Bluewater Rigging Vancouver announced today that they will donate a 2018 Seakeeper SK02 Gyro valued at $30,000 to the Pacific Salmon Foundation Gala auction on May 11, 2018.

The Vancouver Gala Dinner & Auction is The Pacific Salmon Foundation flagship fundraiser and largest event of the year, raising vital funds for volunteer streamkeepers across British Columbia and the Yukon.

“Support generated through dinners gets reinvested in communities, which is then magnified with additional dollars raised by PSF,” said Dr. Brian Riddell, PSF CEO and President.  “But the success of our fundraising auctions largely depends on generous donations from businesses like Bluewater Rigging. Many of our dinner attendees are avid anglers and boaters. We’re both excited and grateful for the opportunity to offer them such a unique and high-end item through our live auction.”

“At the very core of all Bluewater customers, is their deep appreciation and love for the water in the Pacific West Coast”, said Bluewater’s Founder and operator Andy MacDonald. “The best way we can  give back to the beauty of the Pacific West Coast is by investing in the stewards of our lakes, rivers and oceans. Bluewater is grateful for the opportunity to partner with The Pacific Salmon Foundation which will raise critical funds for the volunteer streamkeepers that PSF supports. When you consider the ability of these volunteer groups to leverage grants an average of 7:1, this donation could generate some considerable support”.


Seakeeper won best in new gear and equipment at the 2017 The Vancouver International Boat Show.
