Evinrude has signed four new boat builders in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Vexus Boats, Steiger Craft, Composite Research and Southport Boats have all signed agreements for Evinrude to supply its E-TEC outboard engines.

“We are continuously working to increase the reach of our partner footprint to have a greater network of world-class sales and service outlets, providing an unmatched experience to our mutual customers,” said marine propulsion systems North America sales vice president Krista Sparkes in a statement.

“Whether it’s due to the product advantages of our Evinrude E- TEC G2 platform, industry-leading retail promotions, our rapid pace of innovation, or our best-in-class order to delivery lead times, more and more boat builders and dealers agree that partnering with Evinrude will further accelerate their success in the marketplace,” said Sparkes. “We look forward to a bright future with these new partners and welcome them to our BRP marine family.”
