Hi Grimo and welcome to the forum.
Yes, Hobie offers the same warranty in the US -- two years on the hull and 1 year on the drive.
One would hope that a warranty would insure getting a good product and a reasonable amount of time to make sure there are no defects or failures. It is promise -- taken seriously by some companies and virtually worthless in other cases. It has nothing to do with the quality of the product, as its only cost is ink on the paper. It is just as likely to be a marketing inducement as not. A warranty is only as good as the company. Then, it's only as good as the fine print. If the company goes out of business in 6 months, so does that lifetime warranty.
In my opinion, Hobie makes a great product. The design is award winning. The quality is solid. They offer a reasonable time to make sure there are no problems. If there are any defects, they don't argue, they just fix it -- no charge. If you're the second or fifth owner, they'll still fix it -- free. If you break a part three times (and not your fault), they'll fix it or replace it until it's right. Simple and straight forward. They don't promise more than they can deliver.
You may find a longer warranty, but I doubt that you will find a better
warranty on a comparable product. In fact, I don't think, with the Mirage drive, you'll find any comparable product at all!
It's also important to remember that, unlike a paddle, the Mirage drive locks into the hull, making it vulnerable to all kinds of stresses and shocks that paddle hulls will never see. Not exactly the same use of the hull is it? This is a huge difference.
Have I put my money where my mouth is? I've owned Hobie Mirages for six years and currently have two. Having tried and/or owned other pedaling boats, I wouldn't consider buying any other brand in a pedaling craft of any sort. I like the company as much as the product, and think you will too! Take a close look at it, have a test drive and buy whatever you think will do the best job for you.
