LAKE­LAND, Florida and PEN­SACOLA, Florida — Octo­ber 21, 2016 — Blazer Boats and Tro­phy Taker Out­doors™ today announced an exclu­sive part­ner­ship that joins the two brands in inspir­ing more gen­er­a­tions to love the outdoors.

“The needs of the con­sumer are chang­ing and with new inno­va­tions in tech­nol­ogy find­ing their way to the out­doors and trans­form­ing the fish­ing and boat­ing indus­try, we are excited about the pos­si­bil­i­ties the part­ner­ship with Tro­phy Taker Out­doors cre­ates for those unique needs and this new gen­er­a­tion of sports­men and women to come.” said Keith Craft, Pres­i­dent and CEO, Blazer Boats.


Tro­phy Taker Out­doors new TV show, launch­ing on the Pur­suit Chan­nel this Jan­u­ary, will fea­ture Blazer Boats through hunt­ing and fish­ing seg­ments, includ­ing both fresh­wa­ter and salt­wa­ter. The TV show rep­re­sents a small frac­tion of the partnership.

– Novem­ber 6th will mark the first of sev­eral Free Entry Salt­wa­ter Tour­na­ments as part­ners and the first event will be located at E. G. Sim­mons Park in Ruskin, Florida dur­ing the Ruskin Seafood Fes­ti­val. Those inter­ested in fish­ing can reg­is­ter at www​.Bar​tow​Ford​.com/​F​i​s​h​i​n​g​-​T​o​u​r​n​a​m​e​n​t

– Chil­dren and Fam­ily are equally impor­tant and Blazer will be an inte­gral part of the youth events and oppor­tu­ni­ties that Tro­phy Taker Out­doors pro­motes and is involved in through­out the state of Florida.

“The future of the indus­try is the youth and if we do not con­tinue the tra­di­tions we were raised with and take our kids hunt­ing and fish­ing, we won’t have a sport.” says, Tro­phy Taker Out­doors Host, Lee Cepero. “Blazer Boats’ and Tro­phy Taker Out­doors’ shared vision for this part­ner­ship is inspir­ing,” Cepero said. “We are truly hon­ored to part­ner with the hard work­ing team at Blazer Boats, who have the same val­ues. We are look­ing for­ward to a great partnership!

From Div­ing and Spearfish­ing to Gator and Duck Hunt­ing, the show hosts are ded­i­cated to more than just Salt­wa­ter and Fresh­wa­ter fish­ing. The show is the high­est rated out­door lifestyle radio show in the state of Florida.

“I am per­son­ally, as we all are at Blazer, thrilled about what’s to come. We have worked together in the past and are hon­ored to strengthen and make offi­cial, our rela­tion­ship with Tro­phy Taker Out­doors”, said Direc­tor of Mar­ket­ing and Busi­ness Devel­op­ment, Scott Scar­boro, Blazer Boats, “This part­ner­ship allows us to focus on the amaz­ing fea­tures of our boats for our con­sumers var­i­ous needs and do so through­out mul­ti­ple touch­points.” “We are already sched­ul­ing seg­ments and events for 2017 and look for­ward to pro­vid­ing con­tent and value that will ben­e­fit those who love the outdoors.”
