Triton Boats signs deal with B.A.S.S.

Publish date:

Triton Boats signed a new sponsorship agreement with the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, America's largest bass fishing organization.

Effective immediately, Triton was elevated to the premier sponsorship level, strengthening its ties to the 500,000-member B.A.S.S. organization.

"Triton is extremely proud to be named a premier sponsor of B.A.S.S.," company founder Earl Bentz said in a statement. "We have been a supporting sponsor of the organization for some time and feel our elevation to the highest sponsorship level symbolizes our deep commitment not only to B.A.S.S. and its members, but to the entire sport of bass fishing."

Reflecting this commitment, Triton officials recently unveiled the 2011 Federation Nation Alliance Program and a revamped Triton Gold contingency program that includes even bigger payouts for the 2011 tournament season.

Tailored to B.A.S.S. Federation Nation anglers, Triton's Alliance Program includes bonus money for winning state championships and divisional titles - all the way up to the Bassmaster Classic - and culminates with the possibility of as much as $144,000 for qualified anglers.

The Triton Gold contingency program enters the year with increased payouts at more than 3,000 events nationwide. Several B.A.S.S. events are included and most qualified events offer anglers a potential bonus of $7,000 per tournament win, giving Triton owners one of the richest contingency programs in the industry.
