Here’s something to blog about! We are now providing an additional year of Platinum MPP (Mercury Product Protection) coverage Free of Charge in addition to the standard 2-year factory warranty on all 2017 program year Verado 400R consumer performance outboards. This represents a retail value of over $2,000!
Best of all, consumers benefit from having 3 full years of comprehensive factory coverage, which is transferrable to a subsequent owner, making it easier for them to sell their boat and upgrade to a newer one.
Up to 2 years of additional MPP coverage is available for purchase through an authorized Mercury dealer. 400 ROS competition outboards, which are sold without a warranty, are exempt from the program.
Consumers will receive detailed information regarding the extended 400R warranty coverage upon product registration.
We’re pleased to offer this added protection so that our 400R consumers can extend their enjoyment of the intuitive design, revolutionary performance, efficiency, and reliability of our flagship outboad.
