KENNESAW, Ga. - Yamaha Outboards has kicked off its Fun Starts Here sales promotion, the manufacturer said in a statement yesterday. The sales promotion is effective Dec. 1, 2005 through March 31, 2006.
The promotion, available through authorized, participating Yamaha outboard dealers, offers retail buyers, at no cost to the consumer, their choice of either a 3-year Y.E.S. extended service contract worth up to $2,600, or a cash rebate check of up to $1,000 for eligible models purchased.
Dale Barnes, Yamaha's marketing manager, emphasized the promotion isn't just for boat and sports shows.
“This promotion provides participating dealers a great solution they can use right now to close more sales as the holiday season hits its peak,” Barnes said. “Even better, this exciting promotion continues through the end of March 2006 which will allow participating Yamaha dealers to take full advantage of this opportunity during the heart of boat show selling season.”
Eligible models are new (unused, not previously warranty registered) Yamaha 30 to 250 horsepower four-stroke models and Yamaha 150 to 300 HPDI two-stroke models only, and must have been manufactured with a model year of 2004, 2005 or have been manufactured since April 2005. The motors must be sold by authorized, participating dealers by March 31, 2006.
To make this promotion easy for dealers to administer, the Yamaha Y.D.S. warranty registration system will automatically provide authorized, participating dealers the ability to request either a three year Y.E.S. benefit or cash rebate check benefit for eligible units during the warranty registration process. The dealer participation cost for either the Y.E.S. contract benefit or the cash rebate check benefit, selected during the automated registration option of this promotion, has been minimized to 15 percent, which will be reduced from the dealership co-op accrual, provided sufficient funds are available.
Fun Starts Here Promotion information and Dealer Participation Forms have already been sent to Yamaha outboard dealers nationwide, Barnes said.
