Yamaha Certified Pre-Owned Program
An industry first. The dealer does a 35 point manufacturer sanctioned inspection and offers a 1 year warranty. Speaks for the reliability of Yamahas.

No such thing as free lunch. That just means that dealerships do the same inspection they normally do except now it comes with a one year warranty that will have it's priced tacked onto it. GM did the same with their certified used program. It cost the dealer something like $300. That was marked up and added to sale price.

Yamaha wants 350 per year to participate in the program and 350 per ski that we would sell if we take part in it.....

Well, seeing the fact that most who buy skis used would like the warranty and will still be cheaper than buying new, it would be a plausible option. Actually speaks volume to the dependability factor. No one said the lunch was free, just cheaper with less risk.

If buying used then they should just offer the extended warranty and allow customers to decide if they want to purchase it or not. Instead the dealer will tack on 5-600 dollars to make up for the price they had to pay for it. I would rather not pay $500 for a one year warranty. Chance of a failure is very little.

Another point of view is this. Present options are:
1. Buy a new ski
2. Buy a used ski from a private buyer with no warranty( also can find one that may have a leftover warranty and option to extend)
3 Buy a used ski from an authorized dealer with no warranty and possibly adding 1 year of used YES for 899 and 2 years for 999. Called the Yamaha YES dept. and got those quotes.
Another option now is to buy a used certified Pre owned ski that is dealer inspected. More secure than a private sale and less guess work hopefully as to genuine condition. Add financing and warranty. May be appealing to some as compared to buying a used ski elsewhere as say Craigslist. There are many who bought used skis to have them fail in the first year who might disagree and wish it was warrantied.
Sure there are other options, but further distract from the point. Point of my first post is to show that a manufacturer is even willing to offer a certified Pre-owned program, ANY warranty on a used ski... and add financing options.
