Braff Injury Law Practice
In California, boats and watercraft are protected under the California Lemon Law. Like other vehicles, such as cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, and motorcycles, California Lemon Law gives protection to all types of boats and watercraft.
A purchased or leased boat can make your life miserable if it fails to conform to the claims made at the time of purchase or lease. These non-conformities can affect the safety, use, and value of your watercraft.
A Lemon Boat Compromises Its Safety, Use, and Value
After you have purchased or leased a new or a used boat, if it is persistently causing problems which could not be resolved, despite many repair attempts by the manufacturer or dealership, the boat or watercraft may be deemed a lemon. The moment you discover that your watercraft has some substantial problems which makes it unsafe to use, you must inform the manufacturer or dealership about it.
