A nice set-up and well done video from Boattest.com

The Bluewater 2550 has a 24-degree deadrise at the transom, and a sharp entry forward splits the waves, both helping to give the boat a smooth ride.

A video from a gentleman that did a 500 mile trip around the bottom of Florida. This video is a re-fill showing the unbetable fuel economy of a G2. His own site has a two part video of the whole trip and as he mentions looks like a trip worth doing if you live in that part of the world.

A good video on a high end hull with twin big blocks. I would have liked to have seen the performance with one engine and my money would of been on still being able tp get her out of the hole with a single G2.

To achieve a striking hull/outboard color match, the Evinrude E-TEC G2 200 H.O. offers more than 400 color combinations to choose from.

Not really related to Evnrude but a good insight into the abilities of BRP to push the boundaries on all their toys. Getting 300HP from a 1.6L engine is impressive and shows how they have the luxury of deciding what powerplant, 2-stroke or 4-stroke works best in each application-that engine would be interesting to see strapped to a mid-section of an outboard.

At the heart of Sea-Doo's performance PWCs is the ACE engine, a lightweight and compact 1.6-liter supercharged aluminum three-cylinder that can make up to 300 horsepower.

If I lived in a cold country I know one of these would be in my garage. Some very cool features built into this little donk. Some things may find their way into the Evinrude family.

Been a while since I have posted a video from the net, there are plenty out there, but this is a good one from the guys up in QLD about his visit to the BRP Evinrude HQ. I have been lucky enough to go there three times since 2001 and it is a very impressive facility.

A well done video on emissions. Good explanation of stratified combustion at lower RPM too.

A couple of videos of the same boat, same load with a G2 200HP and new Merc ProXS V8. as you will see numbers are very close and show both companies make fine outboards. If you click to watch these on youtube you will see fuel and speed numbers too. Pretty close in speed but the G2 shines in fuel consumption(both Lt/Hr and Km/Lt) especially at low RPM and WOT.





This is on a mate's boat, who over the years has had many outboards so a good real world guy that has experience with different brands and technologies.

A good video from a very experienced boater from the land of the long white cloud. I found it interesting where he compared his large boat with a 300HP G2 vs a mate's smaller boat with a 150HP 4-Stroke and at the end of a day's boating he fuel burn was way down and with petrol costing around $2NZ/Lt that is huge.
