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 – 20 hours.

Every 100hrs or annually: You should have your outboard 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 reliable running through the season.

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