Nautique presented a 2014 Super Air Nautique G21 valued at $120,000 to the Falconer family of Lewisville, Texas, at the Dallas Boat Show.

As part of the Nautique Cares initiative, the G21 was donated to benefit As Our Own, a non-profit organization working in India that rescues vulnerable girls from enslavement and exploitation.

During the past year As Our Own has been accepting donations that also served as an opportunity to win the boat. The Falconer family made a donation and was selected as the winner of the G21.

In late 2013, after visiting India on a service trip, Nautique employees were determined to help As Our Own with their vision, which led to the donation of the G21 for the grand prize in the As Our Own sweepstakes. The sweepstakes raised significant money and awareness for the organization.

“The Nautique team couldn’t be more excited for the Falconer family to win this one-of-a-kind Super Air Nautique G21,” Nautique president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “Giving back is part of our culture at Nautique, and teaming up with As Our Own to raise awareness and funds through this sweepstakes was a great opportunity to help a wonderful organization that is doing great work. Truly Nautique cares.”
