Yamaha Marine UK has announced a new partnership with the Sea Angling Classic, an international ‘catch, photograph and release’ fishing competition organised by event management company Angling Spirit.

First prize in the recreational boat angling category will be a fully equipped Extreme 745 Gameking boat and trailer, supplied by Yamaha boat partner Extreme Boats. This will come with a 300hp V6 Yamaha outboard engine, complete with Yamaha Joystick Helm Master EX control.

The event takes place 14-18 June next year.

“We are delighted to partner with the Sea Angling Classic in 2023,” says Matt Taylerson, Yamaha’s divisional manager, marketing.

“The way the Sea Angling Classic continues to promote UK angling in a responsible manner is something we are particularly impressed with. The shore clean-up programme, a prerequisite for entry to the competition for participants, complements our European wide Yamaha initiative, Clean the Sea. The initiative demonstrates Yamaha’s commitment towards preventing the danger to our planet and motivates communities and users to do the same. This is a natural tie for both of us, and we are excited to work together in the future.”

Ross Honey, MD Angling Spirit and event founder, says: “Extreme Boats has signed an exclusive agreement with Yamaha and will be rigging all boats sold in Europe during 2023 with Yamaha engines. So, there was a natural, logical link for Yamaha to be the official engine partner of our event.

“It’s really great that so many of the activities and initiatives linked to the Sea Angling Classic’s best practice catch photo release angling event, such as promoting respect for the environment, directly mirror those of Yamaha. So, let’s raise a glass to passion and performance and welcome Yamaha on board.”

Yamaha says that the recent launch of its Pro Fish Cup and App, its sponsorship of the Solent based fishing competition, and the numerous activities that will take place in the lead up to the main event in June 2023, demonstrate Yamaha’s commitment to, and support of, the fishing and angling community.
