    No Lifetime Hull Warranty?

    Or is there? Recently heard it was something like 5 years. Anyone know? Thanks.

    I believe it is lifetime for original owner and transferable to others for ten year total.

    I believe that hull warranties are good but not as important as some make them. You just don't hear of hull trouble after the initial few years.

    Be more concerned with engine warranties and extended warranties and their transferability! The engine makes or breaks a used boat deal!

    If you have a boat with a great hull warranted forever and it has a bad engine and rusted trailer... guess what ... you have nothing!

    Remember... on a $55k boat the engine and rigging is $20k, trailer $5-8k...electronics $3-4k+...TM...$1.5k pumps, batteries etc $2k ... seats, carpet, hardware. etc etc .... the hull is probably $15k if that!

    Mine has a life time warranty, but like stated, you only need one when the product is made like crap.

    Back when I was trying to decide what to buy, I was told buy a dealer that does not carry Phoenix that they have no warranty of any kind. I consulted the factory, who confirmed this was not true; the hull has a lifetime warranty.

    When dealers tell such lies (he was likely lying, because I caught him in a few others during our conversation), it does nothing but hurt them. This dealer is relatively close to my house, and now I would never consider buying anything from them.

    Thanks guys! I also was able to confirm with the regional rep that it is life, 10 yr transfer. As someone mentioned, you likely won't need it with a superior-built boat, but good to have just in case (and means that the mfgr has confidence in their product!).
