Centurion Boats debuts extended-warranty program

Centurion Boats released a new Centurion Shield Five Year Warranty for 2014.

The program extends a former warranty that lasted only one year. The new warranty program has been in development for many months, but was released Dec. 24.

Customers that have purchased a 2014 model Centurion boat will be automatically retrofitted into the new warranty program with the extended coverage.

“Boat warranties are an important part of the boat purchasing decision, and this new warranty shows Centurion’s commitment to quality materials and craftsmanship,” Centurion vice president of worldwide sales Bryan Holland said in a statement. “It’s the most comprehensive boat warranty in the watersports towboat market today. We are very excited that our factory can support this kind of consumer protection program that puts Centurion ahead of all the other brands. Our dealers are already raving about it.”

The Centurion Shield Five Year Warranty is in addition to Centurion’s lifetime warranty on the deck and hull. It includes workmanship, parts, hardware and materials, including the gelcoat, upholstery, flooring, instrumentation, audio and electronic systems.
