Boatsetter Fishing Tournament Sponsorship Details

Having Boatsetter as a sponsor means 50% of profits from boats booked through our platform for your tournament will be distributed to the tournament organizer or the organization benefiting from the tournament (i.e. a nonprofit or charity). Profits are limited to the amount that Boatsetter keeps after payouts to the boat owner and/or captain, insurance, taxes, and credit card fees.

Pro tip: This only applies to tournaments with boat entries. It does not apply to land-based tournaments.

Payment is limited to profit sharing from boats booked and registered for the tournament during tournament dates. Boatsetter is not committing to out-of-pocket sponsorship fees, and there is no guaranteed payment if no Boatsetter boats are booked for the tournament.

Last but not least, as a sponsor, Boatsetter must be mentioned in tournament marketing. We’ll share a marketing kit neatly assembled just for you.
