Yamaha Sets Schedule for 2011 Discover V6 Offshore Demo Tour

Yamaha Marine Group has announced the 2011 schedule for its V6 Offshore Demo tour.

Yamaha Marine Group today announced the 2011 schedule for its V6 Offshore Demo tour, a national program consisting of high-performance demo rides designed to show the benefits of Yamaha’s line of 4.2-liter V6 offshore outboards.

“The V6 Offshore models need to be experienced to be appreciated,” said Dale Barnes, Yamaha Marine Group Division Manager, Marketing. “The midrange punch is incredible. Customers need to feel it, and we are hoping they come out to do that.”

The 2011 Yamaha Discover V6 Offshore Demo tour debuts Thursday, February 17, 2011, during the Miami International Boat Show® at the Sea Isle Marina & Yachting Center. Offshore fishing fans in the area are invited to attend for a first-come, first-served opportunity to ride in boats equipped with Yamaha 4.2-liter V6 Offshore outboards.
