U.K.-based Tetra Boats announced a new partnership with U.S. electric engine builder Minn Kota.

“We can now supply an environmentally friendly engine to accompany all of our inflatable tenders, from our smallest and most economical E230 Eco tender … to our top-of-the-range S330 Sport,” managing director David Williams said in a statement. “We have some really great offers on all Minn Kota outboards.”

Tetra was launched less than a year ago at the 2010 Southampton Boat Show. Last month, Tetra announced its first European distributor with the signing of Origin Marine in Barcelona, Spain.

“We already have an exclusive dealer network nationwide, but there has been such extensive interest in the Tetra range in Europe we need to meet the demand by appointing new distributors worldwide,” Williams said.
