Australian company, U.S. Yachts, will have six yachts on show at the 2012 Sydney International Boat Show, on in August at Darling Harbour.
Prospective yacht owners will be able to see four Hunter yachts – two of them making their Australian debut – and two Salona Yachts, with the 38 making its first appearance in Australia.
The Hunter e33 will make her debut at the Show, as will the stunning 50AC. The 50 is an absolute dream with its luxurious interior boasting caramel leather, teak, two flat screen TVs, beds with inner spring mattresses and an excellent galley. Visitors will also be able to check out the e36 and the 45DS – both very popular Hunter models.
US Yachts is the new Australian distributor for Salona Yachts, a range of performance cruising yachts from 35 – 60. The yachts are made by AD Boats in Split, on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast. AD Boats is part of the Prevent Group, a German multinational company with over 12,000 employees, with more than 35 production facilities worldwide and a major global supplier to the car industry, in particular Porsche, Audi and Volkswagen.
Salona Yachts are carefully designed for use as family cruisers as well as for serious offshore or international racing, and excel in heavy weather.
The Salona 38 will be making its Australian debut at the Sydney International Boat Show, and we will also showcase the Salona 44. CEO of US Yachts, Matt Hayes, tested the 38 and the 44 when in Croatia recently, and said that the performance of the yachts greatly exceeded his expectations.
Matt Hayes is looking forward to showing off the Hunter yachts, which compare very favourably to other European brands. “It’s always rewarding to see how people react to seeing the Hunter yachts up close for the first time. The design of the yachts, the brilliant interiors and the value for money when compared to the European brands puts Hunter to the forefront for many potential yacht owners, whether they are looking for day cruisers or to live aboard,” Mr Hayes said.
“We also look forward to showcasing the Salona yachts in what is our first show as the Australian distributors. Salona is perfect for those who like to race but do not want to give up all their creature comforts. They are performance racing yachts, but their interiors also lend themselves to cruising. The yachts would be perfect for the Hamilton Island Race Week, Saturday club racing and even the Sydney to Hobart.”
