Knowing which part you need and the best boat parts to buy is essential to your success in marine repairs and maintenance, if you are intending to do this yourself, and to your continued boating enjoyment. Whether you need new outboard parts, watercraft parts, small engine parts, boat parts or accessories.
As we all know, when it comes to boats and engines something will eventually go wrong. Things break down, quit working, and stop doing what they’re supposed to be doing. Inevitable but nevertheless frustrating, and now it’s up to you to fix what has gone wrong. You may well be a dedicated boat lover but this doesn’t necessarily translate into you being a boat mechanic, and so you may not know exactly how to fix the problem.
Where do you start? As a proud boat owner you will probably be torn between finding the best deal whilst still ensuring that it is a quality part you are buying. To do this you could find yourself wasting a lot of time calling different shops, driving around, and wading through the huge amount of information available on the Internet.
Yes, you probably have an owner’s manual to refer to, which is not a bad idea, but this too requires time and effort. Why go to all this trouble when there is a far better and easier solution.

The New Jeanneau & Prestige Warranty Promise
“Our total quality control system tracks a product through the entire production process and beyond. From laboratory tests of each batch of resin to tank testing to customer satisfaction questionnaires and frequent supplier reviews, we continually seek ways to improve our boats.”
To back this up, and driven by our desire to give customers more peace of mind, the general warranty which up until now was for 2 years, has been extended. As of 1st September 2018 the new extended international warranties are as shown below, and are applicable to all Jeanneau boats that were handed over from that date wherever owners might be boating, they can now benefit from this worldwide coverage through our international dealer network.
3 YEARS – GENERAL WARRANTY
This exclusive manufacturer’s warranty covers parts, labour and the majority of components. Jeanneau dealer network is well trained to handle owners’ requests in the most efficient manner possible.
5 YEARS – BLISTER WARRANTY
The use of a specific barrier coat resin minimizes hull blistering caused by hydrolysis. This know-how allows Jeanneau to offer a five-year warranty against this occurrence.
7 YEARS – STRUCTURAL WARRANTY
Due to their naval design expertise and unique industrial savoir-faire, Jeanneau is now able to warrant the structure of their new boats for seven years. The repair of manufacturing defects on the hull and deck, as recognized by technical services, are covered by this new warranty.*
