Evinrude has announced 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 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.
