Supra Boats has partnered with Bonnier Corp.’s events and entertainment group as the new title sponsor and exclusive towboat of the Pro Wakeboard Tour.

The 2015 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour will feature Supra’s SE550 as the official towboat.

The tour will include a large pro men’s purse, exposure with digital-video distribution, more than 30 webisodes showcasing athletes and sponsor coverage, a special and extra issue of Wakeboarding Magazine highlighting the tour and customized on-site audience experiences.

“Supra Boats and the family at Skier’s Choice is ecstatic to headline the four-stop Pro Wakeboard Tour in 2015 and beyond,” Rick Tinker, president of Skier’s Choice, manufacturer of Supra Boats, said in a statement. “We have been in the market for over 35 years and always strive to revolutionize the industry with innovative products. At the end of last year’s World Wakeboard Championships, we had an overwhelming number of rider responses and knew then that we had the product to pursue the Pro Wakeboard Tour.”

“The PWT athletes can expect to see extreme wakes that set the new industry standard in the business throughout the season, and we are excited that Bonnier Corp.’s Events & Entertainment Group’s 23-year track record of experience will create unprecedented exposure for the sport and Supra, more than any tour in the past,” Tinker said.

The 2015 Supra boats are powered by the 6.2L Ford Raptor Engine by Indmar.

"We are excited to partner with Supra Boats to power the tour,” said Scott Clack, vice president of Indmar. “The PWT is the proving ground for the highest-performing boats and motors in the industry."
