Tahiti superyacht sessions, Korea growing, Marine15 to build on succes

After the flurry of news from Sanctuary Cove last week, it's back to near normal with even coverage of the local and global marine industry, including announcement of IBEX registrations now open, and an initiative from our friends at Superyacht Australia - information sessions in Tahiti for superyacht owners and Captains interested in finding out more about cruising Australian waters, scheduled for Friday 28 June.

Australia's key regional superyacht clusters will be present including Superyacht Great Barrier Reef, Marine WA, NSW Superyacht Industry Association and Superyachts Queensland. Superyacht Australia CEO MaryAnne Edwards said the event would be he ideal opportunity to show that along with idyllic cruising grounds, Australian marine businesses can deliver quality work, to budget and deadlines. 'We have the expertise, capability and reputation for delivering to the owners and captains requirements.'

The Korea International Boat Show in early June was packed with marine-leisure exhibitors, as well as other recreational pursuits like diving, camping and caravanning.

AND, the announcement that we can again anticipate a strong turnout for Marine15, thanks to the success of Marine13, the inaugural event hosted in Sydney. Western Australia and Queensland are the leading contenders to host the next multi-stream international boating industry conference and trade exhibition in 2015.

Dates and location for Marine15 will be revealed at the end of August.

There's an assortment of new products, opportunities and events coming up and plenty more on the horizon, so pop back frequently.

Pleasant boating!
