Companies roll out springtime promotions


Yamaha Marine Group, Glacier Bay and World Cat recently announced spring sales promotions.

Yamaha Marine Group launched its "Two Stroke Celebration Sales Event," a promotion designed to add extra value to a purchase just as the boating season begins.

The promotion provides the purchasing consumer a credit of up to $3,000, based on MSRP, toward the purchase of goods and/or services available at the authorized participating Yamaha outboard dealer that sold the eligible Yamaha outboard at no extra cost to the purchasing consumer.

Eligible Yamaha outboards include new 8- through 300-hp two-stroke models that are sold, warranty registered and delivered to the consumer from April 1 through April 30. Additional terms, conditions and procedures apply.
