Here at Hobie we’re enthusiasts like you. We know all about early morning fishing trips, family time at the beach, or summer time on the lake. We love being out there, and we’re sure you do too. Our goal is to keep you out on the water having fun for many years to come.
Rest assured that when you purchase your new 2019 model year Hobie from an authorized Hobie dealer it comes with a 3-Year Warranty (2-year Warranty for inflatable kayaks and SUPs). For prior year models, your Hobie comes with a 2-Year Warranty (1-Year Warranty on all SUPs). The Warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, improper storage, or running into stuff. The Warranty covers defects in the materials, manufacturing and design.
To Obtain Warranty Service
Within 30 days of discovering a defect, take your Hobie product, along with proof of purchase (sales receipt or registration card) to the authorized Hobie dealer from whom you purchased your boat, unless you have moved or are traveling. In that case, take it to the nearest authorized Hobie dealer.
Disclaimer – Product Life Cycle
Every Hobie has a useful product life cycle. The length of that life cycle will vary depending on multiple factors including; the construction and materials, storage and transport, maintenance and care, and the amount and type of use your Hobie is subjected to over its life. We have been engineering fun on the water since 1950. However, we can’t engineer our products to survive improper usage, such as incorrect storage or transport, exposure to excessive heat or sunlight, or collisions with your garage. Whatever the case may be, we'll always point you in the right direction.
