BRP, Sylvan Marine Offer E-Tec/RPT Pontoon Rebate

BRP and Sylvan Marine have announced a new rebate program which will provide consumers with a $1,000 cash rebate when they purchase a Sylvan RPT pontoon boat powered by a 200 hp Evinrude H.O. E-TEC outboard engine. The promotion is offered to consumers across North America, and runs through January 31, 2010. 

To qualify for rebate, the Sylvan RPT Tri-Performance package with third tube option and Evinrude E-TEC 200 H.O. must be purchased together. Boats must be warranty-registered with Evinrude and Sylvan Marine by February 15, 2010. Demo boats are not eligible under the program.

“The Sylvan RPT tri-toon design represents a new level of performance in the pontoon market,” says Phil Smoker, VP of Sales for the Smoker Craft family of boats. “By tying that to the performance aspects of the E-Tec we feel we can bring together the two best performers industry-wide.” 

“We continue to work closely with our OEM partners to enhance the buying experience for the consumer,” says Scott Weber, VP, Sales, Marketing and After-Sales Service for BRP's Evinrude division. “In today's economy, it is critical for engine manufacturers to align themselves with their boat builder partners and bring these types of incentives into the market. Our collaboration with Sylvan Boats and their new RPT pontoon is a true testament to that successful strategy.”

The rebate offer may be combined with Evinrude's “Best Deal on the Water” promotion, which ends December 22 and provides two years of additional warranty coverage to the standard three-year factory limited warranty.
