2017 was 'Boatloads of Fun'

There was much anticipation before each draw - who would win the next prizes? How would they respond? Would they hang up in disbelief thinking it was a prank call?

But we needn’t have worried, as each and every one of the 12 winners in our fantastic, year-long Boatloads of Fun competition was completely over the moon and very, very happy to have scored a share of the $250,000 prize pool.

Boatloads of Fun was made possible by our generous prize partners:

- True North Adventure Cruises, who supplied three luxury cruises for two people aboard its five-star flagship True North, with a total value of more than $61,500

- Shimano Australia, who supplied six Family Fishing Packs valued at more than $5000 each

- BRIG Australia, who supplied two BRIG Falcon F360H tenders powered by Honda outboards and on trailers, valued at $16,000 each

And a special thanks to Isuzu Motors, Northbank Boats, Mercury Marine, and Mackay Trailers, who together supplied the Boatloads of Fun grand prize with a total value of more than $145,000.

And an extra special thanks to all our loyal members and Club Marine Magazine subscribers – we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with you about Boatloads of Fun and answering all your questions, and can’t wait to announce our next big prize giveaway!
