Reasons the product is recalled

The retaining nut that is designed to prevent the boat’s steering cable from detaching from the boat’s rudder block may fail.

The hazards to consumers

If the retaining nut fails, this could lead to a loss of steering control of the boat. Steering loss may cause an accident, resulting in death or injury to the boat occupants or bystanders.

What consumers should do

Consumers should contact their closest Malibu Boats dealer to arrange for repair, free of charge. Consumers should not use the boat until it has been repaired.
