    New BRP/Rotax OB?

    Always thought they were too smart to just walk away from this business segment.

    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Talk about a super short shaft. Hope those engine cover gaskets last a reeeaaally long time for your average boater.

    Wow, hope that thing is sealed up well. At least half the motor would be underwater at rest? Seems like a problem waiting to happen.

    Having the engine set that low is great for the center of gravity. For everything else - especially water intrusion - it's a bad thing. But that's just this man's opinion.

    Always admired BRP. Their snow machines changed the industry. Leaders, not followers.

    Seems like it would limit your repower options and the market for used engine... unless it really takes over the market.

    Same junk, just now half under water. These guys really like an ass kicking dont they?

    EDIT: I'm just completely baffled by this actually. They leave the outboard market completley after refusing to produce a 4-stroke even though all of the other manufactures have switched, and the market demands it (like it or not)..... leave their customers and dealers high and dry with warranty, parts etc.

    THEN come back with this "new - old" design, 4-stroke, PWC / outboard apparatus and want to bring it to market?

    WHO IS RUNNING THIS COMPANY?!?!?!

    Lools like the 3 cylinder 150 hp motor they came out with before they stopped making motors would be a 2 cycle

    If you're referring to the 951 DI motor & that's what it is then personally I would'nt even consider one. Can't imagine BRP/Rotax would bring that back to marine. RR

    This is the evinrude “ghost” project that was announced in 2020, killed as part of evinrude, but then dusted off and rebadged BRP. Oh, and it’s 2-stroke. My money says it’s still-born/doa.

    If it was a 1501 4Tec engine it would be a possibility. Good proven engines. RR

    I tend to agree with the above assessment. A lower unit under water is one thing. A breathing engine under water is a different kettle of fish.
