Hundreds of boats from more than 40 exhibitors based in South Australia and across the country have booked the allocated floorspace at the Adelaide Convention Centre to capacity, as the 55th Adelaide Boat Show is set to open for three days from June 28. Whether it’s a love of fishing, water skiing, wake boarding or just paddling around SA’s unique waterways, the Adelaide Boat Show has something for every water-loving South Australian.
Elite Ski Boats will be demonstrating their patented Surfgate & Power Wedge III Technology using an electronic simulator. This integrated surf platform for ski boats generates the longest, most perfect peeling waves, customisable by size, shape and length to suit the capabilities of all riders. Elite’s all new Malibu Wakesetter 22 LSV will likely be one of the stars of the show, with their Malibu and Axis boats fitted with the all new ‘Malibu Engines’, sporting a brand-new metallic finish that will definitely appeal to all Port Adelaide Power footy fans. Malibu and Axis are the only boats of their calibre to be built here in Australia, and enjoy substantial re-sale value, along with renowned dealer support.
For the first time in Australia, Hobie will present the Mirage Passport pedal kayak. Hobie is world recognised for designing pedal kayaks that are fun and functional. Deploying their tried-and-true Mirage Drive, Hobie has made it possible to reach isolated beaches and remote waters easier than ever before. Every feature built into the Passport is designed with entertainment in mind. Whether in open water or fishing the flats, Hobie has added great features such as a vertical accessory tube and moulded-in rod holders. Dual mounting tracks keep accessories within reach while the 8” Twist-n-Seal Hatch keeps everything dry. The easy-to-use steering system and simplified version of their twist-and-stow rudder puts navigation at your fingertips (and a smile on your face). Also never-before seen at the show, the Mirage Outback and Compass Duo, each with unique features and design that make Hobie the world leader in pedal driven kayaks.
