This is very interesting dropping outboard engines. Seems kinda sad to see this happening.

I wonder what the new technology is?

BRP ends production of Etec outboards

Here's the official press release from BRP.

Thankfully their still going to honor warranties for now. I still have over 6 years left on my 10 year warranty.

I think at some point they will try to enter the 4-stroke market. In the release they said the decision came from the impact from Covid-19 but it seems that the 4-strokes would probably have more to do with it.

Sounds like a weak, poorly run company, not to be able to operate on a slimmer budget for 6 weeks and survive.


Eat. Sleep. Fish.

Techs around here absolutely HATE working on Evinrudes. Warranty work is a red-tape nightmare.


If you can't find em wind em.

I’m sure Mercury, but you never know. Scott Martin is one I would watch to see which way he goes next year. That new 42’ Freeman has some pretty hardware attached to the back. I wonder if that will change as well.

Bass boats with Evinrudes have always been valued slightly less than one with a Merc or Yamaha, gonna be a lot worse now. 4 stroke technology was probably the nail in the coffin.

I’m amazed some others are not following suit, Honda and Suzuki.

Mercury makes a 300 too so he’ll be okay...
