GMSV to provide the ultimate tow vehicle for the new 8m Holy Ship across Season 10 of Fishing and Adventure.
General Motors Specialty Vehicles, a newly launched General Motors venture operating within Australia and New Zealand, has signed on as primary vehicle sponsor of the New Zealand television show, Fishing and Adventure.
Fishing and Adventure is celebrating its 10th year, a fantastic milestone for a New Zealand production company. “Over the years the team has grown, and the adventures have become more intrepid. The ability to secure a large trailer boat from Surtees with the best tow vehicle on the market to take us around the country was paramount” says Scott Parry, Presenter and Company Director of Fishing and Adventure.
Being able to tow the new Holy Ship easily and safely allows the show to grow and to provide exciting new content and experiences for its viewers.
“The Chevrolet Silverado HD was built with one thing in mind, and that’s to tow,” said General Manager of GMSV New Zealand, Matthew Taylor.
“As the official vehicle sponsor of the Fishing and Adventure, we wanted the opportunity to demonstrate the awesome capability of the biggest Chevrolet Silverado in our range.”
"The new HD Silverado is epic!! It's perfect for towing such a big rig and
offers plenty of extra comfort and safety for the crew while travelling New Zealand filming episodes for the show. I was initially a bit concerned that this truck would be a bit hard to manoeuvre but it is honestly super easy to drive and there are cameras for absolutely everything. It drives like a car, tows like a truck and is an out-and-out beast of a vehicle" says Parry.
The HD packs a massive 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V-8 into the engine bay and, with an all-new 10- speed transmission, delivers one of GM’s toughest drivetrain/powertrain combinations to date.
“But don’t let its rugged looks deceive you”, admits Taylor, “It is loaded with safety features and technology-related attributes.”
Fishing and Adventure will continue their long-term partnership with Ebbett Hamilton who also have the GMSV brand under their umbrella.
“We are fortunate to be able to maintain our 6-year relationship with the Ebbett Group and bring GMSV in to the Sponsorship family. The team at GMSV are great to deal with and we are stoked to showcase such a premium vehicle” adds Parry.
The new season of Fishing and Adventure will go to air on TVNZ1 mid-August 2022.
