The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show, the oldest, largest and most popular boat show in New Zealand, has become an official sponsor of Coastguard NZ.
“The show has long been a strong supporter of Coastguard and the great work they do helping save lives at sea,” says the show’s general manager Dave Gibbs. “We are proud to have now taken the next step and become one of Coastguard’s official sponsors.”
As part of the show’s new sponsorship, the organisers will run a live auction on the Saturday of the show, will all proceeds going direct to Coastguard NZ.
“We have already been promised some great products for the auction and expect to have many more by the time the show opens on Thursday, May 13,” says Dave Gibbs.
The products to be auctioned, along with their usual retail price, will be listed on the show’s website (www.boatshow.co.nz) and will be on display in the Hall 2 foyer throughout the show.
The show has also made it easy for those buying their tickets on-line to make a donation to Coastguard at the same time.
“We know that, like us, many boaties and fishers have huge respect for Coastguard and the work they do and would like to support them. We have therefore made it easy for those buying their show tickets online to also make a $2 donation to Coastguard if they wish.”
As part of the agreement, Coastguard will donate a Lifetime Coastguard Membership and a Day Skipper course to the winner of the 2021 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize package.
The 2021 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show will be held at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane Auckland on May 13-16. Tickets are $25 each for adults while children, 16 and under, are free.
Tickets are now available at www.boatshow.co.nz with all tickets bought online earning a second, bonus entry for the $250,000-plus Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize as well as automatically going into a draw for Viking Kayaks powered kayak package worth over $6500.
