Bay Cat Twin Vee powercat set as FLIBS raffle prize

The smooth-riding prize is a 2017 170 Bay Cat Twin Vee powered by Suzuki.

Most people come to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to buy a boat, but this year a lucky guest will win one through the generous partnership of Bay Cat Twin Vee, Magic Tilt and Suzuki.

The smooth-riding prize is a 2017 170 Bay Cat Twin Vee powered by Suzuki, the perfect bay power catamaran for weekend family excursions, inland waterway fishing or use as a tender.

Great for new and experienced boaters, it comes equipped with a 60-hp Suzuki outboard and a Magic Tilt trailer, all valued at $36,868. The boat will be on display in the main lobby of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center show location.

"We are honored to have our new Twin Vee Bay Cat participate in such a great charity event at the boat show," Twin Vee PowerCats CEO Joseph Visconti said in a statement.

"As our new management team focuses on perfecting the best-riding boat on the water, we also like to take the time to enrich the lives of our employees, our community and charitable organizations that help those in need.”

The 57th edition of the Fort Lauderdale show — the largest in-water boat show in the world — will be held Nov. 3-7.

Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Children's Diagnostic and Treatment Center of Fort Lauderdale and Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale. Raffle tickets are $10 per entry and limited to 50 tickets per person.

The winning ticket will be selected and announced on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 1 p.m. at the boat display in the convention center. The winner does not need to be present and will be notified.

The winner is responsible for all applicable state and federal taxes. The boat will be available for pickup by the winner after the show at Twin Vee's Fort Lauderdale dealer location.

"Three great companies have come together to raise awareness for two amazing charities that do so many important things for so many people in the community," Show Management vice president of consumer marketing Brett Keating said in a statement. "Because of outstanding partners like these, we are able to have a meaningful raffle at the boat show."

Show Management, which has produced FLIBS since 1976, and Trade Only Today are part of Active Interest Media.
