Yamaha is extending for another four years its sponsorship of Bassmaster Tournament Trail events, the company announced in a statement.

Yamaha will be an official premier engine sponsor through 2024, according to the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society.

“It is great to have a partner like Yamaha, who is dedicated to helping anglers get incredible performance out of their equipment, as well as active in vital conservation missions,” B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin said.

For the 2021 season, Yamaha will power the boats of 32 Elite Series anglers. The company will be a premier sponsor for the Bassmaster Classic, Bassmaster Elite Series, Bassmaster Opens Series, Carhartt Bassmaster College Series, Mossy Oak Fishing Bassmaster High School Series, Bassmaster Team Championship and the grass-roots TNT Fireworks B.A.S.S. Nation regional and championship tournaments.

“The team at B.A.S.S. has impressed us in recent years with flexibility in the face of challenges and their efforts to bring newcomers into the sport of bass fishing,” said Yamaha Marine business unit president Ben Speciale.

B.A.S.S. and Yamaha will also work together to promote sustainability and natural resource conservation through the Yamaha Rightwaters program, which “advocates and educates to protect our aquatic resources,” said Gene Gilliland, B.A.S.S. conservation director.
