BRP OFFERS AN INBOARD JET PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR BOAT BUILDERS
Valcourt, Québec, March 19, 2013 – BRP expands its marine engines portfolio by offering an
in-board jet propulsion system, using its proven Rotax 4-TEC 1503 engine. BRP’s Marine
Propulsion Systems division in Sturtevant, Wisconsin, formerly the Outboard Engine division,
will now assemble Rotax inboard propulsion systems in addition to Evinrude outboard engines.
The heart of the jet propulsion system is the proven Rotax 4-TEC 1503 engine that is currently
used in Sea-Doo watercraft. This jet system provides an energetic, thrill-seeking driving
experience not available with other propulsion systems, and is a viable alternative to stern drive.
The Rotax 1503 power pack is available exclusively to boat builders and includes the 4-TEC
1503 engine, controls, fuel and jet pumps, along with the exhaust, electrical, propulsion and
“The Rotax power pack is a quality jet system superior to competitive engines, with more than 450,000 engines in the market,” said José Boisjoli, president and CEO.”Though we’ve exited the sport boat business, there is demand from boat manufacturers seeking an alternative to stern drive.”
In 2012, BRP completed a $15 million renovation to its Evinrude facility.
The addition of the Rotax 1503 power pack assembly underscores BRP’s
commitment to product development and assembly of propulsions systems.
