Ducks Unlimited and Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. recently joined forces to market Ducks Unlimited-branded Yamaha ATVs while raising funds for conservation.
In the agreement, Yamaha was named an Official Licensee of Ducks Unlimited and has released a new Ducks Unlimited Special Edition Grizzly 660 4×4 model ATV. Yamaha will donate a portion of the sale of each Ducks Unlimited Edition Grizzly to support DU’s wetlands and waterfowl conservation mission.
With more than a million supporters, Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest wetlands and waterfowl conservation organization. The organization also works with Tucker Rocky Distributing.
The Yamaha Ducks Unlimited Special Edition Grizzly 660 4×4 ATV will come in the Max-4 High Definition camo pattern, making it the only Yamaha ATV available in Max-4. The ATV will feature special Ducks Unlimited graphics, as well as a rear rack bag with both the DU and Grizzly logos. The new ATV will be available in limited quantities beginning in fall 2005.
“This is only the beginning of what promises to be a great partnership for conservation,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha ATV & Side-by-Side Vehicle General Manager. “Ducks Unlimited is the preeminent conservation organization in North America. Its supporters are avid ATV users for work and recreation. We’re proud to support DU’s efforts and meet the needs of their supporters with Yamaha ATVs.”
