Evinrude said its new E-TEC G2 engines will be installed on TideWater Boats.

“This really is a natural fit for BRP. The offshore enthusiasts demand performance, efficiency and reliability, all pillars of the Evinrude E-TEC technology,” BRP Marine Propulsion Systems division VP and general manager Alain Villemure said in a statement. “We’re confident this agreement with TideWater Boats is strategic, as it complements BRP’s existing group of boatbuilders.”

TideWater builds an array of skiffs, dual consoles, bay boats and offshore center console models. With more than 50 dealers, its network stretches from Ontario, Canada, to the Florida Keys. The company’s Lexington, S.C., facility recently expanded by 40,000 square feet.

“The new Evinrude E-TEC G2 outboard is a very cool engine, and it is extremely quick,” TideWater Boats owner Jimmy Metts said. “It’s exciting to see a new outboard on the market. Reliability is what’s important to me, and that’s what you get with this new motor. Not to mention the impressive fuel mileage I’ve seen from the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine. We’re excited to see what opportunities arise from our relationship.”
