Boat Lemon Law
There is a “Boat Lemon Law” which applies to
all kinds of consumer boats, sail boats, powered boats, jet skis, and
other kinds of consumer watercraft in every state and US Territory.
this “Under this federal Boat Lemon Law,” if you have a defect in your boat which
is covered by a written warranty from the manufacturer or the dealer, all you have to do is
give them a reasonable chance to get it fixed and they must do so. If
they fail to fix a defect (either within a reasonable amount of time or within a reasonable number of chances), or if you have an unreasonable quantity or
number of defects, then you have the right to make them take the boat
back and give you back your money. You may even be able to make them replace your water craft.
It does not matter if the defect relates to the hull, onboard equipment,
or what part of the boat is defective or has problems. There are really only three
questions to answer:
- Was the defect-malfunction-problem covered
by the manufacturer’s or dealer’s warranty?
- Did you give them a reasonable chance to
fix all the boat’s defects?
- Did they fail to get everything fixed within
a reasonable number of chances, or within a reasonable amount of time?
If you can answer “yes”,
then you probably have a lemon boat and you have legal rights.
However, be careful. You only have a limited
amount of time in which to file a case to protect
your legal rights, or you can lose them forever — and be stuck.
In many states, the time limit can be two years but sometimes it can be just one year. So act quickly before you lose your rights - call us on our Toll Free Lemon Boat Hotline, 1.888.331.6422.
