When and how often should I have my outboard engine serviced?

You should always refer to your manufacturer’s handbook for recommended service periods however generally you should have your outboard serviced as follows:

1st service after a running time of 10 hours.

Every 100hrs or annually You should have your engine serviced at least once a year to protect against corrosion and salt build up as well as replacing wear and tear parts. This will prolong its life and ensure it is running efficiently.

End of season service At the end of the season your engine should be winterised. This is where the engine is inhibited to prevent seizing over winter. This will help keep the engine in tip top condition for the years to come.

To book your outboard service please call 01489 556800 or email service@rib-shop.com
