BRP commemorated Earth Day as its Evinrude brand took part in the Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s 22nd annual Spring River Cleanup on Saturday.
Evinrude, of Sturtevant, Wis., is a maker of outboard engines and one of the brands of Valcourt, Quebec-based Bombardier Recreational Products.
BRP announced an eight-year, factory-backed extended service coverage on all Evinrude E-TEC and Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.
BRP said Evinrude partnered with the American Boat and Yacht Council to donate a newly refurbished 90-hp Evinrude E-TEC outboard engine to the West/Rhode Riverkeeper.
BRP said today that it has appointed Olivier Pierini as director of global marketing and strategic planning for its marine propulsion systems division.
BRP said it is offering 10-year, factory-backed extended service coverage on all Evinrude E-TEC and Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.
BRP said its Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion system will power the ABJET 445 model from AB Inflatables.
BRP said Evinrude, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences, awarded the first two BRP/Evinrude Water Research Excellence Fellowships.
BRP signed 16 new dealers and four OEM boatbuilders — Calypso Skiff, Chaparral Boats, PolarKraft Boats and Mowdy Boats — to its portfolio.
BRP said it is holding an Evinrude E-TEC fall sales event that runs from Sept. 12-Dec. 4 and allows buyers of a new Portable or E-TEC engine to receive a five-year, factory-backed warranty.
BRP reported revenue of $856 million in Canadian dollars (about $656 million U.S.) for its second quarter, a 5 percent increase from the same period last year.
