Your outboard motor engine service is essential to good maintenance of your engine, as well as a manufacturers' requirement to maintain the warranty on your outboard engine.
As a Suzuki Marine outboard motor authorised service dealer we operate a main dealers workshop with all the specialist tools and software required to ensure your engine is given all the care and attention you would expect. We can also provide this service on all other makes and models of outboard engine. We are great believer's of customer service and consequently we can complete service work while you wait - this can even include retrieval of your boat from the water on our trailer leaving you to enjoy lunch at a local pub or restaurant until the service is completed. This is a day out and essential service all rolled into one; whats not to like.
Marine Matters is able to complete your outboard motor engine service on all makes and model of engine - Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, Mercury, Mariner, Tohatsu, Evinrude, Johnson - for both the modern four stroke engines as well as the older two stroke models.
Thanks to our mobile outboard motor engine service facility we can truely be the "outboard motor engine service near me" that you desire. Our Mobile workshop is contained in a converted Mercedes Benz Sprinter and includes all the specialist tools that a main dealer is required to carry by the manufacturer. We also have custom built gear box stands, tool chests and benches and even a crane that can lift 500kg to ensure that all types of work can be completed to highest standard.
We operate our mobile outboard motor engine service throughout the Solent area but also go as far as Dover in the East and Weymouth to the West. While this may seem a wide area for a Solent based business it is because of how well we have equipped our mobile outboard motor service workshop that we have attracted business so far away. This mobile engine service is available for you to achieve the convenience of the service on your driveway or at a marina dry stack. To assist commercial operators we can visit you at varied locations. The message is we are here to service you at your convenience wherever you are.
Although outboard motor engine service is an important part of our workshop business we are also a boat builder and retailer of GRAND RIBs and a sales and service dealer for Garmin electronics and Fusion sound systems so can provide a complete fitting out service of your boat.

Solent Collect Warranty® provided with all Suzuki Engines from DF40A and larger
Solent Collect Warranty® Explained
All trailerable boats and engines work on a "back to base" warranty - this means you have to return your RIB and Engine to where you purchased it to access your warranty; this is onerous and expensive for you on both time and money.
When purchasing Suzuki four stroke outboard engines of DF40A or larger from Marine Matters it comes with our unique Solent Collect Warranty® plan. This means that any issues, no matter how small, we will attend and solve the problem, if this can't be done at your location we will take your Suzuki Outboard to our workshop, repair it and return it all free of charge. We do the running and jobs while you simply enjoy your Suzuki engine without any of the hassle. For the avoidance of doubt if the engine is permanently fixed to your boat we have the facility to bring the whole boat and engine to the workshop so we do try and make this really easy for you.
This is only available on Suzuki Outboard Engines purchased from Marine Matters and still within the warranty period.
This is not just for new Outboard engines but also includes used outboards still within the warranty period.
Any Suzuki outboard engine, within the warranty period, kept on the mainland from Lymington to Chichester and if kept at home any location within 10 miles of the coast qualifies for Solent Collect Warranty®.
Isle of Wight
Any Suzuki outboard engine kept on the Isle of Wight qualifies for collection from the north side of the island only. All collection from the IOW will be by sea only (i.e. not on a trailer on the ferry). Collection will include towing the boat across The Solent if the fault means your Suzuki outboard engine is inoperable under its own power.
Warranty Coverage on your Suzuki Outboard Engine
Your Suzuki outboard engine has a total of 5 years Warranty.
This is made up of 3 years manufacturers' warranty and if serviced by an Authorised Suzuki Dealer for the first 3 years Suzuki GB will extend the warranty by another two years.
Solent Collect Warranty® is available for the full five years on all Suzuki Outboards from DF40A and larger.
