Yamaha Marine’s National Fishing Team program (NFT) allows local/regional tournament anglers and fishing guides to work with local Yamaha dealers to gain a Yamaha NFT sponsorship. Once the local dealer and Yamaha accept an angler into the program, the angler can purchase discounted motors with delayed payment options or cash purchases, directly from the local dealer sponsor. In exchange, the angler represents the dealership through Yamaha Outboards marketing and promotional efforts within local and regional salt and freshwater tournament trails. Yamaha National Fishing Team anglers must also participate in local boat shows, open houses and other events connected with their dealer sponsors.
All applications must be submitted online through yamahamarinenft.com and are subject to approval by the selected dealer and Yamaha Marine. The term of each agreement is one year from the date of acceptance into the program. Angler applicants are also required to accept and adhere to the Yamaha Angler Code of Ethics before completing the application.
