Surtees Boats and Yamaha Motor (NZ) Ltd have again joined forces with show organisers to create another must-be-won Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize package for the 2022 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show.

The 2022 prize, which will have a retail value of over $280,000, will again be centred around the popular Surtees 7.5m 750 Game Fisher enclosed cabin. Designed for extended offshore cruising, the 2022 Grand Prize boat features a large, 400-litre fuel tank, 530 litres of water ballast for even greater stability both underway and at rest, and an 80-litre freshwater tank.

Like all Surtees boats, the 2022 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize has been built to fish. The Grand Prize also comes complete with $5000 worth of Okuma fishing gear, an eye-catching wrap from Brave Design, and SeaDek protective panels. The huge list of extras includes a Lone Star GX3 Drum Winch, a comprehensive Hella marine LED lighting package and Electrotab auto-retract trim tabs.

It is powered by a Yamaha F250 V6 DES outboard and is fitted with a Yamaha Helm Master EX control system.

Included for the first time is Yamaha’s Thrust Enhancing Reverse Exhaust system, delivering increased prop grip and thrust for improved manoeuvering when docking or reversing on a big catch. 

The 2022 Grand Prize winner will also enjoy an impressive set of the latest Garmin electronics. A Fusion Apollo MS-RA770 stereo is paired with Signature series speakers.

The prize sits on a Hosking Trailers custom tandem trailer designed and built just for the 2022 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize.

To keep the lucky winner and their crew safe on the water, the 2022 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize also comes with six Hutchwilco 170N manual inflatable lifejackets, a Hutchwilco powerboat flare kit, an ACR Electronic Distress Flare, a large safety grab bag, first aid kit and a year’s worth of Yamaha Marine Insurance. Thanks to the show sponsor, Hutchwilco, there is also a 1m Kai Cooler fish insulated catch bag, a 700mm, Kai Cooler fish insulated catch bag, a Desalt cleaning kit, Loose Unit ski rope and ski biscuit and dock and bowlines.

The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show will be held at the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland, on May 12-15, 2022. All those attending the show with tickets bought either online at www.boatshow.co.nz or at the gate are eligible to enter the draw for the 2022 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize.
