Pathfinder 2200 TRS Boat

Maverick Boat Group auctioned a new Pathfinder 2200 TRS to raise hurricane relief funds. 

Maverick Boat Group said it raised $48,500 by auctioning a new Pathfinder 2200 TRS and will give all of the money to people who were victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma in the fishing community.

The online auction had 22 registrants push the bidding up to the final number.

MBG plans to distribute all of the funds through a few select organizations to ensure that it is spread to multiple geographical areas and reaches those most in need.

“We want to thank our partners Yamaha, Power Pole and Ameratrail trailers who contributed to this effort and all those who participated in the auction,” MBG president and CEO Scott Deal said in a statement.

“Through their help we were able to reach our goal of maximizing our contribution and generating the funds quickly. Hopefully this money will aid its recipients in getting back out on the water sooner and starting to generate income again for their families,” Deal said.
