Anyone Ever Use Malibu Warranty to Fix Sagging Floor?

Recommended Posts

Eagleboy99

I am the original owner and there are some sagging areas in my Response LX floor.  Anyone ever try to get the lifetime warranty  to repair it? Might be a good time for carpet renew (or imagine....  Seadeck!)

My '99 Sunsetter LX has a sagging floor, particularly on the starboard side under the rear seat.  I am the third owner, and didn't know to ask about the warranty transfer.  If I were the original owner, I would definitely give malibu a call. 

If I were to bother with fixing it myself, I think I would fit a piece of foam to the depression and glass over it.  I see no reason to disturb the floor, which seems solid enough, just depressed a little.

I don’t think this will be covered under the lifetime hull warranty as it is not structural or a part of the hull. Our previous boat had this and we had it fixed but we were still in our bow to stern warranty period.

Interesting...  I might just call to find out.  Not a big deal, really.  Heck I am the only one who notices this sort of thing; wife and kids could care less.

Here's what my warranty says:

"Malibu Boats West, Inc. warrants to the Original Retail Purchaser that the hull, deck,

liner, upholstery frames, and stringers on every new boat manufactured shall, under

normal authorized use, be free from structural defects for as long as the original

purchaser owns the boat. Malibu Boats West Inc. or its selling dealer will, without

charge, repair or replace at Malibu's option, any boat or portion thereof proven to its

satisfaction to be in defect during the above warranty period."


A sagging floor is likely a "structural defect" but I am no marine surveryor.  But I can find one who would say that!  :)  I kinda like the part about replacing the entire boat.  LOL

@Eagleboy99:  My friend did several years ago, new carpet was part of the deal.  New floor is doing well for him.

Thanks for the info.  Might investigate further.  I wonder who foots the transport bill?

I expect they would pay a local shop to do the job.  No need to send the boat anywhere.

I recall reading here and elsewhere of warranty claims by original owners and Malibu did indeed fix the problem...lucky you, new carpet!
