Robalo R160 Up for Auction at NE Boat Show

The Massachusetts Marine Trades Educational Trust is auctioning off a 2016 Robalo R160 boat package, complete with a 70-hp Yamaha outboard and a matching trailer, as part of its annual fundraising efforts. The auction will run through the final day of the New England Boat Show (Sunday 2/19), with the highest bidder winning the boat package.

Fifty-percent of the proceeds will go directly to a MMTET scholarship fund that provides assistance to students looking to pursue a career in the marine industry.

The remaining 50% will be donated to the MMTET’s KIDS in BOATING initiative, which aims to get more kids boating in a safe and smart manner while at the same time having fun on the water and enjoying the boating lifestyle.

The boat package was donated by 3A Marine in Hingham, MA, and Robalo Boats.
