ASKELADDEN – QUALITY GUARANTEED

Hull warranty

Askeladden leisure boats comes with a 5-year hull warranty. The hull warranty is only valid if the boat has been purchased from an approved Askeladden dealer. The hull warranty does not apply to commercial use. The hull warranty follows the boat when sold. (Ref. warranty card for complete list of terms and conditions.)

Guaranteed to stay afloat

Askeladden boats under 6 metres in length are filled with buoyancy foam. This provides extra buoyancy and prevents the boats from sinking, even when filled with water, carrying the maximum number of persons, full load, full fuel tank and engine. The foam also provides added stiffening and noise insulation – and is oil and fuel resistant.

Self-bailing

Self-bailing equals less maintenance and more enjoyment. All Askeladden boats are self-bailing, both when moored and moving. The boats are fitted with a manual shutoff valve which can be used when the boat is carrying an extra heavy load. The self-bailing system works without the need for a pump or non-return valve. All self-bailing Askeladden boats have full internal freeboard height.

CE-labels

The CE-label on your Askeladden boat is proof that the boat and all equipment satisfies the leisure boat directive requirements, dated 16 June 1998. All Askeladden boats from 1998 and onwards have the CE-label. Look for a CE-label when buying a boat.

ASKELADDEN'S QUICK CONCEPT

- innovative designs and perfect functionality

Askeladden follows a firm strategy for innovation and works hard to make functionality more simple and boating much more enjoyable. The ingenious Q-concept designed by Askeladden is the result of innovation and forward-looking product development. The Q-concept has been designed to ensure boating with no problems.

Q-Pantry

Pantry section which is concealed in the side of the boat. Quick to fold down and fold away into the side of the boat, saving on space.

Q-Table

A concealed fold down table without columns or table legs which get in the way. Concealed in the side of the boat and folds up in seconds. Just as easy to fold away again when not in use.

Q-Bed

From double co-pilot chair to sunlounger in one easy move. The back of the double co-pilot chair folds over and quickly transforms into a large, comfortable sun lounger.

Q-Step

An ingenious solution with an integrated step in the bow which folds up and forwards to provide simple and safe boarding even from low level wharves and steep rocks.

ASKELADDEN'S ENVIRONMENTAL PROFILE

- setting the environmental standard for the future of the boat industry

Leisure boats and boating are unfortunately a source of pollution. Askeladden is therefore strongly involved in developing a stronger environmental profile, with clearly defined goals for production, waste management and recycling of our leisure boats. Askeladden has phased out the use of tropical timber for the production of boat furnishings. Askeladden aims to be at the forefront of environmental developments and to set the environmental standard for the future e of the boat industry.

SECURMARK AGAINST THEFT

- standard on all boat models

The Securmark is engraved into all Askeladden boats. The Securmark is an international system to protect against theft and exists in Europe, North and South America and Australia. During production, Askeladden engraves micro labels in concealed parts of the boat. Each micro label contains a unique code which  is registered on the Securmark central database with information on the boat, engine and owner.

Securmark makes it easy to check who owns a boat when changing owners/selling. The system prevents theft of your Askeladden as it is a great preventative and, if your boat is stolen, will help ensure quick return to the rightful owner. All boats with Securmark anti-theft protection are clearly labelled with warning signs which will prevent thieves from attempting to steal your boat.
