ALL INCIDENTAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARE EXCLUDED FROM THIS WARRANTY. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH HEREIN, THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

Limited Lifetime Transferable Structural Hull Warranty:
STINGRAY Boat Co. (hereafter "STINGRAY") warrants the HULL against structural defects in material and workmanship for a period of ten (10) years from the date of purchase or eleven (11) years from the date of manufacture, whichever period elapses first. The warranty provided in this section is to the original retail owner only and applies only if the boat is purchased from an authorized STINGRAY Dealer. During the warranty period described above, STINGRAY will repair or replace, at its option, the fiberglass HULL if it is unfit or unsafe for general use as a pleasure craft under normal conditions and, in Stingray's discretion, is determined to be structurally defective in material or workmanship. For purposes of this warranty, the HULL is defined as the part of the boat in contact with the water when at rest. The warranty provided in this section is subject to all limitations and conditions contained herein. The remaining term of this HULL Warranty, up to five (5) years, may be transferred to the second owner if, within 60 days of purchase, the new owner registers the transfer with an authorized STINGRAY Dealer and pays a seventy five US dollar ($75 USD) transfer fee. Visit stingrayboats.com/transfer for further details on transferability.
3-Year Limited Osmotic Hull Blister Warranty:
STINGRAY warrants against hull blistering caused by osmosis that is discovered and reported to STINGRAY during the first 3 years of ownership (subject to the prorated schedule below). The warranty provided in this section applies to the original retail owner only and is VOID if the original factory gelcoat surface has been altered by excessive sanding, scraping, sandblasting, or accident repair. A marine barrier coating with proper surface preparation is required if the boat is bottom painted or if the boat is left in fresh or salt water for more than 60 days in any 90 day period. In the event of osmotic blistering, STINGRAY will, at its option, repair or cause to be repaired any hull damage and apply a layer of marine barrier coating to the affected surface area(s). Osmotic hull blisters are defined as those blisters, larger than one-eighth inch in diameter and with a depth greater than one-sixteenth inch, which occur on the hull below the waterline. Repairs will be performed (at STINGRAY'S discretion) by the selling dealer, a designated service center, or the STINGRAY factory. The following prorated schedule of parts and labor will be covered by STINGRAY: Blistering discovered and reported to STINGRAY less than one (1) year from date of purchase - 100%; between one (1) and two (2) years from date of purchase - 66%; between two (2) and three (3) years from date of purchase - 33%. All osmotic hull repairs must be pre-approved by STINGRAY prior to any work being performed. Transportation cost is the boat owner's responsibility. Reimbursement shall be limited to one repair, not to exceed eighty US dollars ($80 USD) per foot of hull length resting below the waterline prior to prorating.

Under This Warranty:
STINGRAY'S obligation is limited, at STINGRAY'S option, to repairing or replacing those covered components deemed by STINGRAY to be defective within the warranty period because of faulty materials or workmanship. No claim for breach of this warranty will cause the sale of the boat to be canceled or rescinded. STINGRAY may, at its option, provide for the repair or replacement of a covered component by an authorized STINGRAY dealership or service center or, STINGRAY may make necessary repairs under this warranty at the STINGRAY factory. Return transportation costs of any kind are the responsibility of the owner. The liability of STINGRAY shall in no event exceed the actual cash (NADA) value of the covered item at the time of the claim. OWNER REGISTRATION AND LIMITED WARRANTY form shall be presented to the dealer when owner requests service. This warranty is limited expressly to the terms and conditions herein set forth and cannot be modified or amended except by written agreement between STINGRAY and owner. STINGRAY reserves the right to improve its products and does not guarantee the availability of all product features and options as displayed in STINGRAY publications. STINGRAY further reserves the right to change specifications and prices without obligation to incorporate improvements in boats manufactured prior to such improvements. Dealers are not agents of STINGRAY. STINGRAY does not authorize any person to modify or create for it any obligation or liability. The laws of the State of South Carolina govern the interpretation and administration of this warranty contract. Owner agrees that any suit or claim against STINGRAY shall be administrated or litigated in the State of South Carolina, County of Florence.
The parties agree that the 1-Year Limited General Warranty is subject to the acceptance of this non-disparagement provision. STINGRAY boat owner agrees not to make any disparaging or adverse remarks about Stingray Boat Company or any of its products, which may negatively affect the Company or its reputation. For purposes of this Section, "disparage" shall mean any negative statement, whether written, oral, or published on social media about Stingray Boat Company and its products. The parties agree and acknowledge that this non-disparagement provision is a material term of this Agreement, the absence of which would have resulted in a refusal to enter into this Agreement. The parties agree that if a breach of the non-disparagement provision were to occur, it would be difficult to determine actual damages; thus the parties agree that the rescission of the 1-Year Limited General Warranty is a fair and reasonable estimate to compensate for the damages that would accrue if a breach were to occur.
IN NO EVENT SHALL STINGRAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO EXPENSES FOR GASOLINE, MECHANICS TRAVEL TIME, LAUNCH AND HAUL-OUT CHARGES, TOWING CHARGES, RENTAL FOR LIKE PRODUCT WHILE SERVICE IS BEING PERFORMED, TRAVEL, LODGING, LOSS OR DAMAGE TO PERSONAL PROPERTY, LOSS OF USE OF PRODUCT, LOSS OF TIME OR INCONVENIENCE. STINGRAY DEALERS ARE NOT AGENTS OF STINGRAY BOAT COMPANY.
