What's it all about?

The theft of Outboard engines has long been an issue for the boating and insurance industries and one that needed to be addressed.

To that end two of the biggest names in the UK marine industry, Yamaha Motor (UK) Ltd and leading boat insurance specialist Haven Knox-Johnston have jointly announced the launch of a new boat insurance policy “Yamaha Marine Cover Insurance” available exclusively through specialist pleasure craft broker RJP Marine.


What are the benefits?

The policy will reward Yamaha outboard owners and in particular those with engines fitted with Y-Cop where several exclusive feature benefits apply including:

  • Reduced Premiums
  • No Excess and no loss of No. Claims Bonus in the unlikely event of the theft of an engine fitted with the Y-Cop System.
  • New for old outboard replacement on engines fitted with Y-Cop up to 3 years old
  • No Double Excess on underwater gear.

How often have you wondered why cars are protected from theft or unauthorised use by clever electronics, when outboard engines never are?

Well, as you might expect, the first manufacturer to recognise and act on that widespread thought is Yamaha, with the introduction of its innovative new Y-COP (Yamaha Customer Outboard Protection) system. And now for 2012 model year all new fuel injection, four-stroke outboard models from 30hp to 350hp will feature Y-COP. This simple, easy to use and effective system – with its neat remote control - locks and unlocks the engine at the push of a button. Just like your car in fact! It’s another industry first for Yamaha – and more proof that when it comes to turning customer needs into practical action, Yamaha has no equal.
