BRP said its Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion system will power the ABJET 445 model from AB Inflatables.
The new model will be equipped with the Rotax 4-TEC 150 jet propulsion system, and it is making its North American debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which opens today and will continue through Monday.
The new ABJET 445 model will be on display at Bahia Mar booth 1019-1020 at the show.
“Becoming a key supplier to AB Inflatables is part of our strategic growth plan for the Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion systems,” Krista Sparkes, vice president of sales in North America for BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division, said in a statement.
“AB Inflatables is a strong manufacturer in the inflatable category with an even stronger reputation of high quality, a perfect match for our Rotax 4-TEC jet propulsion system.”
BRP said the proven Rotax powertrains deliver outstanding thrust, offer shallow draft for skinny waters and are CARB and U.S. EPA 4-Star certified for exhaust emissions. Rotax 4-TEC engines are also compliant with new CE emission regulations.
“We’re excited to provide our valuable customers with the proven performance of Rotax,” AB Marine Group’s Jaime Cristancho said. “Our team is confident this offering will give our jet-propelled inflatable line a significant boost in buyer confidence when shopping AB Inflatables.”
