Yamaha Marine Group announced the “Reliable Choice Sales Event,” a new promotion for buyers in the first quarter.

“The ‘Reliable Choice Sales Event’ is the perfect way to start the 2014 boat show season,” Yamaha Marine Group marketing division manager Dale Barnes said in a statement. “The value added through this promotion is substantial, giving customers even more incentive to buy now and be ready to enjoy their time on the water this spring.”

The promotion applies to eligible new Yamaha 2.5- to 350-hp four-stroke outboards. It offers customers two options: five years of warranty protection — three years of Yamaha limited warranty coverage, along with an additional two-year Yamaha Extended Service, or Y.E.S. plan — or a credit on select eligible models of as much as $2,000, based on MSRP, toward the purchase of goods and services at the authorized participating Yamaha Outboard dealer that sold the outboard.

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