    Evinrude launches new 3-cylinder E-TEC G2 Outboards



    STURTEVANT, Wis., – Evinrude announced today the expansion of the revolutionary Evinrude E-TEC G2 product line to include 115 H.O., 140HP and 150HP models. Evinrude’s extended line-up is designed to give more boaters confidence on the water - in any situation.



    CONFIDENCE THROUGH INNOVATION AND PERFORMANCE

    Shattering the paradigm for mid-range outboards, the new models house a direct injection inline three-cylinder powerhead. Delivering refined running quality, and quiet operation, the 115 H.O., 140HP and 150HP models enhance the complete boating experience. With more torque and fuel efficiency at lower RPMs than comparable four-stroke engines, the new E-TEC G2 models give boaters extended cruising capabilities and more power whenever it’s needed. In addition to the thrilling performance, all E-TEC G2 engines are worldwide emissions compliant and have the most user-friendly ownership experience with no break-in period, no dealer-scheduled maintenance for five-years or 500 hours, five-year factory backed service coverage and no engine oil changes, ever.

    “We are proud to continue the legacy of Evinrude innovation in 2019 and well into the future,” said Tracy Crocker, president of the BRP Marine Group. “By bringing the E-TEC advancements to the 115 H.O., 140HP and 150HP models, some of the most popular outboard sizes in the market, we are once again, delivering the pinnacle in innovation and performance that inspires confidence in each and every Evinrude owner as they pursue their life on the water.”

    THE CONFIDENCE TO KNOW THAT THIS COULD BE THE BEST DAY ON THE WATER… EVER

    Evinrude now packs next-generation technology such as digital shift and throttle, the iTrim control system, digital instrumentation, custom color panels and optional iSteer dynamic power steering into outboards from 115 H.O. to 300 horsepower. Evinrude also added a new look and feel for the 2020 product year. All E-TEC G2 engines will have new premium graphics and give owners the option of white or slate gray frame and two new propellers. In addition, the 115 H.O. and 140 models will be available with premium controls and gauges, as well as a tiller option that feature touch troll and trim switches, LED’s for basic diagnostics and an NMEA 2000 connection for integration with external gauges and accessories.

    Evinrude donates new boat and engine to Milwaukee Riverkeeper at annual spring cleanup




    STURTEVANT, Wis., April 30, 2019
    – Evinrude and Alumacraft announced today the donation of an Alumacraft boat powered by an Evinrude E-TEC engine to the Milwaukee Riverkeeper. The boat and engine will be used to support Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s mission to protect and restore Milwaukee’s waterways. The boat’s maiden voyage was part of Evinrude employee volunteers' on-the-water cleanup efforts during the 24th Annual Milwaukee Riverkeeper Spring Cleanup event, which took place April 27, 2019. The new boat joined the fleet of Evinrude-powered boats as volunteers picked up trash and debris from the Milwaukee River.

    This year marked the third consecutive year that Evinrude employees have volunteered for the Annual Milwaukee Riverkeeper Spring Cleanup as part of the company’s Earth Day celebration, but it is the first time Evinrude donated an engine and boat directly to Milwaukee Riverkeeper.

    “We are proud to partner with Milwaukee Riverkeeper and be a sponsor of its Annual Spring Cleanup because we stand by their mission and believe it is our duty to do our part to take care of our environment,” said Tracy Crocker, president of BRP Marine Group. “Evinrude is committed to ensuring our waters are clean for future generations to enjoy. As the cleanest engine on the market, we think it’s only fitting that an Evinrude engine power the great work of Milwaukee Riverkeeper. We hope our donation will further advance Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s tireless mission to restore and protect Milwaukee’s waterways.”

    The boat and engine will be used to patrol the local waterways, assist the Milwaukee Riverkeeper team in taking samples, and monitor the water for different contaminants, as well as provide tours of the water to showcase the organization’s work to major donors, press and community ambassadors.

    “We are so grateful to Evinrude and Alumacraft for their support of our work and mission," said Jennifer Bolger Breceda, executive director, Milwaukee Riverkeeper. "Being on the river is vital to our work. It helps us understand what is happening to the resource and to connect people to the river. A boat and engine are critical, so this donation is simply a perfect gift."

    Headquartered in Sturtevant, Wisconsin, Evinrude is committed to protecting the local environment and ensuring clean air and water around the globe by dedicating their time and resources to develop clean technology and supporting important environmental initiatives like Milwaukee Riverkeeper’s Annual Spring Cleanup.

    STURTEVANT, Wis., April 29, 2019 – Evinrude announced today that it has been named Official Engine Supplier of New York Yacht Club American Magic, a professional sailing team and Challenger for the 36th America’s Cup. Evinrude will outfit American Magic’s fleet of chase boats with 300 HP E-TEC G2 engines. In addition, Evinrude will provide the organization’s technical crew with a  500-hour training course at its Sturtevant facility. Each engine will also be custom wrapped with an American flag-based design.

    “We are proud to sponsor New York Yacht Club American Magic in its challenge for the America’s Cup,” said Tracy Crocker, president of BRP Marine Group. “Competition is in our DNA and Evinrude engines have been on the transoms of countless boats that have set records and won tournaments throughout our brand’s more than 100-year history. It is an honor to power American Magic’s chase boats with E-TEC G2 engines and be a part of the team’s efforts to bring the Cup back to the States.”

    “Our fleet of chase boats is vital to American Magic’s on-the-water racing, training and safety,” said Terry Hutchinson, Skipper and Executive Director of American Magic. “We are thrilled with the reliability and power of our E-TEC G2 engines, and are grateful to have Evinrude onboard with our team.”

    The America’s Cup is the highest prize in sailing, and the oldest event in international sports. The Cup was first contested in 1851, predating the modern Olympic Games by 45 years. A 132-year stretch from 1851 to 1983 saw boats representing New York Yacht Club and the United States successfully defend the trophy 24 times. In 1983, Australia II became the first Challenger to successfully lift the trophy from the Americans. The Cup is currently held by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron’s Emirates Team New Zealand, who will be the defending team in 2021.
