Most valuable ever Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize

Barry 2018-12-07

Organisers of the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show are excited to announce that the show’s 2019 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize will be, with a retail price over $220,000, the most valuable must-be-won prize ever offered at a boat show.

The 2019 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize’s eye-catching Prowler Red Surtees 750 Open Cabin Game Fisher, complete with Surtees SiQ and the company’s new Offshore Transom — and powered by twin Yamaha digitally electronic controlled 150hp four stroke outboards — will also be the first boat in New Zealand to be fitted with Yamaha’s revolutionary new Helm Master boat control system!

A fully integrated boat control system, Helm Master delivers super-easy joystick controlled docking when coming into the ramp and precision boat positioning out at sea. Using a unique combination of enhanced binnacle control, a streamlined digital display, push-button start/stop switches, an RFID key fob and an innovative joystick, Helm Master gives skippers total, effortless control over their boat in all conditions.

Helm Master’s enhanced binnacle adds another level of control, allowing skippers to automate trim adjustments and speed control, select a second station and use single-lever operation, all with the touch of a button.

The Command Link Plus CL7 Premium Touchscreen Gauge is Yamaha’s latest and most advanced display. Fully customisable and able to monitor up to four outboards, its functions include GPS navigation and the ability to connect to a fishfinder, sonar, radar and camera. It also gives access to SetPoint enabling skippers to program their preferences for the FishPoint, DriftPoint and StayPoint™ features.

The Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize’s twin Yamaha 150hp four-stroke outboards and exciting new Helm Master boat control system are fitted to a Prowler Red Surtees 750 Open Cabin Game Fisher. A lockable mini galley provides an ideal space to safely stow valuable fishing equipment and the cabin is the perfect place to rest up when overnighting.

Like all Surtees boats, the Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize also comes complete with Surtees’ renowned SiQ technology. Delivering superb handling in all conditions as well as outstanding stability, both at rest and while underway.

The 2019 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize will also feature Surtees’ new Offshore Transom. Developed using feedback from Surtees customers, the new Offshore Transom increases the 750’s fuel capacity, extending the distance owners can travel without needing to refuel.

The 2019 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize will also come with a comprehensive Garmin electronics package, a Loan Star drum winch system, Fusion stereo, Hella LED lighting, Seadeck flooring, Oceanblue outriggers and HiTech Plastic seating. A set of Hutchwilco lifejackets and a year’s Yamaha Marine Insurance are also included.

The 2019 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show will be held at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland on May 16-19. Tickets to the show are $20 each and are now available on-line at . All tickets bought online are also automatically entered into the draw for a powered Viking Kayaks’ Reload package worth over $8000.
