Johnson outboards to remain in Europe
By IBI Magazine
Jets Marivent, European distributor of Bombardier Recreational Products, would like to clarify that the Johnson line of outboard engines will continue to be available on the European market, despite the group's announcement last month that the range is to be discontinued in the US. The confusion is believed to stem from various "misinterpretations made by the media" in recent weeks.
"The popular range of four-stroke Johnson outboard engines will be available in Europe and there are no plans to discontinue the product in the near future," says Paul Francis of Jets Marivent UK. "I believe that the news item from the US must have been picked up and mistakenly distributed to a pan-European audience, hence the confusion."
Based in Barcelona, Spain, Jets Marivent specialises in the import and distribution of Bombardier Recreational Products in 14 European countries, with offices in the UK, Netherlands and Germany. It is the sole importer of Sea-Doo Watercraft, Evinrude and Johnson outboard engines and BRP ATVs in both the UK and Ireland.
