Water sports boat manufacturer Nautique announced its continued partnership with GM Marine Engine Technology as the presenting sponsor of the Masters Water Ski & Wakeboard tournament.

This two-year agreement includes the 57th and 58th Masters, which will be held during the Memorial Day weekend in 2016 and 2017 at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Ga. Nautique said the tournament is an invitation-only event that features the world’s best athletes in slalom, tricks, jump, wakeboard and wakeskate.

“GM Marine is pleased to reinforce our partnership with Nautique and PCM by committing to sponsor the prestigious Masters Water Ski & Wakeboard tournament for the next two years,” GM director of marine OEM sales Patrick Koenigknecht said in a statement.

“GM Marine, along with our partners, are committed to providing these world-class athletes with our world-class all-new fifth-generation engines that leverage our decades of experience with the latest technologies to deliver an unprecedented balance of performance and efficiency.”

In 2015 Nautique Boats, PCM Engines, and GM Marine Engine Technology worked together to introduce direct-injection technology to the inboard marine market with record-breaking results on the water.

“Nautique is proud to be partnered with GM Marine Engine Technology as presenting sponsor of the Masters. Working together we have not only enhanced the performance of Masters competitors, but also brought industry-changing technology to Nautique owners and enthusiasts,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said.

“Each year we witness history being made on Robin Lake at the most prestigious watersports event in the world. Don’t miss it!”
