BRP UK AND JBT MARINE ENTER STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP
BRP Recreational Products UK Ltd, the new regional office for BRP in the UK, has entered a strategic partnership with JBT Marine Ltd , who are based at Thornham Marina distributor of Ballistic RIBS for the UK and Europe. All new Ballistic RIBs purchased in the UK and Europe throughout 2007/2008 will be pre-rigged with Evinrude® E-TEC outboard engines.
“We believe the Evinrude E-TEC is the best engine for our boats and our customers. The E-TEC technology is one of the most environmentally advanced on the market and the engines are also offered with a great warranty that includes the first dealerscheduled service after 300 hours or 3 years,” says Jonny Boys, Managing Director, JBT Marine Ltd. “We look forward to working closely with BRP and expanding the presence of Ballistic RIBs internationally as well as introducing new dealers to our network.”
The Evinrude E-TEC is one of the cleanest engines available today. It meets and exceeds the European Union emissions standards, and was the first outboard engine to receive the prestigious Clean Air Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in 2005. The range was also the first full line of outboard engines to receive the Air Resources Board’s (CARB) 3-star designation for Ultra Low Emissions.
The direct injection of the Evinrude E-TEC engine provides up to twice the fuel efficiency of competitive technologies. Its Engine Management Module (EMM) coupled with the fully stratified combustion system ensures that the engine burns less fuel under any load or condition.
See several Ballistic RIBs equipped with Evinrude E-TEC outboard engines, ranging from 5.5m to 7.8m, on display on the pontoons at RIBEX 2008. Alternatively, JBT Marine Ltd is running test days most Saturdays at Gunwharf Quays. For more information and to register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
