BRP signed 16 new dealers and four OEM boatbuilders — Calypso Skiff, Chaparral Boats, PolarKraft Boats and Mowdy Boats — to its portfolio.

BRP's Evinrude engine lineup ranges from 3.5 to 300 hp. Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines are now available from 150 to 300 hp.

“We are thrilled to welcome new members to BRP’s Evinrude family,” BRP Marine Propulsion Systems North American vice president Krista Sparkes said in a statement. “We introduced our new E-TEC G2 150 hp to 200 hp offering in June, which has garnered significant attention. These new allies and our mutual customers will see the benefits of our continued product innovation and unmatched performance.”

“We are really looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with BRP,” said Chuck Lock, executive vice president of Mack’s Prairie Wings, a new Evinrude dealer in Stuttgart, Ark.

“As our dedicated following of customers continues to grow, we have to constantly add top-quality products that will satisfy their varied needs,” Lock said. “When it comes to outboard engines, the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines provide the torque, fuel efficiency and low emissions that they are going to love.”
