Sail-World.com : Melbourne International Boat & Lifestyle Festival to shine!

Melbourne International Boat & Lifestyle Festival to shine!

'Docklands - the venue for the MIBLF 2011.'    Fiona Harper

The Melbourne International Boat & Lifestyle Festival will offer something for everybody when it runs in Melbourne at Waterfront City, Docklands, 4-6 February 2011.

This event is one of Melbourne’s premier events held at Docklands to showcase not only the surrounding precinct and restaurants but also the yachts on display along with many other power boats and marine related exhibitor products.

This year is no exception with lots to see and do. Go kayaking, see the fishing competition weigh-in; view the magnificent vessels on display and check out the latest safety information. The Westpac rescue helicopter is scheduled to make an appearance with a much adored celebrity . . .

The event will showcase the latest in boats and associated products with loads of boats on water in the marina. The new Hanse 445, new Riveria 5000 range, Beneteau Oceanis 58, Caribbean 35 MK III to name a few, while on the promenade view the latest trailerable fishing and ski boats from many of Melbourne’s best dealers and of course check out the Sealegs land and sea amphibious marine craft and the new Misty Harbour powered pontoons.

The festival includes the BIA Bream Fishing Classic- a catch & release and weigh in competition, a new stage dedicated to all things fishing with the Yamaha Supertank on Show. Food, wine and music are featured at the 2011 MIBLF for all the family.

Melbourne City Council and Marine Safety Victoria are proud long term sponsors of this annual event now in its 15th Year. Other supporters are Bolle’, Parks Victoria, Trailer Boat, Trader Tag, Boatsonsale.com.au, BoatClub, Waterfront City, New Quay, 3AW and brought to you by Boating Industry Association of Victoria.
