BRP said it is offering 10-year, factory-backed extended service coverage on all Evinrude E-TEC and Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.

The company said the offer started on Monday and will continue through March 31.

“Boaters deserve peace of mind when on the water,” BRP marine propulsion systems North America sales vice president Krista Sparkes said in a statement. “In addition to our thrilling performance and intelligent design, Evinrude owners can now enjoy the security of a 10-year, factory-backed non-declining coverage.”

Consumers who purchase and take delivery of eligible Evinrude E-TEC engines during the boat show sales event will qualify for 10-year, non-declining, 100 percent factory-backed extended service coverage valued at as much as $7,500.

“This coverage is unheard of in the marine industry and offered by no other engine manufacturer,” Sparkes said. “This exclusive program further validates the confidence we have in the reliability and durability of our E-TEC engines, including our brand-new G2 models. Between unmatched product superiority and this bold consumer offering, there really is no other option but to power with Evinrude.”
