NAUTIQUE SIGNS LONG-TERM EXTENSION WITH MOOMBA MASTERS
ORLANDO, FLA (September 12, 2012) – As part of its continued support for the growth of towed watersports globally, Nautique announced today they have extended their agreement with the Victorian Water Ski Association (VWSA) to be the exclusive official towboat of the Moomba Masters through 2017.
The Moomba Masters tournament is held annually in Melbourne Australia and is viewed by hundreds of thousands of spectators each year during the several day event.
Three-event competitors will ski exclusively behind the record breaking Ski Nautique 200 which is known for creating superior wakes. The Ski Nautique 200 has towed athletes to twelve world records along with numerous personal bests since its inception.
Recently named the most innovative product in our industry by the Watersports Industry Association (WSIA), the game-changing Super Air Nautique G23 will pull the wakeboard competitors for the first time on the Yarra River this coming March. The G23 delivers an experience that surpasses every wake boat in the marketplace and is the boat of choice for professional athletes around the world.
“To have great partners like Nautique is a huge contributing factor to success of Moomba Masters and is an important part of the reason why Moomba Masters is the largest water ski and wakeboard event in the world,” commented Victorian Water Ski Association President and Moomba Masters Tournament Director Darren Robertson.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our honored partnership with the VWSA, a great organization. Moomba Masters and Nautique provide the world’s best ski and wake boats for the world?s largest water ski and wakeboard event,” stated Nautique President/CEOBill Yeargin. “Moomba presents an ideal opportunity for people in Australia and all over the globe to learn about the watersports industry and Nautique,” Yeargin added.
