A New Zealand company has signed a sponsorship deal with last year’s Bassmaster Classic Champion, Ott DeFoe, as it bids to gain a foothold in the US market.

Auckland-based RAILBLAZA, which was founded in 2010, is a fast-growing maker of marine components. Its CEO, Ross Pratt, said: “We have been looking for a partner for some time to help us establish the company in the US bass boat market.

“Ott checked off all the boxes and we are very impressed with his professional approach. We look forward to working with him on both promoting our current product range, helping guide our R&D programme and further strengthening our relationship with the White River Marine Group.”

DeFoe said he is impressed by the spirit of innovation at RAILBLAZA and its dedication to growing its business in the fibreglass boat market. “These guys are really doing their homework on what boaters need. I have no doubt that through working together, we will bring some truly innovative and resourceful products to market that anglers will really appreciate.”

RAILBLAZA has signed on as the presenting sponsor of DeFoe’s YouTube channel.
