Genmar warranty troubles....Any Ideas?

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

My friend bought a Hydra Sports boat back in 2002, and just noticed a soft spot on his deck just left of the center console. He spoke with a few dealers and they said Genmar most likely will honor the warranty.

 

He contacted Genmar and they got back to him yesterday saying they are not honoring OMC product warranties anymore b/c of the current situation. (Bankruptcy I believe.)

 

He has a 10 year warranty on the hull and this could be a manufactures defect. When He purchased the boat NEW in 2002 they already owned OMC so we think they should honor the warranty.

 

Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

If you are owed money from any Genmar company for ANY REASON, you may file a claim in the Genmar Bankruptcy, or the Bankruptcy of that particular company.( case numbers below)

 

 

http://www.uscourts.gov/rules/BK_Forms_Pendin...

 

If you have a cause that is not specific money related, and involves any corrupt or unscrupulous action or actions by a Genmar Company, Rep, Dealer, on a sale , warranty, etc, you can file a adversary proceeding, which starts a separate action from the bankruptcy case

 

 

in the same court.

I would bring it to the dealer that he purchased the boat from. I would be very surprised if they did not honor it. I had a minor issue with my Seaswirl Striper and they took care of it very quickly and I did not pay a cent.

Is the dealer he bought it from still around and still a HS dealer?

I would start there, they should have the skils to repair it, and they should stand behind it.

Trying to go through Genmar would be a nightmare, I would think.

 

It's interesting to me that he has this soft spot, I didn't think that they still used wood in their decks.Did your friend penetrate the deck at all?

 

You could check on tht, I bet there's some threads on the whole issue there.

The dealer he purchased from in 2002 still exists, but is no longer a Hydra Sports Dealer. The hull is a 1999 leftover bought new in 2002. I mentioned the Better Business Bureau and Consumer Affairs to him I think he will be taking those steps. Talking with people I work with, they claim to have fast responses from both groups.
