Seakeeper launched a promotion that will pay entry fees for summer sportfish tournaments with the purchase and refit of a gyro stabilizer.

The company also is sponsoring many of the tournaments and will hit the East Coast from June to November with its Viking 43 demonstration boat.

The tournament offer covers entry fees of as much as $7,500 if a Seakeeper stabilization gyro is purchased before or during the following events: the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic (June 3-10); Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament (June 8-16); White Marlin Open (Aug. 6-10); Pirate's Cove Billfish Tournament (Aug. 13-17); and Mid-Atlantic $500,000 (Aug. 19-24).

Seakeeper's summer demo tour includes stops at many of the tournaments, starting at the Big Rock event in Morehead City, N.C. Demos are available July 5-8 in Newport, R.I., and at the company's dealer/servicing installer, MacDougalls' Cape Cod Marine Service, July 13-15 in Falmouth, Mass.

The Viking 43 then stops July 19-22 on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, around the Boston Big Game Club's Monster Shark event. It continues Aug. 3-9 in Block Island, R.I., for the Tri-State Canyon Shootout. The demos continue Aug. 10-16 in the New York area and at the Mid-Atlantic $500,000 in Cape May, N.J.

Demos do not need to be pre-scheduled, but those interested are asked to call Brook Streit at 203-822-4184.
