The team at Clipper Motoryachts Australia is delighted by the response to the weekend’s Marine Expo at the Gold Coast marine precinct.
Managing Director Brett Thurley said: “It was a great atmosphere throughout the weekend. A great relaxed and family environment added to the fact it was a selling show and people were making commitments to buy. We were extremely pleased with our sales for the show and feel there is more to come in the following weeks.
“The result confirms that we believe this should become an annual event.”
Clipper displayed four boats – ranging from a Heritage 36 to the flagship Cordova 60 – at its own dock on the marina as well as a range of tenders on the hard stand.
“This was the largest display of Clipper motoryachts we have achieved in Australia,” said Thurley.
Clipper Motoryachts Australia head office is at the water’s edge in the heart of the Marine Expo at the Gold Coast City Marina and Thurley was one of the founding organisers of the Expo.
“The success of this event vindicates our faith in the original idea that Ryan Leigh-Smith approached us with to be a founding sponsor and organiser of the Expo,” he said. “Gold Coast boating enthusiasts have demonstrated that a show at this time of year, with great warm weather, is exactly what they want.”
Clipper also hosted a busy owner and guest hospitality marquee throughout the weekend, offering food and refreshments.
