From 1st April 2017 all Tohatsu manufactured outboards sold for pleasure use have a 7 year warranty. Outboards sold for pleasure use prior to 1/4/17 had a 5 year warranty. For warranty details on outboards for commercial use please contact your local dealer.


On the sale of any Tohatsu outboard motor the "Tohatsu Authorised Dealer" must fill out the Online Pre-Delivery Inspection and Warranty Registration correctly.
