And some of the mercury powerheads on the early smaller 4 strokes (up to 60hp or so) were Yamaha. Also larger Tohatsu = Honda.

The company that owned evinrude also makes boats I guess, they signed a deal with mercury for the outboards after shutting down evinrude

Bombardier bought Evinrude years ago. Maybe they will still be making their watercraft?

Why is this not bigger news? Evinrude was pushing hard in the market. They just disappear?

I read the article about it and BRP sold the Evinrude name to Mercury Marine but not the Etech technology. BRP is building boats but don’t want to be in the outboard business. Not sure if Mercury will rebrand it or put her to rest.

They plan to continue servicing and supplying parts for their engines but not sure for how long. I would be a bit disappointed if I had just purchased a new motor.

Outboard motors were invented by Evinrude,right here in America, and the loss decreases the number of choices we can make for ourselves.

Some of my best times occured whilst sitting a couple of feet away from an Evinrude motor.

Saves a lot of people a ton of disappointment. Time is precious, evinrude steals that from people cause their products don’t work. I know people will say “mine works great.” That’s the exception not the rule. Truth is you don’t see those motors anywhere that service is hard to come by, because they breakdown on a consistent basis.

Pffff, Evinrudes are the shit, 4,000 hrs on my last one with minimal issues over a 1000 on my current E-tec going strong, Maintenance is the key
