The Yamaha Marine Group announced its support Tuesday for the Recreational Fishing Alliance as it conducts a raffle giving people a chance to win a Contender 22 Sport center console fishing boat powered by a Yamaha F300 outboard.

The boat, which will come with an AmeraTrail custom aluminum trailer, is part of a package valued at $85,000.

"The RFA is dedicated to protecting the anglers’ rights, as well as ensuring long-term sustainability for U.S. saltwater fisheries," Yamaha Marine Group president Ben Speciale said in a statement. "We are pleased to help them continue to achieve these goals through the funds raised in the raffle.”

Tickets are available now through a special page on the RFA website and cost $25.

Participants can increase their chances of winning by purchasing five tickets for $100. The site accepts credit cards and PayPal payments. Ticket stubs will be sent to those who enter online.
