BRP said Evinrude will be the engine sponsor of John Gillespie’s “Waters and Woods” TV program.

The show focuses on Midwestern fishing and Evinrude said resource preservation is an important point of each episode, along with providing tips, techniques and new products to help viewers enjoy their time outdoors.

“After many years in this industry, we are very excited to work with Evinrude,” Gillespie said in a statement. “Our new Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines have incredible torque, which gives such a rush and adds a level of excitement to the show. The fuel efficiency makes it a practical matter, as we can stay on the water filming while using less fuel than any other outboard we’ve used. The fact that they also produce the lowest emissions of any engine available fits right in with the purpose of the show, which is to inform our viewers of techniques and products that protect and preserve the environment while they go out and enjoy the beauty of nature. Evinrude is the perfect partner.”

“Environmental protection is important to Evinrude, which is why our engines have up to 75 percent lower emissions than any combustion outboard available,” said Olivier Perini, Evinrude’s director of global marketing and strategic planning. “ ‘Waters and Woods’ commitment to conservation and protecting our resources makes our partnership a natural fit. We are happy to support John and his show, as he helps his viewers get the most out of their outdoor activities.”

BRP’s Evinrude lineup ranges from 3.5 to 300 hp. The new E-TEC G2 series is available from 150 to 300 hp.
