#ImRepoweringWithYamaha Competition

Win a Yamaha Repower for your boat

Win a Yamaha Repower for your boat – entries open from June 1 to July 31, 2022

Is your beloved boat in dire need of some TLC and a new beating heart? If so, then we’d would love to hear from you!

We’re launching the #ImRepoweringWithYamaha competition, where we will choose one lucky boat owner to receive a NEW outboard motor, rigged and installed on their boat all for FREE!

Yes, that’s right, we will take your boat and fit it with the latest Yamaha four-stroke engine best suited for your boat.

Their technical experts will come up with the best combination of engine, rigging, controls, and propeller to allow you many more magic moments with the utmost confidence and reliability.

We’ll be looking for a boat - any make, model or size, currently with any branded two-stroke or four-stroke outboard on the back. If you fit the criteria, here’s how to enter to win a Yamaha Re-Power for your boat.

  1. Simply submit a selfie video of you and your boat telling the Yamaha judging panel who you are, where you’re from, and a bit about your boat – the name, make, likes/dislikes about it, outboard, hours etc.
  2. Most importantly, tell the Yamaha judging panel why you’d like to re-power your boat with a Yamaha outboard - Video submissions should be up to 2 mins in length.
  3. Post your selfie video to the Yamaha Marine NZ Facebook page and be sure to tag @yamahamarinenz and include the hashtag #ImRepoweringWithYamaha

There can be only one lucky boat, but for those that don’t win you can follow the entire repower process via a video series with guest appearances and technical experts sharing their thoughts and extensive knowledge along the way.

So if you’re tired of praying the ol’ girl will start when launching at the ramp, or your servicing and fuel costs are becoming a drag, enter the #ImRepoweringWithYamaha competition.
