Yamaha Announces New Maintenance Matters™

 

Yamaha Announces New Maintenance Matters™ Website and Online Training Module

NEW RESOURCES COMPLEMENT YAMAHA’S ONGOING MAINTENANCE EDUCATION CAMPAIGN

Yamaha Marine Group today announced the launch of the all-new Maintenance Matters website (http://maintenance.yamahaoutboards.com) as well as the addition of the Maintenance Matters training module to its world-class training curriculum at Yamaha Marine UniversityTM Online.

“Yamaha’s Maintenance Matters initiative is an ongoing educational campaign that helps boaters have an exciting and rewarding experience with their outboards,” said David Meeler, Yamaha Marine Product Information Manager. “The new website is available to consumers as a searchable electronic form of our Maintenance Matters publication, which was recently updated and expanded to help keep maintenance top of mind.  Maintenance Matters also makes maintenance-related procedures, tips, and product information even more accessible and easy to understand,” he added, “whether you are a ‘do-it-yourselfer’ or prefer to have your outboard serviced by an authorized Yamaha Marine dealer.”

As with the publication, the Maintenance Matters website includes information, tips, and recommendations regarding issues that can face everyday boaters:  corrosion prevention, fuel and fuel system care, electrical system and power trim and tilt system maintenance, propeller and lower unit care, interval maintenance, engine oil and lubricants information, and much more.

The new Maintenance Matters training module, available to dealers at Yamaha Marine University Online, also complements the company’s ongoing maintenance initiative by helping Yamaha dealers better position outboard maintenance in their dealerships to better educate customers, make product selection easier, and create lasting customer satisfaction.

The Maintenance Matters module joins Yamaha’s all-new product training for 2015: V MAX SHO® Marine Outboard Walk-Around (including the latest 2015 V MAX SHO 115, 175 and 150/250 X-Shaft offerings); F150 Marine Outboard Walk-Around; Portable Outboards Walk-Around; Endless Propeller Solutions; and the latest Helm Master®module, which now includes F200 and Quad applications*. All courses are available to Yamaha Marine dealer principals and service professionals to meet growing demand.
