BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC and second-generation E-TEC G2 engines will be installed on Campion Boats in a partnership that the Canadian marine companies announced Thursday.

Based in British Columbia, Campion builds sport, fishing and ski boats. BRP’s headquarters is in Valcourt, Quebec.

“Our partnership with Campion gives boaters more options to power with Evinrude E-TEC engines,” Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division, said in a statement. “Today’s boating enthusiasts demand performance, best-in-class fuel efficiency and worry-free ownership, all pillars of Evinrude E-TEC technology, and we’re excited about delivering these benefits with Campion Boats.”

Campion’s lineup includes Chase high-performance boats, Allante sport boats, Svfara tow boats, Infinyte dinghies, Explorer utility boats and Reinell fish ‘n’ ski models.

“Campion offers more outboard models than any North American manufacturer. Partnering with another industry leader like BRP, with their outstanding lineup of outboard engines, is so natural,” Campion’s Brock Elliot said. “The excitement generated by the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine will be extremely beneficial to both brands moving into the upcoming boat show season. This is a great opportunity for us to grow our dealer network in the U.S., and we look forward to doing so with BRP.”
