Product Warranty and Claims

Specialty Marine Limited Warranty

Your warranty is activated 5 business days after your product is shipped, not from the date you begin using your products. It is therefore imperative to file any warranty claims as soon as an issue arises , keep defective products for Specialty Marine's review, and provide adequate requested information/images. Waiting to file a claim can put you at risk of falling outside of your warranty window and the claim being denied. There is no pre-dating of warranties, ie: the warranty submission date will be used as the date of discovery.

Failure to abide by the Care and Maintenance Instructions will void warranty.

If purchasing for resale, it is your responsibility to inform your customers of the are and maintenance required for these products.
