MarineBusiness-World Pavilion, Asia superyacht focus, Fitzroy's Zefira

Our lateness this week is due to an utterly overwhelming number of interesting news stories, internationally and locally.

Musto is holding a massive warehouse sale - with some apparel up to 80% off! This must-not-miss clearance will be held Friday May 13th from 9am to 4pm, Saturday May 14th 9am to 4pm and Sunday May 15th, 10am until 3pm at Musto's Brookvale HQ, 28B Roger Street. There will be a Sausage Sizzle as well to raise funds for Sailability.

In the lead up to Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, we feature some of the brands, dealers and distributors who will be on show - our friends at DeckHardware who have a swag of new products including Allen, JDC Instruments, PROtect Tape, Unimer and Walder; BarzOptics is looking forward to equipping the SCIBS team with their polarised lenses for the duration of the show, and launching its new Badu range, with photochromatic polarised lenses, and there are a stack of other launches and unveilings.

Every day we will be running updates on exhibitors and events within this year's show, and a special piece of news of our own concerning the launch of a new site to the TetraMedia group and an Australian first in terms of data collected from show-goers at this year's event.

What we can reveal now is our sponsorship of the main Pavilion, the mega Pavilion A - which is going to impress and inspire with its prominent branding as well as sheer size. Just wait til you clap eyes on it!

Meantime, plenty of new products, high tech gear and industry innovations.

Have a great week and keep in touch with your own opinions and news.
