BoatUS Joins National Walleye Tour

Partnership will include custom contingency program as well

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatU.S.), boasting over half a million members nationwide, has joined the Cabela’s National Walleye Tour (NWT) as an official sponsor for the 2015 season and beyond. The multi-year agreement was finalized as the NWT prepares for the upcoming championship, scheduled to kick off Sept. 17 on Devils Lake.

“We’re proud to work with BoatU.S,” said NWT Tournament Director Anthony Wright. “As tournament fishermen who spend a ton of time on the water each year, our anglers realize the value of a BoatU.S. membership. It’s why many of them are members already and why we’re so excited to have them on board. We look forward to growing our partnership and introducing even more anglers to BoatU.S.”

BoatU.S. offers on the water and on the road towing services provided by the nation’s largest towing fleet and insures billions of dollars worth of members’ boats, offering unparalleled service at competitive prices. BoatU.S. also offers time and money saving benefits to their over half a million members through strategic partnerships within the marine industry.

Since its founding in 1966, BoatU.S. has also worked to provide quality service, savings and representation to the recreational boating community. Today BoatU.S. stands as the nation’s most powerful advocate for advancing the interests of boaters everywhere.

The new partnership will also include a custom contingency program rewarding NWT anglers that carry BoatU.S. marine insurance policies. BoatU.S. offers coverage in all 50 states to boat owners with a U.S. address and is available for most all boat types. In addition to the exceptional service and claims handling, NWT anglers with BoatU.S. marine insurance policies will soon be eligible for bonus payout at all NWT events.

“Partnering with the National Walleye Tour is a great opportunity to reach more boaters and showcase the benefits of being a BoatU.S. member,” said Program Coordinator Dustin King. “It’s also a great way to show our dedication to inland boaters and fishermen. We’re excited to be involved.”

All 2015 NWT events feature 100% payback. A fully rigged Ranger Boat, plus cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event – a minimum total value of $61,000. Multiple contingency programs are available for even higher payout. Anglers that fish all three regular-season events, in addition to the top points leaders, will qualify for the three-day, entry-fee championship.

The Cabela’s National Walleye Tour also includes unmatched television and media coverage, allowing a national audience to watch the action unfold from each event throughout the season. Airing on multiple networks, the NWT will be seen on the Pursuit Channel, NBC Sports Network and Fox Sports Net North.
