We can book services locally, or put you in touch with your nearest service agent.

Servicing

Like any vehicle, it is important to keep your Sealegs amphibious boat servicing up-to-date. Our comprehensive portfolio of services are designed to ensure you spend more time out on the water, knowing your Sealegs will not let you down. This keeps the joy of Sealegs alive.

Sealegs services can be done at the factory in Auckland, New Zealand, or by one of our many service partners across the globe. Our partners have been trained specifically in the maintenance, service and care of a Sealegs boat, to ensure that all of our boats are in good hands when it's time for their service. Our outboard servicing is completed by our partners who are industry leaders in outboard care.

Routine inspection and maintenance is an essential activity to prolong the life of your Sealegs Amphibious boat, outboard motor and accessories, as well as being important for user safety. The service schedule is determined by the frequency of use, application, and the environment in which the boat operates.

The Sealegs service schedule consists of an ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ service. A ‘P’ check is a pre-delivery check, which is undertaken by Sealegs or Sealegs representative prior to customer delivery. A service placard is placed inside the hatch of the console of each Sealegs boat on completion, and this is used to track the next scheduled service.

Below is a chart describing the timing of each type of Sealegs service. The intervals should be considered on a "whichever comes first" basis. For example, if your outboard hours exceed 50 hours before you have owned your Sealegs for a year, book in for an 'A' service as soon as possible. As a rule, every Sealegs amphibious boat must be serviced in line with the schedule below to maintain warranty.
