Brig inflatables make a bigger splash in WA

BRIG inflatables heading West. Sirocco Marine
Do Western Australian sailors know something that the rest don't? The popularity of Brig inflatables in Western Australia has been so marked that it has prompted a move to larger premises. Based in Fremantle, the new operation will be known as Sirocco Marine West and forms an expansion of the Sirocco Marine national network.

Sirocco Marine West will have the largest display of Brig inflatable boats in Western Australia. It will be headed by Mark Mawby, a boating industry identity with more than 6 years experience with the Brig brand and a lifetime in the marine business. Keen boaters in the thriving western state will already be quite familiar with Mark’s previous retail operation which dovetailed with the successful Riviera dealership at Fremantle.

Brig is Europe’s leading brand of Rigid Inflatable Boats or ‘RIBs’ as they’re affectionately known, while here in Australia Brig is now our biggest seller. This new dealership is reflective of growing popularity of RIBs which have made their mark in all categories of boating, from tenders to runabouts, for recreation and commercial use.

Sirocco Marine West will be a true one stop shop and includes a fully equipped service facility which can offer prompt attention to routine servicing and minor repairs through to major engine overhauls. There’s even a Honda dealership right next door with a range of engines and accessories to suit the Brigs and other models in stock.

With the largest stock of Brig inflatables under one roof, Sirocco Marine West has many of the most popular models in stock ready for inspection. Direct access to the WA operation is simply a click away at the national Sirocco Marine website, www.siroccomarine.com.au or contact Mark Mawby direct for an in-depth account of what’s in store Tel: 0439 900 540 or email: mark@siroccomarinewest.com.au
