The 2017 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize

Surtees 700 Game Fisher

The heart of the 2017 Surtees/Yamaha Grand prize package is the 7-metre Open Hardtop Game Fisher, one of Surtees most popular offshore models. Able to smoothly slice through the hardest chop, it also provides a wonderfully stable fishing platform at rest.

Boasting Surtees IQ™, the Surtees 700 Game Fisher cleverly combines water ballast technology, a non-pounding deep V hull and engineered sub-floor systems. With a purpose-built large cockpit, the Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize package boasts a large 280-litre fuel tank and includes: a painted hull and cabin, sliding windows in the hardtop (for ventilation on hot days), canvas cockpit shade extension, sleeping infills for the cabin squabs, cabin carpet, a fold-away back bench seat with deck grip, Surtees bait station (complete with Eze mount, three holders and drainage house), LED floor, cabin and flood lights and a plumbed live bait tank.

The Surtees 700 Game Fisher also comes with Surtees’ 10-year, worldwide recreational hull warranty!

Twin Yamaha F115s

Another first for 2017: not one outboard but two! The Grand Prize package’s twin F115s are the very latest-generation, lightweight design, four strokes.

Engineered to impress — 4-cylinder, 1.8 litre 4-stroke with 16 valve, DOHC —the F115s also come with Yamaha’s well proven EFI systems for both economy and trademark reliability and a host of electro/technical features, designed to make life easier for their owners. These include: compatibility with Yamaha’s optional Digital Network System, Y-COP® remote security and Wide Range Power Trim & Tilt with optional tilt angle limiter (to name just a few).

The Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize also includes counter-rotating propellers to ensure greater control, neutral helm at all speeds and more pleasant and safer boating.

Epic Trailer

To safely get the Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize package from ramp to home to ramp, it comes sitting atop a very attractive, black powder-coated, already-registered and warranted Epic tandem axle braked trailer, complete with new Surtees stone guards and mag wheels.

Garmin electronics

The Grand Prize’s comprehensive Garmin electronics package is worth almost $12,000 and includes a 12’ Garmin GPS/Map 7412 multi-function display (MFD), Garmin 3D G2 vision charts, a Garmin GM24 xHD radar and a Garmin TM265LH CHIRP 1kw transducer.

Balex Automatic Boat Loader

One person launching and retrieving (even from on board) is super simple thanks to the Kiwi-designed Balex Automatic Boat Loader.

Lone Star drum winch

Anchoring duties will be a breeze thanks to the remote-controlled Lone Star GX2 drum winch system, complete with Sarca anchor and warp.

And there’s even more:

Keeping things on an even keel, even in blustery crosswinds, are a set of Lectratab LED auto-retract trim tabs while a Century Batteries triple battery system ensures there is always enough power on board. Music is courtesy of a Fusion UD750 stereo system, Ultraflex hydraulic steering makes the package easy to control and a set of Hutchwilco Surtees lifejackets helps keep family and friends safe. Other extras include a Jabsco washdown pump, Exalto window wiper, driver’s Softrider pedestal seat, Rule livebait tank and bilge pumps and an Iceytek chilly bin.
