Kennesaw, Ga. – Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, again provided a new side-by-side (SxS), the Viking VI Special Edition (SE), to the SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation (NSW) for auction at its annual fundraiser near San Diego, CA.
Assembled in the USA at Yamaha’s Newnan, GA, factory, the Viking VI SE raised $17,000 towards the organization’s mission of supporting SEAL members’ families. This marks Yamaha’s fourth-consecutive year of aiding NSW, totaling nearly $90,000 in funding for the much-deserved recipients.
The SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation is a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 that raises awareness and funds for special programs in direct support of the NSW families on a local, national and global scale. Further details about the NSW organization and fundraiser can be found at www.SupportOurWarriors.org and www.SealFamilyFoundation.org.
“Yamaha is honored to continue its support of the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation and its important mission of assisting the families of those who defend our freedoms,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group marketing manager. “We know this highly respected organization’s event and donor support will continue to raise awareness and assistance for the brave SEAL-NSW families.”
"Yamaha has been a great supporter of our event over the past four years, and their vehicles are an auction favorite that have now helped raise nearly $90,000 for SEAL members' families," said William R. Fenick, CAPT, USN (Ret), executive director for SEAL-NSW. “We are dedicated to supporting the needs of these important families, and partners like Yamaha allow us to provide the right programs—both now and in the future.”
In addition to all of the standard attributes of the Yamaha Viking line, the 2017 Viking VI SE is available in a high-quality Midnight Blue Metallic painted bodywork featuring aluminum wheels, a soft sun top, mud flaps, over fenders and under seat storage, all at an MSRP of $14,999.
