Yamaha debuts outboard sales promotion

The company said the promotion applies to eligible new select Yamaha 2.5- to 300-hp four-stroke outboards.

Yamaha Marine Group announced a new sales promotion related to the purchase of an eligible new select Yamaha outboard during the first quarter.

“The ‘Legendary Reliability’ sales event gives customers the opportunity to boost the purchase value of some of Yamaha’s most popular models early in the season,” division manager of marketing Dale Barnes said in a statement. “For those in the market for new outboard power in 2016, now is the time to buy and take advantage of this incredible offer.”

The company said the promotion applies to eligible new select Yamaha 2.5- to 300-hp four-stroke outboards.

It provides a purchasing consumer with a choice of five years of warranty protection (three years of Yamaha limited warranty coverage, along with an additional two-year Yamaha extended service plan) or a credit on select eligible models of as much as $1,500, based on MSRP, toward the purchase of goods and/or services available at the authorized participating Yamaha outboard dealer that sold the engine at no extra cost to the consumer.

The event is effective for eligible new select outboards purchased and warranty-registered between Jan. 1 and March 31.
