Gold Coast Expo at 85% capacity
Organisers expect biggest ever turn-out for March boat show.
With just over a month to go before the opening of the Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo, organisers have announced that more than 85% of exhibitor space is already sold or reserved across the event’s two marinas and display circuit.
“This year’s boat show from 17-19 March will absolutely be our biggest ever,” said event & marketing manager Emma Brown.
“Our growing list of major first-releases spans the full boating spectrum – everything from luxury yachts to tenders, kayaks to jet skis, engines and accessories to fishing equipment – in fact you’ll find everything you need for you and your family to have fun on the water.
“We are receiving the strongest support from our valued marine industry exhibitors in seven years and there are more exhibitors coming onboard every day to showcase their products for the first time at our award-winning boat show.”
In addition to the exhibits announced previously, the Multihull Group will be showing the latest Lagoon 42 catamaran by Beneteau billed as “a new breed of cruising catamaran” while Northside Marine will be showing the 2017 Jeanneau NC9 motor yacht powered by a Volvo Penta 260hp engine.
Marine audio specialists Fusion Entertainment will be displaying the the new RV-FS402 Sound-Panel shallow-mount speaker system for the first time in Australia as well as the new portable StereoActive sound system launched last year.
