The annual competition was run by KTS Trading Sdn Bhd,  the sole distributor of Suzuki Marine products in Malaysia in collaboration with its dealer Zakuan Lam Sdn Bhd.

The event involved 15 boats powered by Suzuki Outboard Motor, each with five anglers on board. According to the organiser, the fishing competition aimed to foster closer rapport between dealers and end users.

“Through such competition, it is evident that boat owners prefer Suzuki Outboard Motor, especially with its ‘Ultimate 4’ stroke engine featuring ‘Lean Burn Technology’ (fuel-saving) and low-noise emission.

“A discount voucher worth RM3,000 was also given to each participant for the purchase of Suzuki 4 stroke engine 115hp and above,” KTS Trading said in a statement.
