Polar Kraft Partners For Australia Fishing Boat Giveaway

September 17, 2013



Polar Kraft Boats, in partnership with Bayview Marine, has joined Australian Bass Tournaments (ABT), Fishnet, Mercury Marine Australia, and AFC Outdoors (a televised team fishing competition) to give away a Polar Kraft Bass Series TX165 Pro during a 2013 viewer promotion.

The winner, Kris Larson, had this to say about winning the grand prize: 

I cannot thank all the sponsors enough for choosing me as the winner of the 2013 giveaway. I went into shock when David from Fishnet rang to tell me, and I don’t think I made any sense when I had to ring him back because it still hadn’t sunk in properly. 

The grin is on my face every time we go fishing as I get asked where I got the boat from, and I let everyone know the distributor is Bayview Marine. I think I could have sold it about 20 times, but no way am I ever selling as I’m having so much fun with this fantastic boat, motor and trailer.

Winning the Polar Kraft Bass TX165 Pro — fitted with a Mercury EFI 60-hp 4-stoke outboard — on a Nautica trailer was something I’ve dreamed about. Fishing from this fantastic boat is unreal. The stability is unbelievable! You can walk around without worrying about falling in while chasing that fish of a lifetime on the front deck, which has lockable rod storage and holds six rods plus another storage locker for general items.

The ride is very smooth in most conditions and any bumps are taken out with the very comfy seats. The back deck features a large livewell with removable divider, two storage bins that hold three tackle trays, two batteries, fishing pedestal seat, and a 45-lt fuel tank. The full roller trailer is a dream to tow. On the trip home after picking up this incredible prize it was like not having any thing behind you. I was checking my rearview mirrors all the way to make sure it was still there.  

I really cannot take the smile off my face when I’m in my fantastic Polar Kraft Bass TX 165 Pro,  especially when everyone is looking at you go past or when I’m at the ramp, car pack, or at the garage getting fuel. At least one local is wanting to buy this boat after his fishing trip with me last week. There are others who are interested too in buying one similar as the set up is perfect for fishing these areas as it’s like having one of the best tournament boats at a much more reasonable price.
