BRP said it added 15 dealers and five boatbuilders in North America during its fiscal second quarter, something the company is chalking up to its award-winning Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine.

“We’re very excited to carry the Evinrude line, and especially the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard,” Houghton Powersports sales manager Todd Royce said in a statement.

Houghton Powersports is a new dealer and one of the largest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

“Our boating customers will definitely get to their fishing holes faster with this engine,” Royce said. “The sleek design and low-end performance of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine is excellent. We’re already familiar with the industry-leading innovation of BRP products, as we carry Can-Am off-road vehicles and Ski Doo snowmobiles. Adding the Evinrude outboard lineup is an exciting new chapter for us and our customers.”

“Since February, we’ve signed a total of 36 new dealers and 13 OEMs in North America,” said Greg Heichelbech, vice president of sales, parts, accessories, clothing and network development in BRP’s marine propulsion systems division. “The latest signings are evidence that the Evinrude lineup is in demand. The performance benefits of our E-TEC technology and the addition of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine provide a superior choice for discerning boat owners.”
