The Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize package for the 2023 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show in May, will be worth over $300,000 and will be the most valuable must-be-won prize ever offered at a Kiwi boat show.

One of the very first of Surtees’ Limited Edition 30th Anniversary models, this 7.5m 750 Game Fisher enclosed cabin package will be powered by Yamaha’s F250 V6 DES Offshore series outboard, accompanied by joy-stick-controlled, fully-integrated Yamaha Helm Master EX boat control system.

It will come on its own GFAB tandem axle, wirelessly-braked trailer; and be fitted out with the latest Garmin marine electronics.

The 750 Game Fisher has been designed specifically for extended offshore cruising, with a large, 400-litre fuel tank, 530 litres of water ballast for greater stability both underway and at rest, an 80-litre fresh water tank, electric hot water shower and sink, Engel electric fridge, and an electric toilet.

Powering the 2023 Grand Prize is a Yamaha F250 V6 DES Offshore series engine. Delivering serious offshore grunt, the new 250hp 4-stroke V6’s 4.2 litre engine has been designed to be completely integrated into the boat’s power, steering and control systems with built-in Digital Electric Steering (DES) delivering extreme precision and smoothness.

The Grand Prize comes on a GFAB tandem axle trailer specifically designed and built for the Surtees 750 Game Fisher.


There is also a fully stainless Boat Catch system to make it easy to launch and retrieve by just one person. All GFAB boat trailers come with a 12-year chassis warranty.

The 2023 Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize will come with six Surtees Hutchwilco 170N manual inflatable lifejackets, a Hutchwilco powerboat flare kit, an EPIRB, a fire extinguisher, a first aid kit, a large safety grab bag and a year’s worth of Yamaha Marine Insurance.

Everyone who buys a ticket to the 2023 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show at the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland on May 18-21, 2023, either online at or at the gate will have the chance to enter the draw for this amazing 30th Anniversary Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize.

And, thanks to the latest “scan and win” ticket technology being introduced by new show organisers XPO, visitors will be able to simply register their ticket online or onsite at the numerous iPad registration areas, before scanning their ticket at all 8 of the show’s scanning booths.

If you buy your tickets online you’ll also receive a second bonus entry into the Grand Prize draw ⎯ and automatically go in a separate draw to win a powered Viking Profish Reload kayak package, worth over $8000.

It will come with a super-compact, light and powerful Bixpy electric motor and features a battery able to last up to 8 hours. It also comes with an Ocean Signal rescueMe PLB1, the world’s smallest personal locator beacon; a reusable rescueMe Electronic Distress Flare; a self-draining Spinlock Belt Pack, complete with lanyard and a Hutchwilco multi-fit safety vest.
