BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard engines will be installed on SeaVee Boats’ build-to-order offshore boats ranging from 29 to 43 feet.

BRP said the deal with SeaVee enables it to further expand its portfolio of boatbuilders that are opting for the new vertical design, clean rigging package and fuel efficiency of E-TEC G2 engines.

“SeaVee Boats are custom-built for the most discerning of boaters. Because of this, we’re always on the lookout for new innovations and technology,” SeaVee marketing director John Caballero said in a statement. “The overall performance, fuel economy and look of the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine is something we’re very excited about. It’s a bold statement for a manufacturer to step out of the box the way BRP has. The total package, from the looks, steering and throttle control, is something that will leave even the most discriminating boater satisfied.”

BRP said its new E-TEC G2 engine delivers 20 percent more torque than competitive outboards and is 15 percent more fuel-efficient than leading four-stroke engines. The engine allows for more than 400 color choices and design packages so consumers can match the engine to their boat.

“The Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines are impressive as they are. Paired with the warranty that BRP offers, it’s an excellent value for any serious fisherman,” Caballero added.
