extrajudicial dissolution (without prior notice of default being required), or according
to the Company’s choice to request the enforced implementation of the agreement, all without
prejudice to the Company’s right to compensation by (early) termination of the agreement. This
damage will be fixed at a lump sum of 75% of the remaining amount without prejudice to the
Company’s right to prove and claim higher compensation.
K. The Purchaser will reimburse the Company for all reasonable costs and expenses in collecting past
due accounts, including attorney fees and court costs.
L. The Company may setoff amounts owed to the Purchaser against any amounts due to the Company.
The Purchaser cannot set off any of its claims against any debt towards the Company.
8. Retention of Title.
A. To the extent allowed by law, the Company shall retain title in and to the Products until the price
(and any interest accrued thereon) of such Products has been paid in full to the Company or its
designee by or for the Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser is authorized to sell
and deliver the Products in the ordinary course of business and thereby to pass product title thereto.
This retention of title shall be for the sole purpose of securing payment of the Products, and the
Purchaser shall execute such security agreements and other documents that the Company may
reasonably request to perfect such security interest in the Products and any proceeds thereof.
B. While any Products are in the Purchaser’s possession prior to the passage of title, the Purchaser
will hold such Products in trust for the Company and keep the Products insured on the Company’s
behalf for their full replacement value against all risks to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company
(on request the Purchaser shall produce the policy of insurance to the Company).
C. To the extent title to any Product passes to the Purchaser prior to payment in full for such Product,
the Purchaser hereby grants to the Company and the Company hereby retains a security interest in
all Products, including the equivalent as designated by any statute under the laws of the Purchaser’s
local jurisdiction, sold to the Purchaser and all proceeds arising out of the sale of the Products until
Purchaser pays for such Product in full. The Purchaser agrees to sign, file, authenticate, and
authorize the signing, filing and authenticating by the Company of such financing statements and
other documents and do such other acts, as the Company may request to establish and maintain a
valid and protected security interest in the Products and proceeds.
D. The Purchaser shall ensure that, until such time as the Purchaser has made payment in full for the
Products, the Products and any proceeds related to the sale thereof can be identified and separated
easily from other products or proceeds held by the Purchaser by storing them separately and by
labelling them and keeping stock records either in writing or in an electronic format. The Purchaser
will ensure that the Products are stored at the premises in such a way that an inventory of the
Products may always be undertaken at the request of the Company.

E. If overdue sums are owed to the Company with respect to any Products, (i) the Purchaser shall not
be entitled to resell or part with possession of any Products still owned by the Company until the
Purchaser has paid in full all sums owed by it to the Company and (ii) the Purchaser shall allow the
Company and its agents, without prejudice to any other remedies and with or without prior notice,
except to the extent advance notice is required by applicable law, to take possession of such
Products or any of them and to enter for that purpose upon any premises occupied by or under
control of the Purchaser in which such Products may be. The Purchaser shall be liable to and
reimburse the Company for any and all losses or deficiencies on the sale or disposition of any
Product purchased by the Purchaser which is repossessed or repurchased by the Company for any
reason whatsoever. The Company may charge a twenty percent (20%) restocking fee in connection
with all repossessions or repurchases. The Purchaser shall also be liable for any and all discounts,
volume rebates, or other sales incentives paid to the Purchaser on Product repurchased, and all
attorney's fees, court costs, and expenses (including transportation or other costs in picking up or
moving the Product) incurred in connection with such repossession or repurchase.
9. The Company’s Limited Warranties and Limitation of Warranties and Liability.
A. The Products sold are warranted as set forth in the Company’s limited warranty policy for each
Product in effect at the time of sale.
B. The Purchaser shall not commit the Company or any of its affiliates in any manner exceeding the
Company’s applicable limited warranty as set forth in the Company’s limited warranty policy. In
the event the Purchaser offers, or if any law applicable to the Purchaser requires, a warranty in
excess of the Company’s limited warranty, the Purchaser shall assume sole responsibility for such
excess warranty.
C. The Purchaser shall supply each of its customers with a copy of the Company’s written limited
warranty, including all disclaimers and limitations thereto, relating to each Product sold to such
customer and the appropriate operations and maintenance manual provided by the Company.
D. Subject to the terms of the applicable limited warranty, no warranty applies to any Product sold as
“used,” which includes personal or substantial demonstration use by the Purchaser or Purchaser’s
affiliates, unless the Company expressly authorizes such warranty in writing. No Product warranty
shall apply if the Product is altered without the express written authorization of the Company.
E. The sole obligation of the Company, and the exclusive remedy of the Purchaser and any of its
distributors, dealers, or customers for breach of any warranty, shall be as stated in the applicable
limited warranty. The foregoing constitutes the exclusive remedies, expressly in lieu of all others,
whether available at law or in equity, for any breach of warranty.
F. If a Product is used for lease, rental, governmental or commercial purposes, the terms of Company’s
limited warranty policy relating to commercial or governmental use, as applicable, will apply.

enhancement modifications. The Purchaser agrees it will notify Company in writing any time the
Purchaser modifies or alters a Product for sale in any manner. When seeking authorization to perform

that the Product on which the warranty or product protection work is being performed has been
modified, altered, or otherwise differs from the stock Product in any way.

change, reduce or expand the list, range, portfolio or branding of a Product; provided, however, that the
Company shall notify the Purchaser, prior to shipment, of any major changes with respect to the
Products previously ordered by the Purchaser but not yet delivered, in which event the Purchaser shall
have the right to terminate its order within five (5) days after such notification by providing written
notice to the Company. The failure by the Purchaser to provide such timely written notification shall
be deemed acceptance by the Purchaser of such changes. The Company shall not be liable to the
Purchaser for any loss, damage, compensation or reimbursement arising out of changes in any Product’s
design or the withdrawal of any Product.
12. Trademarks and Service Marks.
A. The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company and/or its affiliated companies are the exclusive
