Cobalt Boats’ Marker One Platform Series of deck and pontoon boats will now come equipped with BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines.

“We're proud to rig the Marker One Platform Series with the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine,” Cobalt Boats vice president of sales and marketing Gavan Hunt said in a statement. “The power and efficiency of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard delivers the torque and fuel economy our customers demand. The added bonus of BRP's customizable engine panels aligns perfectly with Marker One's Design Your Dream vision, as well. This isn’t your typical pontoon, and that's why we're rigging with an outboard that stands out on the transom.”

The Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine offers more than 400 color options.

“The pontoon boating segment is growing, and we’re committed to meeting this increased demand with unique products to perfectly match each application,” said Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division.

“Whether the Evinrude E-TEC Pontoon Series, specifically designed to enhance acceleration and throttle response, or the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine, with best-in-class torque for performance-minded consumers, we have what they want,” Villemure said. “This partnership with Cobalt Boats further reinforces our commitment to bring the power of choice to as many consumers as possible.”

Cobalt’s lineup includes runabouts and cruisers ranging from 20 to 36 feet, and now includes the new Marker One Platform Series, which can be rigged with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard.
