BRP, the owner of Evinrude outboards, is staging test-drive events for the public around the United States and in Canada, starting this month and ending at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

Consumers can test-drive new E-TEC G2 series outboards on a variety of boats. At the Tampa and Fort Lauderdale shows, consumers also can check out Evinrude iDock, a joystick system designed to facilitate docking.

“We have broken new ground with the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines,” Olivier Pierini, Evinrude director of global marketing and strategic planning, said in a statement.

“We can show you power curves and flow charts that prove our claims, but there is nothing like getting on a boat and throwing the throttle down. Our customers love the way that torque gets you up on plane right away, and the fuel efficiency is easy to see right there on the gauges.”

The full schedule includes 13 test drive events. Many will take place at boat shows in Montreal, Harrison Township, Mich., Norwalk, Conn., Massapequa, N.Y., and Annapolis.

A Double Shot for Small Business

New Jersey’s MTA saves the sales tax cap on boats, and the PREPARE Act would create low-interest, fixed-rate loans to help small businesses protect their properties against natural disasters.
