Warranty Information

Taco Marine products are all carefully tested and inspected to ensure optimal levels of performance.

Taco Marine warrants to the original purchaser of its products that should any product be proven defective in material or workmanship within one year of original purchase, they will be repaired or replaced without charge, subject to the performance guarantees stated in this warranty.

The Taco Marine one year limited warranty excludes Taco Marine Rub Rail, Taco Marine Sport Fishing and Zwaardvis pedestal products.

Five Year Limited Warranty: Taco Marine Rub Rail Products
Taco Marine warrants to the original purchaser of its rub rail products that should any product be proven defective in material or workmanship within five years of original purchase, they will be repaired or replaced without charge, subject to the performance guarantees stated in this warranty.

Taco Marine guarantees the performance of these products as follows:

  • Aluminum Products are guaranteed against fading of anodized finish, corrosion, except for non-anodized surfaces resulting from cutting, machining, tight radius bending, scratching, metal to metal contact or other exposure of the base aluminum. This guarantee does not extend to corrosion resulting from galvanic reaction (improper electrical grounding). Slight fading or dullness of finish over time is a normal occurrence of weathering and does not constitute a defect.

  • Vinyl Extrusions are guaranteed against significant fading, cracking or swelling and significant reduction of plasticity, modulus, tensile strength and dimensional integrity. Slight color variation is a normal occurrence of weathering and does not constitute a defect.

  • Stainless Steel Products are guaranteed against loss of luster, corrosion and rust, except that resulting from cutting, machining, scratching or metal to metal contact. This guarantee does not extend to corrosion or rust from galvanic reaction (improper electrical grounding). Slight luster variation over time is a normal occurrence of weathering and does not constitute a defect.

This warranty does not apply to any product that has been damaged through alteration, mishandling, misuse, neglect or accident, unless otherwise stipulated. This warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied and no persons or representative is authorized to assume for the company any other liability in connection with the sale of this product.
