Mercury Product Protection

Mercury Product Protection is an extended service contract for your Mercury and MerCruiser engine and MotorGuide Trolling Motor that covers certain expenses caused by defects in materials and workmanship after the Mercury Limited Warranty expires.

Why Mercury Product Protection?

  • Provides up to eight years of total coverage for your engine. (Mercury Limited Warranty + Product Protection)

  • A factory-backed extended service contract, Mercury Product Protection is administered 100% by Mercury Marine 

  • Is non-declining coverage. The value of the coverage does not decrease over the life of the contract.

  • Is transferable to subsequent owners, which typically increases the resale value of your engine. 

  • Must be purchased before your engine’s Mercury Limited Warranty expires. Once purchased, Mercury Product Protection coverage takes effect the day the Mercury Limited Warranty expires.

Two Levels of Coverage

  • Gold Level coverage protects against mechanical failures.
  • Platinum Level coverage protects against mechanical and electrical failures.

Coverage can be purchased within the Factory Mercury Limited Warranty period as long the model was originally manufactured in the current and four proceeding calendar years. Coverage amount adheres to the suggested list price for your Mercury product at the time of the original sale and not the current ABOS Blue Book value. The plan is available for consumers that are residents of the United States or Canada and boat in the United States or Canada. Engines must be used for recreational purposes and have fewer than 500 accumulated engine hours (at time of purchase). Our contract specifically excludes any commercial professional, not-for-profit, work-related, local, state, or federal government use, or used product imported from outside the United States or Canada. You can check to see if your engine is eligible for a Mercury Product Protection Plan by contacting your local Mercury dealer.
