Respected South African boat-builder Mallards Marine is the latest international brand to climb aboard for the biggest-ever Gold Coast International Marine Expo in May and will stage the exclusive Australian Premiere of the new Sundowner XIX bow-rider.
Mallards joins a growing list of international and Australian brands and businesses who have selected the award-winning Expo for their World and Australian Premieres.
Brad Van der Linde from Mallards Australia says the 19ft Sundowner XIX from the marque’s growing stable of hand-crafted multipurpose ski and fishing boats ticks all the boxes in the family fun stakes.
“With it’s technically advanced hull design and no-timber construction, the Sundowner XIX is one of the lightest boats in its class, which allows the boat to perform extremely well in all conditions,” he said.
“Nine people can comfortably enjoy a day on the water in a craft designed to thrill both the beginner and the hardcore experienced water skier and wake-boarder.
“But it’s at the end of a fun-filled day on the water when this model really comes into her own, with enough space and seating for a Sundowner XIX party.”
Expo Event & Marketing Manager Emma Milne said the Mallards Marine slogan – “Tried, Tested and Trusted” – fully encompasses the pride with which Mallards boats are manufactured.
“We are very proud to welcome Mallards Australia on our growing list of first-time Expo visitors, and to the growing list of exhibitors launching new boats, products and services at the Expo in 2016,” she said.
“Our massive marine showcase will include a vast array of over 500 yachts and boats both on the water and on land – everything from luxury motor and sailing yachts to lightweight tenders and jet skis, kayaks and lightweight tenders,” she said.
“If you are in the market for your next boat, or even if you are new to boating, you’ll find something to get you on the water having fun at the Expo.”
