Yamaha Partners with Elite Series

The Academy Sports + Outdoors HT Professional Redfish Series Announces Partnership:

Yamaha Motor Corporation partners with the tour and anglers of The 2015 Yellowfin Elite Redfish Series. 


Today HT3 Outdoors has agreed to terms and received the full support of Yamaha Motor Corporation to be a premier sponsor, the official engine provider and the presenter of the 2015 Yellowfin Elite tournament and television series. Yamaha brings so much to the table for anglers all across this country and the world.

World class innovation, fuel efficient and reliable, the Yamaha brand is synonymous with quality and trusted by professionals and weekend enthusiast as well.

The guaranteed first place prize package at each of the Elite Series Tour Stops in 2015 and at the Classic Kick Off event of 2016, as advertised will be a Yellowfin boat sitting on Ameratrail Custom Trailer and they will be powered by the most reliable, fuel efficient outboards available on the market today, the awesome 115 hp and 250 hp Yamaha engines.

The anglers competing on the 2015 Yellowfin Elite Series, presented by Yamaha will now have the full tournament support of Yamaha and that means the support team and rig at each of our E:40 Tour events. This team of professionals will ensure that more E:40 tour pros can get back on the water and continue to compete even after the inevitable break down occurs. “We as anglers are hard on our equipment,  this is HUGE to know that back at the dock will be support staff to take care of any damage we do during the day and get us back on the water. You cannot compete with confidence in 3 day events without this assurance”, stated Yamaha pro, Dwayne Eschete.

About Yamaha: Reliability. Performance. Innovation. It all starts right here. And that’s exactly why so many boaters won’t trust anything but a Yamaha out on the water.  Yamaha Outboards has proudly operated in the U.S. market for nearly 30 years. In that time, our engineers have become known for their relentless pursuit of a more satisfying boating and ownership experience for customers. As a result, Yamaha Outboards have become synonymous with innovation, performance and legendary reliability.

For nearly 30 years, Yamaha has led industry in innovation, but we can’t take all the credit. It’s our boaters’ high expectations that drive us to improve our game. To make it faster, more efficient, more exhilarating and more reliable. Here are just a few of our engineers’ notable innovations. Yamaha’s F350 was the world’s first V8 5.3 liter four stroke outboard. It redefined offshore power and offered an amazing alternative to inboard power, revolutionizing offshore boat design. The V MAX SHO® was the very first V6 4.2 liter super high output four stroke for bass boats. It changed the game by merging the quiet, clean-burning, fuel-efficient advantages of a four stroke with a light weight and class-leading hole shot and displacement. On and on the list goes, one thing is for sure, if you want your boat to be powered by the best, there’s only 1 name to consider, Yamaha!

As the Elite Series partner Yamaha will bring the anglers, their families, friends and fans a lot of cool stuff to catch.  Immediately we will begin our search for the Yamaha “catch of the week” . In each episode we will feature a “fan” that has had and submitted to us an exceptional catch or story and will send them out a nice sponsor prize pack, give them a shout out on the show, include a picture of their catch and of course feature them on Facebook Elite Series Fan Page.

This is going to be exciting and as usual, could not have happened without the help and hard work of a lot of people. To each and every one of them we say thank you, to Yamaha we say welcome and to all the pro’s fishing the 2015 Elite Series we say, get ready. It is our hope that as the events and public’s interest continues to grow that each of you will experience many opportunities to begin or continue your quest in chasing the dream.  Thanks to major partners like the Yamaha Motor Corporation, we know that it will!
