It's back after being missing for some time. The 2nd annual Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo will be held over the week end of 16 & 17 March, 2013, 10am to 5pm at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and will feature exhibitors supplying goods and services to the professional and leisure sailor.

Situated on beautiful Pittwater on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is NSW's largest sailing club and combined with its extensive racing, cruising and dinghy programs, lures many sailors to the club. The club is home to over 1750 members, over 300 yachts, 70 hardstand boats and 100 dinghies.

The Club Marine Pittwater Sail Expo will feature an extensive array of exhibitors, displays and entertainment covering all areas of sailing and will be a family friendly, community based event that will showcase the RPAYC. There will be no charge to enter.

And there'll be so much to see.

Seawind are excited to be part of it. On display will be the ever popular Seawind 1000XL & the award winning Seawind 1160. They will be in the Service Marina off B-Arm.

Australian company U.S. Yachts will have the Hunter 36 and the new Salona 35 on display, as well as many other exciting showings.

The Hunter 36 is a stylish midsize cruiser with maximum space and the always impeccable Hunter amenities. It features a large cockpit with great visibility from every point of sail, an incredibly roomy salon, the master stateroom includes a queen-size bed with inner spring mattress and the forward cabin is spacious and bright. In short the Hunter 36 is a magnificent yacht that sails like a dream, features state of the art equipment and doesn’t compromise on comfort.

The new Salona 35 will make her Australian debut at the show. She is a remarkable cruiser racer yacht with comfort and loads of performance. Her modern and clean deck lines are the continuation of the new distinctive style of Salona.

The cockpit is free of obstacles with an easily convertible open transom, twin carbon wheels and top quality equipment such as Harken and Nexus instruments. Salona yachts are strong with stainless steel frame that takes the loads from the keel and shrouds and spreads them securely to a wide area of the hull. The Salona 35 is a remarkable looking yacht with numerous smart design details.



CEO of U.S. Yachts, Matt Hayes, is excited to be showing the Hunter 36 along with the new Salona 35 at the Pittwater Boat Show.

'The Pittwater Boat Show is a great opportunity to showcase the prestigious Hunter 36 and the new Salona 35 in all their glory. When visitors step onboard and gain a true feeling of the high quality of the installations and finishes, they really will want to look no further.' Mr Hayes said.
