Vetus-Maxwell McLay 690 Competition Winner

Date: 23 Dec 2013

Earlier this year, Vetus-Maxwell APAC held a competition at the 2013 Hutchwilco Boat Show in Auckland, New Zealand. Visitors to the Vetus-Maxwell stand who asked the friendly staff about any Vetus or Maxwell equipment were encouraged to enter a competition to win a day out fishing with two mates on the Vetus-Maxwell 6.9 McLay trailer boat.

Pacific Powerboat magazine editor and publisher, Mr Barry Thompson, soon got wind of this and being a keen fisherman himself, throw down the gauntlet and challenged the Vetus-Maxwell crew to a friendly fishing competition. So it was Team Vetus-Maxwell up against Team Pacific Power Boat and last month (November), it was all on.

The outcome was interesting and Barry featured an article in the January/February issue of his magazine. But why should we tell the story, when Barry did such a great job. Read the attached PDF and you'll understand why we think the Vetus-Maxwell boat is such a winner.
