Capt Peacock Raises $43,500 For Conservation

Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions’ donation of a 9-day trip of Peacock Bass fishing in Brazil’s Amazon for eight people aboard their newly launched luxury yacht the Rio Negro Queen sold for $43,500 at Dallas Safari Club’s annual convention on Saturday, January 8, 2016.
The trip was purchased by Curtis and Patti Hamilton of Arlington, Texas and the money will be utilized by DSC for Outdoor Conservation. Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions’ President Leonardo Leao was more than ecstatic at the selling price.
“We – and I say ‘we’ because Capt Peacock is a team of absolutely fantastic people – are thrilled that our donated trip sold for what it did,” Leao said following the event. “It was the biggest seller of the evening and from what I understand the biggest sale of the entire convention. I think that shows what a great experience we can and do offer.”
Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions is no stranger to raising money for DSC and its outdoor endeavors. In the past five years, Capt Peacock has helped raise almost $350,000 for DSC and its donations have consistently raised the most money at Convention.
Leao reiterated, “Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions is always pleased to give back. It is part of who we are as a company, part of our mission statement, and it’s the right thing to do. And I expect that our donation to Safari Club International will do just as well at their convention come February.”
