Mercury Marine has introduced a program that gives buyers of new outboard motors the chance to get five years of extended coverage.

The 2018 Go With 5 promotion will run until March 31 of this year.

“Kicking off the new year with an opportunity like this is good for our dealers and our customers,” Ross Stewart, Mercury Marine senior director of sales, said in a statement. “Giving the consumer five years of extended coverage will give them peace of mind as they consider a new outboard-powered boat or the opportunity to repower and rejuvenate their current vessel.”

The Go With 5 program includes three years of standard warranty, plus two years of Gold-level Mercury product protection. The promotion includes 4-stroke engines ranging from 2.5 to 350 hp and 2-stroke OptiMax models from 75 to 250 hp, including the ProXS.

The motor must be manufactured in the current calendar year or the four immediately preceding years. The coverage is effective for eligible portable engine and repower sales, excluding boat packages.
