BOAT SHOWS - Big crowds expected at Sunshine Coast Marine Festival

Brokerage Multihull Solutions expects big crowds for its Open Weekend at the inaugural Sunshine Coast Marine Festival from November 19 to 20.

Incorporating the Sunshine Coast Sailing Expo, organisers promise the event will be a spectacular weekend showcasing a comprehensive range of multihulls and other sail and power craft.

Located at the Mooloolaba Marina and Yacht Club, the festival is the result of public and industry demand for a quality Sunshine Coast event that caters for the strong regional interest in boating and water-based recreation.

For the duration of the event Multihull Solutions will open its office, based at the Mooloolaba Marina, to visitors who are interested in new or pre-owned multihulls from the world’s leading brands.

The company will be exhibiting the Summerland 40 and Cumberland 46 Trawler power catamarans, the Mahe 36 and Lipari 41 sailing catamarans by Fountaine Pajot, as well as a range of quality pre-owned brokerage multihulls.

Serving refreshments from its office, the entire Multihull Solutions team will be available to discuss all multihull-related matters, including sales (new and pre-owned), charter investment programs, buying offshore and more.

Multihull Solutions’ Mark Elkington said the festival will be an exciting opportunity for Sunshine Coast residents and visitors to see a huge range of multihulls and other watercraft in one location.

“The Sunshine Coast is a mecca for boating and many exclusive representatives of the world’s top products are located right here on the coast,” said Elkington.

“The inaugural Sunshine Coast Marine Festival brings more than 25 brands of boat together in one place to give visitors a chance to see the world of choice they have right on their doorstep.

“Of course, with our comprehensive range of new and pre-owned multihulls for sale in Mooloolaba Marina, Multihull Solutions offers a veritable year-round boat show,” he said.

As well as multihulls, the festival will showcase a broad range of offshore fishing boats, tinnies, fibreglass boats, engines, PWCs, marine electronics, accessories and more.

Experts from the boating and fishing industries will be giving talks and demonstrations throughout the weekend, and children will be entertained with a host of activities. Entry to the Sunshine Coast Marine Festival costs $5 for an adult, while children under 14 are admitted free.
