Sea-Doo offers sales incentive
BRP is offering what the company calls its biggest sales incentive in recent years on select Sea-Doo watercraft and sport boats, aimed to thrust a little life into the coming boat show season.
The incentives consist of a five-year extended warranty on select 2009 models and three years of extended warranty on 2008 sport boats and 2007-2008 watercraft. In addition, the company is promoting up to $3,000 in dealer incentives on select 2008 sport boats and up to $1,000 on new and unused 2007-2008 watercraft. The company also promises to help buyers get approved with aggressive financing programs for qualified buyers.
Models include the GTX Limited iS, RXT iS 255, PXP-X and RXT-X, as well as the towsports-oriented Wake.
The offers will be made available only at select boat shows across the United States, and only through participating dealers.
Mark Hahn Race returns
Promoter Mike Follmer has announced plans for the 2009 Mark Hahn Memorial Havasu 300, now in its fifth year on Arizona’s Lake Havasu. The 300-mile endurance race, which will take place in February, is sanctioned by the APBA and once will again serve as the APBA National Team Endurance Championship.
Billed as the “world’s longest continuous PWC race,” the event is open to riders of all skill levels. Follmer, who also will compete in the event on his Yamaha FX SHO with teammate Tony Beck of Walt’s Motorsports, expects this year’s entries to exceed the 60 teams that entered in 2008.
The cost to enter the race is $275 per team. For more information on the event, check out www.pwcfun.com/markhahn300.asp. psb
