COMMEMORATIVE ELIMINATOR BOAT HONORING THE 50TH RUNNING OF DAYTONA 500 DONATED TO DARRELL GWYNN FOUNDATION

Special watercraft to be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson for the benefit of theDarrell Gwynn Foundation

 

Davie, FL:  The Darrell Gwynn Foundation (DGF) announced Eliminator Boats has generously donated a commemorative craft celebrating the 50th running of the Daytona 500 to its organization. This one-of-a-kind boat will be signed by all the starting drivers of the 2008 Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and will then be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction event in West Palm Beach, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting DGF.

This incredible boat will be on display at DGF’s Miccosukee Resort & Gaming Hot Rods and Reels Charity Fishing Tournament at Daytona International Speedway’s Lake Lloyd on February 15th, where many of the drivers will be on-hand to sign it. After its tour at the Speedway, it then immediately heads south to West Palm Beach for its auction just over a month later.

 “Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to Eliminator Boats for offering this unique and unexpected donation to our mission,” said Darrell Gwynn, founder and president of DGF.  “This boat will create a massive buzz as it first enjoys the waters at Daytona International Speedway’s Lake Lloyd and then again when it hits the stage at the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction event. It will be a must-have for any NASCAR and boating enthusiast, who can know they are also supporting a worthy cause.”

The 27’ Daytona boat was created to capture and reflect the excitement that has long been associated with the iconic Daytona 500 race.  Designed with Eliminator’s signature style and packed with numerous upgrades, the commemorative watercraft embodies speed, elegance, grandeur and fun. Eliminator Daytona was named the Official Recreational Power Boat of the Daytona International Speedway. It seats six, weighs 4,500 pounds and is powered by an Ilmor Engineering Viper V10 that produces 625 horsepower and 600 torque.    The boat is 26’10” long with a 100” beam, with custom upholstery and custom gel coat graphics specially designed to incorporate the details of the 50th Daytona 500 logo. 

“We are delighted to be an integral part of the Daytona 500 and the important work that DGF spearheads,” said Brett Seber of Eliminator Boats.  “Our 30-history has always been rich with supporting important causes, and this is a natural fit.”

The boat is estimated to be worth more than $250,000.  Officials anticipate the bidding at Barrett-Jackson to be brisk for a boat with this pedigree.

Eliminator Boats is a leader in the field of custom created boats. The company prides itself on having one of the most aggressive and ambitious new model development and tooling programs in the industry.  Technicians use the latest and most advanced design and construction technologies available.  The philosophy at Eliminator is that every boat  built is treated as an individual, custom creation, tailored to the express wishes and desires of its intended owner.
