sdfSea Vee / Mercury Mayor's Cup-RECAP
No one caught the Million-Dollar Sailfish, but teams walked away with plenty of money. “Wound Up” took 1st place and over $90,000! “L&H” took 2nd place and also won the Dewar’s 12 Billfish Championship with stellar performances in the FYI Sailfish Kickoff and the Sea Vee / Mercury Mayor’s Cup. The tournament also had its most successful P/R campaign with stories by the Associated Press, and news agencies all over Florida and as far away as Philadelphia. For complete results and story visit. www.MayorsCupTournament.com

 

Miami Boat Show RECAP
Every year, we all wait for the big show. It hits the town like a hurricane; and it feels like it. The buzz of the show was “Bigger is Better.” Mercury introduced their new 300hp Verado which is the same weight as their 225/250/275 so the power-to-weight ratio is incredible. The motor also saw a design tweak which gives the engine a “cleaner” look. Mercury also showed off the new 4 cylinder 200hp Verado and 1200hp I/O. Yamaha introduced their 350 V8 outboard. This impressive engine weighs in at over 800 pounds, but still offers a great power-to-weight ratio. Both engines will be available this summer.

We also saw the debut of Contender’s 38 Express. With two staterooms and great performance this is the ultimate island hopper. Add to this standard A/C and generator and you’ll never need a hotel again.


The darling of the show was the new 39 Sea Vee. A true open fisherman, the 390 has introduced an entire bank of new features. Pneumatic slide-out cooler, hatches, and console door all operate with the flick of a switch. The new integrated and hidden bow seats and rear jump seats were created from the ground-up. The hinges and mechanisms were all newly designed specifically for these applications; nothing off the shelf here. With triple and quad engine setups the 390 is a beast. Sea Vee did their homework on this one and it shows.

 

Captain Bob Lewis Billfish Challenge was formed to honor the legendary Bob Lewis. Since 1993 the tournament has raised money and awareness for youth programs in and around South Florida. The tournament continues to grow and is a South Florida staple. www.BillfishChallenge.com March 3 & 4
