Collins Marine new importer of Quicksilver Boats

by Collins Marine on 12 Mar 2013
Quicksilver 605 Open - 1 ..
Collins Marine of Sydney has been appointed the Australian importer and distributor of Quicksilver Boats from Europe.

Quicksilver Boats are manufactured by the Belgium based company, Brunswick Marine Europe.

With a tagline that encapsulates the boating lifestyle: 'Life is Now', the award winning Quicksilver Boats range covers several segments of the market from the offshore fishing range to the contemporary sporty end being represented by the family day boats in various styles.

There are 27 different models in the total range - 19 of which will be available in Australia through Collins Marine - with several models winning Boat of the Year awards throughout Europe over the past 3 years.

Intelligent design and beautiful contemporary styling means these boats offer great versatility for a fun day out, no matter what the use. Responding to our customer research, Safety has been designed into key aspects of the boat.



One of the first boats to go on show will be the Award winning Quicksilver 645 Cabin fitted with the New 150hp Mercury 4 Stroke engine.

'Quicksilver produces a really beautifully styled boat, with classic European lines,' says Peter Collins. 'It's very different looking from the stock standard fishing and day boats around.'

Competitively priced with quality options and boats for all types of usage - from fisher to family - the Quicksilver range boasts quality and style in the European tradition, hailing from Brunswick Europe, which is based in Belgium.

A selection of the Quicksilver range will make their Australian debut at the NSW Rosehill Boat Show – March 16th-17th and will then follow the national Boat Show circuit: Sanctuary Cove, Melbourne, Sydney and others.



Collins states that they are currently in the process of seeking further distributors around the country, particularly WA and Queensland.

Collins Marine also distributes Arvor Boats in Australia.
