Great Circle Marine Pty Ltd maintains a rigid quality control program and all of our products are thoroughly inspected and tested before leaving our factory.

Great Circle Life Rafts

Our confidence in the quality, workmanship and reliability of our life rafts allow us to provide a 12 year guarantee for all the life rafts we manufacture, provided they undergo inspections at required intervals in a Great Circle Life Rafts approved service facility.
The guarantee is valid only on return of the guarantee card and subject to the terms and conditions therein.

Products other than life rafts

Each Great Circle product is warranted to be free of defects from workmanship and material for a period of three (3) months from the date of purchase.

What you should do if you have a warranty issue

Call us at Great Circle and tell us exactly what concerns you. We’ll also need the model number, serial number, date of purchase and the owner’s name. This will allow our technicians to isolate the problem and in most instances resolve the issue quickly. In more complex cases we will suggest a course of action that will help rectify the problem. Should it be necessary, this may require the product being taken to our nearest authorised service centre or shipped back to our factory. All repair costs, replacement parts and labour are at our expense, but you must deliver the product to an authorised service centre or to our factory at your expense. Great Circle reserves the right to decide on the best course of action. We always recommend insuring the package against loss or damage in transit. We will ensure that the repaired unit meets 100% original factory specifications, upon which it will be sent back to you at our expense. Unfortunately we cannot provide warranty service at your vessel’s location and at no time will Great Circle pay for removal and reinstallation of the product(s) or accessories within or on the vessel.

What you should do if you require repair service

For service of equipment out of warranty, call us at Great Circle and explain the problem. We will suggest a course of action that will be similar in approach to a warranty claim. Once the equipment is received at our authorised repair facility or at our factory we will evaluate the unit and provide a repair estimate for you.
