New boat powered by Baudouin!

Baudouin in Canada

Genrep is excited to announce that Shawn Boudreau’s lobster boat is almost ready to launch. This boat will be the very first new boat build in Atlantic Canada equipped with Baudouin engine. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about sea trials that will start in late August, early September.

Shawn Boudreau worked with Fraser Brendan from Nordic Marine in Yarmouth (Baudouin Master dealer in Nova Scotia) and took a leap of faith trying out a new engine in the Canadian market.

This isn’t the first boat that has been built by Shawn. In 2017, Boudreau and his father built their first fishing vessel, All Segments, a 50-foot-long and 30-foot-wide boat. For his second boat, and as Nordic first Baudouin customer, Boudreau decided to power his new boat with a Baudouin 6M26.2 engine with 600HP at 1950RPM. With a grizzly haul, she is expected to be launched at the end of August to the beginning of September 2019. Moreover, built in Shawn’s backyard in the beautiful town of Arichat in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, she will be porting from Yarmouth.

Who is Baudouin?

Baudouin is one of the largest marine engine manufacturers across the globe. With more than 100 years of experience, Baudouin has been offering marine propulsion and auxiliary engines that range from 130-1650 HP. They are famously known for their original marine design, quality, durability, and reliability. In late 2017, Genrep became the national distributor for Baudouin as we know that they will meet your expectations and offer exceptional engines. We are thrilled by Boudreau’s project and we wish the Boudreau family all the best in completing the boat.

Keep your heads up for future updates on the upcoming boat built by Shawn Boudreau.
