Warranty Program

KingFisher warrants to the original purchaser that any main seam weld (hull side to bottom chine, transom and center keel) on boats manufactured by KingFisher shall be free from structural defects in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the hull*. This Warranty applies to normal, non-commercial use and service, and is subject to all subsequent sections of this document**. KingFisher further warrants that for a period of one year from date of delivery, the interior finishing of each new boat will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal non-commercial use and service. At no time shall the cost of a warranty repair exceed the current market value of a boat.

*Lifetime refers to a period not to exceed (20) years from the date of manufacture.

Lifetime warranty applies to the original owner of the boat. The lifetime warranty can be transferred to a second owner for a fee of $750.00. This transfer must be registered at KingFisher upon completion of a warranty registration form. Transfer of warranty must be accompanied by current photos of the front, sides, bottom and serial number of the boat. KingFisher reserves the right to accept or refuse the transfer of warranty at its discretion.

**Commercial Use coverage is limited to major structural defects in the hull for a period of one year from date of delivery. There is no commercial warranty for interior finishing and KingFisher extends no other warranties to boats in commercial service.

In addition, commercial coverage is subject to all subsequent sections of this document. This warranty is valid and enforceable only if the warranty registration card provided at the time of the sale is returned to KingFisher within 15 days of the date of delivery. This warranty applies to, and is enforceable only by the original retail purchaser, who has completed and returned the warranty registration card as provided above, when the boat is sold through
an authorized KingFisher dealer.

Conditions

In order to obtain performance of the obligations under the foregoing warranties, the owner must promptly (in no event later than thirty (30) days after the discovery of the defect) give notice of the defect to the factory. It is then the responsibility of the registered owner to make arrangements with the authorized dealer service center or the factory to take the corrective action and perform the repairs. This has to be done within 15 days of the reported claim. Failure to do so could result in an unsatisfactory resolution or even denial of the warranty claim. KingFisher assumes no responsibility for damage to attached parts or systems if the boat is not removed from service after the initial problem is found. Since this warranty extends only to original retail purchaser, the registered owner must be prepared to present the original sales receipt and show current ownership when submitting a claim. Repairs will be made at our facility without charge to the customer if the repair qualifies for warranty under the guidelines of this program. The responsibility of KingFisher under this warranty program is limited to the repair or replacement of the defective components at its option. It is the responsibility of the registered owner to transport the boat to and from any repair facility for any warranty repairs. The buyer accepts this warranty and the limitations and disclaimers set forth herein as part of the purchase of the KingFisher product or part to which this warranty applies.

At the expiration of the applicable warranty period all such liability shall terminate.
