NMTA prize boat

Each year so far, the Northwest Marine Trade Association has given away a fantastic prize boat. All of our derby participants are entered in the NMTA drawing. Please note that all aspects of the boat giveaway are under the control of the NMTA. We simply submit your name and contact information, and hope that one of our anglers wins the boat! Please contact NMTA for details.

The Weldcraft Rebel 202 Hardtop is valued at $75,000 and is powered with Yamaha 200 and 9.9 horsepower motors. It comes on an EZ Loader tandem axle galvanized trailer fully rigged with Scotty High-Performance Downriggers, Raymarine electronics, and a Dual Electronics stereo.

The 2019 boat is a beauty and was  on display at our Awards Ceremony on Sunday, March 10.

Okay, salmon Derby Series fans…….meet the new grand prize boat for 2016. One lucky angler will win this $85,000 boat at the Everett Coho Derby in late September. However, as we discussed in our annual NW Salmon Derby Series meeting a few months ago at Elliott Bay Marina, I will keep the boat and provide it for display at the Einar Nielson-Becky Barr Salmon Derby at Roche Harbor in later September, the Bayside Marine Salmon Derby in early November and finally at the Resurrection Salmon Derby in Friday Harbor the first weekend in December. Then, the winner can claim the grand prize boat.

I am extremely pleased how this boat package came together. It is a 22-foot Hewescraft OceanPro, powered with a 225 Mercury Verado. It is a rocket ship! Add in a 9.9 ProKicker. The boat sits on a galvanized tandem axle EZ-Loader trailer. Lowrance electronics equipped and stereo. It is awesome. And, finally, Scotty downriggers donated their new high-tech electric downriggers. Dude, this boat is ready to rock! It is a killer package and some are saying it’s the best package yet.

The boat was on display at the Seattle Boat Show…. Looking forward to another great NW Salmon Derby Series now entering our eighth year. Welcome aboard and buckle up!
