Naden Pink Boat Tour

This summer, in just two short months, The PINK Boat Tour, co-sponsored by Naden Boats and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure North Bay raised over $20,000 in support of the breast cancer research.

The 14’ Pink Naden Fisherman travelled several thousand kilometers to over 14 events in Northern Ontario.  Whether it was WingFest in Dorset or the Alban Canada Day Weekend, the Naden Boat dealers embraced the fundraiser, while at the same time taking the opportunity to chat about the unique boat building techniques used when crafting each Naden boat.

In the end 5,000 tickets were sold for a chance to win the Pink Naden Aluminum Boat Package. Valued at $7K, the prize package included a 14’ Pink Naden Fisherman, built by Temagami Boat Manufacturing in Northern Ontario, a 15hp 4-stroke Tohatsu engine, a Yacht Club Trailer donated by BW Marine Products in North Bay, two Salus Marine PFDs, a hand-crafted cover created by Temagami Marine and a safety and mooring package donated by Mariner’s Cove in Mactier, ON.
