Yamaha Marine Group has launched two retail promotions to help dealers through the slump. Both promotions are for outboards sold between Jan. 1 and March 31.

“Yamaha is adding a high level of support at the retail level during boat-show season," said Phil Dyskow, Yamaha Marine Group president, in a statement.

The first promotion, Repower Now, offers two options. Consumers can choose “Zero Zero” financing, which means no interest and no payment until Jan. 1, 2010, on approved credit. Or customers can receive a credit toward the purchase of Yamaha rigging components and/or dealer installation services.

The second promotion “Two Ways to Save,” offers either a 36-month Yamaha Extended Service contract for eligible outboards or a credit toward goods and/or services at the authorized participating dealer that sold the outboard.
