ORLANDO, FL (August 19, 2020) – Nautique Boats and The World Wake Association (The WWA) are excited to bring on YANMAR as a multi-stop presenting sponsor for the 2020 Nautique Wakesurf Series presented by Billabong. The Nautique Wakesurf Series will be comprised of three prestigious wakesurf events and providing innovative formats for competition in fun-filled, family-friendly environments.
“We are thrilled to bring YANMAR on board for the 2020 Nautique Wakesurf Series, providing the opportunity to showcase their diesel technologies across the world.’ commented WWA President Shannon Starling. “Adding a fuel-efficient product paired with YANMAR’s legendary reliability will be a great asset to the series, the sport, and all participating. We are beyond grateful to work with such wonderful partners as YANMAR and Nautique Boats.”
YANMAR’s diesel engines are known to be more reliable, provide better fuel economy, and give a faster cruise speed and longer cruise range. YANMAR’s engines have also been discovered to be the number one choice for repowering due to their compact size, high power-to-weight ratio, and smooth and quiet operation.
The Nautique Wakesurf Series presented by Billabong will provide the pinnacle of wakesurf competition, creating a global platform for athletes to come to define themselves as the sport’s elite with stops spanning across the globe. Riders, fans and spectators can check out the YANMAR engine technology in person at the upcoming Nautique Masters Wakesurf Championships presented by YANMAR in their booth on land and through on-water demos each evening in conjunction with Hyperlite Wake!
Fans and riders alike will be able to follow all of the action at thewwa.com/nautiquesurfseries.
