Raytheon Adopts New Warranty Program
Raytheon Marine Company of Manchester, N.H., has announced the adoption of the industry's first two-year warranty covering every product in its marine electronics line.
The new limited warranty covers all parts for a period of two years and labor for one year from the date of original installation, regardless whether the installation is commercial or recreational.
In most cases involving on-board equipment service, Raytheon will also assume travel costs of its authorized service representatives for up to 100 highway miles.
According to Richard V. Warden, president of Raytheon Marine Company, the new warranty is "far and away, the best offered by any manufacturer. We feel that the best way to show our customers and potential customers the confidence we have in the quality of all our products is to give them a guarantee that we're willing to bet money on — one that's better than what the competition offers.
"With the number of manufacturers in the marine electronics field increasing constantly," Mr.
Warden said, "established industry leaders like Raytheon have an obligation to the boating public to set standards of performance and reliability that others can strive for." Raytheon, a pioneer in the development of marine electronics and a leading manufacturer for more than 50 years, offers lines of Fathometer® depth sounders, VHF/FM and SSB radiotelephones, Mariners Pathfinder® radars, and various navigation aids and loud hailers. The company has more than 350 authorized dealers nationwide.
