BRP’s Evinrude E-TEC engines will be rigged on Sea Pro Boats’ seven new models in the mid-tier center console saltwater fishing boat market for 2016.

“When I first heard that BRP was offering interchangeable cowling panels for the Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine that allows for hundreds of customizable color options, I thought it would be an inventory challenge,” Sea Pro Boats president Jimmy Hancock said in a statement.

“I was wrong. It really could not be easier. We’re offering eight different hull color options, and BRP offers panels that perfectly match each one. And if that wasn’t enough, the technology under the cowling is even more impressive. The power of this engine is unbelievable. We tested our 239CC with a 300-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2 engine and it jumped up on plane like an inboard tow sport boat. I can’t wait to test it on some of our other models.”

“We know boat manufacturers like Sea Pro design their boats for optimal performance, efficiency and reliability, and they want an engine that enhances the owner experience,” said Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division.

“Our entire lineup of award-winning Evinrude E-TEC engines, including the all-new Evinrude E-TEC G2 models, delivers the performance, fuel efficiency and reliability that Sea Pro’s offshore enthusiast consumers demand. The Sea Pro brand is a great addition to our fleet of OEM partners who share our passion for the water.”
