2011 Mandurah Boat Show Club Marine http://www.clubmarine.com.au/
Year after year the Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show celebrates all that is good about the WA summer – enjoying being out on the water.

This year, organisers are welcoming a special guest to the Show, who is looking forward to speaking to visitors about his experiences in the great outdoors! The 2012 Show ambassador is TV personality Tom Williams, best known for his work as a presenter on The Great Outdoors.

Show Director Peter Woods said he was excited to have Tom as special guest at the Show this year and said that he was well suited to promote the theme of this year’s event, which was tailored around getting back to basics and enjoying the outdoor water lifestyle.

'What we have always tried to promote at the Mandurah Boat Show is that Western Australia has amazing waterways, and we should all be encouraged to get out there and use them,' Peter said.



'Tom Williams has spent much of his career promoting outdoor leisure and will come to the Show this year armed with plenty of stories that will hopefully inspire people to get outdoors.'

Peter said that the inclusion of Tom Williams at this year’s show will help in promoting boating lifestyle in Western Australia. He said the industry has faced a few difficulties in recent times, and it was up to events such as these to encourage and promote boating and water leisure activities, and get more people involved.

'What we are really aiming to do this year is encourage people to get involved and to try something new. The 2012 Mandurah Boat Show has been designed with this idea in mind and visitors will be impressed with the new and improved features of the Show,' Peter said.

'As in previous years, the Club Marine Stage will feature chef Bart Beek’s cooking demonstrations, plus product reviews and fashion parades. The Aquatank Fishing stage will again have a cast of presenters including show favourite Hodgie the Barefoot Fisherman, and The West Australian columnist Mike Roennfeldt.'

'However the 2012 Show will have improved entertainment targeting the entire family. We’ll be introducing a fishing competition for kids, with great prizes to be won. We’ll have kayak demonstrations and the opportunity to have a go at kayaking on the water.

The Pirate Show will be back for the younger audiences, and the kids activity area will be set up with bouncy castles and face painting,' Peter said.



'We are also setting up a new boating demonstration area, where people can come along to watch regular boating demos and learn the basics of how to drive a boat. The Department of Transport will be there to give presentations and information on boat safety and skipper’s tickets,' he said.

The Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show is now in its 12th year and is held at the Mandurah Offshore fishing and Sailing Club at the award winning Mandurah Ocean Marina.

The Show is the third biggest boat show in Australia, with more than 200 exhibitors annually displaying more than 650 boats; and attracting 20,000 boating enthusiasts over the three days.

The prospectus is available now for those interested in exhibiting, and can be downloaded from the website www.mandurahboatshow.com.au Further information can be obtained by calling (08) 9386 9666 or email info@mandurahboatshow.com.au
