Brimming with exciting features and activities for the whole family, the 2007 Club Marine Melbourne Boat Show from July 5-9, is a one-stop-boating shop that will entice boating enthusiasts and novices alike.

Wall-to-wall boats and marine accessories will fill the entire Melbourne Exhibition Centre; including runabouts, canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, catamarans, cruisers, personal watercraft, inflatables, luxury cruisers and high-performance boats- everything from 4 to 35 feet is ready to board and buy!

Lindsay Grenfell, Boating Industry Association Victoria Chief Executive Officer, promises the show will be a huge event, set to appeal to every member of your family.

'The 2007 event is shaping up to be an excellent boat show and once again we are bigger and better than ever, with more exhibitors than we have had in previous years,' says Lindsay.

'An added bonus with this year’s show is that it falls during the school holidays, opening us up to a host of family activities. With all the new products I have seen, this show is an ideal opportunity to bring the family along, look at a variety of products, make a purchase and have a good time!'



As the Southern Hemisphere’s largest undercover boat show, it will certainly be an impressive display! Drop by and check out the latest in engines, electronics and all types of marine accessories, or take the chance to grab a bargain from the wide variety of gear and accessories on sale. This is your chance to get up close to millions of dollars worth of boats, accessories, fishing equipment and even some diving gear.

The Show is full of information on how to get started in boating, with a host of knowledgeable marine experts on hand to answer any queries you may have. A complimentary boat handling course voucher will be provided with any new boat purchased at the show, while the Victorian Coast Guard will be on hand to conduct boat licence testing each day.

By visiting the show and entering the major prize draw you could also win a Savage boating package valued at over $40,000 from Mercury Marine, plus the chance to win a fantastic daily prize in the ‘Tinnie and Tackle Competition’.
