Elimination Draw

While we encourage you to watch the broadcast, you do not have to be on-line in order to win. We will contact the winner directly.

The final name drawn will win a 2020 Bayliner VR4 Outboard. Click here to watch a virtual tour of the boat. Quartermaster Marine will store the boat and have it ready for you to pick up in Spring 2021. It will be serviced and all set for summer enjoyment, plus the trailer will be inspected and ready to go!

  • Included is a galvanized swing tongue trailer with brakes as well as mooring and bow snap on covers.
  • The VR4 is a design with high gunnels that creates more passenger space, with under-seat storage and safety in mind. It comes with a 115 Hp Mercury Pro SX Outboard engine.
  • With a roomy cockpit, this 18’ Bayliner has an extreme sport tower with an integrated Bimini top to provide protection from the sun and stability for anyone who skis or wakeboards.
  • Equipped with automatic bilge pump, digital depth sounder, and bow speakers.
  • Stainless Steel Package for cup holders, fuel fill, thru hull, horn, vent, bow hatch, latches and rub rail.

The grand prize for our elimination draw is a Bayliner VR4 Outboard boat and trailer. There is no option to take cash in lieu of the grand prize.
