When we say we only use genuine quality parts for all our boat repairs and services, what do we mean, and why is it important to you?
When it’s time to repair your boat, you face the option of choosing a mechanic who will use genuine parts or one who will opt for aftermarket solutions. Similarly, you may know what part your Mercury outboard engine repair will require, and you may be searching for aftermarket or even second-hand products online for your boat repair yourself.

Aftermarket parts are replacement parts that are built by someone other than your original part manufacturer. While these aftermarket products can be a good option in some cases, not all aftermarket products are the same. In addition, your parts may vary in quality and design depending on where they are sourced. Finally, if these parts are not certified, it can be challenging to predict their quality and durability at the time of replacement.
This is especially true for second-hand boating parts readily available on eBay and other e-commerce sites. Purchasing second-hand boat parts put the owner at risk, as warranty and consumer law are not covered in private online sales.

For aftermarket products, many come with little to no warranty. Although it is illegal for manufacturers to void any warranty under Australian Consumer Law, it may be more costly and time-consuming to go through the relevant consumer frameworks and insurance policies to receive a replacement. And after all this, you’re back to where you started.
However, using genuine parts on your mercury outboard engine from the original manufacturer will ensure your warranty remains unaffected and gives you peace of mind your boat parts are consistent with the rest of the engine and running well. Choosing an expert boating mechanic for your mercury outboard engine maintenance means that you can be one hundred percent confident your boat is in the hands of an expert.
