BRP signed angler and broadcast personality Cyril Chauquet as an Evinrude ambassador.

Chauquet is the founder and host of “Wild Catch,” a fast-paced sportfishing and adventure series that follows his remote pursuits to catch the world’s biggest predator fish and explore the ties that bind fishermen across the globe.

He has been featured on networks such as ESPN2, Discovery and NBC Sports, as well as Spanish-language networks in Mexico. He shares years of sport-fishing experience while teaching his audience about new species and new countries and promoting conservation.

“I love the new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine for its performance and stylish design, and because it is the cleanest outboard engine in the world,” Chauquet said in a statement. “My friends and fans who have purchased and used this engine say the same thing. I’m happy to be part of a world-class leader in innovation and I look forward to a long relationship with BRP’s Evinrude brand.”
