Nautique announced today that it has signed a five-year agreement with the Victorian Water Ski Association to be the exclusive official towboat of the Moomba Masters through 2015.

Three-event competitors will ski exclusively behind the Ski Nautique 200, and wakeboard competitors will ride behind the Super Air Nautique 230.

"We are extremely excited to continue our longstanding partnership with VWSA and provide the highest-quality boats for the Moomba Masters," Nautique president/CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. "We look forward to continuing our support in growing and promoting towed water sports in Australia and around the world."

More than 700,000 spectators annually watch the Moomba Masters during the six-day Moomba Festival in downtown Melbourne, Australia. The festival will run March 9-14, 2011.
