Search Consumer Protection Database

Hints for getting the most out of the BoatU.S. Consumer Protection database:
  • The number of complaints per company may reflect market share and is not to be taken as a company rating.
  • The database contains a limited number of reports about smaller companies, marinas and dealers simply because fewer consumers buy their products or utilize their services.
  • The database contains some complaints dating from the early 1980s and earlier, but the majority are more recent.
  • Searches can involve a single model and problem or the entire spectrum of reports about a specific make or model. For help with a criterion, place your cursor on or click the button beside the criterion.

The database will be updated periodically, so visit often!
