KOBELT » Quality, Durability, Service

Please watch this Kobelt video to get a sense of their commitment to quality, durability and service. It may be a bit old but it is the best thing which we could find to show you their total commitment to their products and the service they provide. More videos are available for viewing on our about Kobelt page. Kobelt has provided us with products of the highest quality and service beyond compare for all the years we have been in business. It is for these reasons that we stand behind their products 100%.


Kobelt also provides parts for all of their products. This is a great benefit to keep your investment going for many years after your purchase. Many of the competitive manufacturers do not provide this type of service and expect you to purchase a new product when just a small part need to be replaced. Providing replacement parts are Kobelt’s commitment to service after the sale.


Please note that the video says that Kobelt’s warranty is 5 years which has now been changed to 2 years. Even though their warranty period has been shortened, it is still considered to be one of the best warranties in the marine industry.
