BRP Rotax Outboard Engine

Aug 15, 2022

On August 7, 2022, BRP introduced fully redesigned Manitou, Alumacraft and Quintrex boats featuring the all-new Rotax Outboard Engine with Stealth Technology. Disappearing under the boat, and engineered not to be seen or felt, this new engine technology is a game-changer. The model year 2023 Manitou, Alumacraft and Quintrex lineups also stand out thanks to their seamless, holistic and daringly innovative design from bow to stern. The result is a truly integrated boat that frees up valuable space for boaters and their families.

“Over the past 4 years, BRP has built an unparalleled value proposition for consumers in the market for a boat,” said Karim Donnez, President, Marine Group at BRP. “Today, we are proud to unveil disruptive new Manitou pontoons as well as Alumacraft and Quintrex boats that transform and revolutionize the boating experience. Built upon the brands’ respective legacies, and elevated through BRP’s unique design approach and stealthy engine technology, these new products are much more distinctive, contemporary and spacious. This is only the first wave of what we have set out to achieve in our Marine business, and we plan to continue pushing technology even further.”

The Rotax Outboard Engine: Hidden, Quiet and Efficient

BRP completely rethought, reimagined, and redesigned the engine for its boats. The new Rotax Outboard Engine with Stealth Technology is initially offered in 115 and 150 hp configurations. It delivers the same advantages of a traditional outboard engine — such as price, performance, handling, ease of maintenance, and full trim — with additional benefits: it’s hidden, it’s quiet and it’s efficient.

Partially submerged underwater, hidden under the boat, the engine is smooth and quiet at any speed. It doesn’t block the way at the stern and therefore frees up valuable space. The Rotax Outboard Engine is also efficient, allowing for up to 20% improved fuel efficiency compared to traditional outboard engines. What’s more, it is the cleanest combustion outboard engine in its class , with a 12% reduction in reportable emissions, and a 98% reduction in carbon monoxide at idle compared to leading outboard engine brands.

The new Manitou pontoons and Alumacraft and Quintrex boats have been crafted for an optimal integration of the new Rotax Outboard Engine with Stealth Technology for an unrivalled experience that will wow boaters and their families. Competitively priced within their segments, these new model year 2023 lineups offer incredible value and will be irresistible to any consumer in the market for a boat. Visit: www.brp.com
