With the cancellation of Hutchwilco New Zealand Boats Show, which should have been on last week, Grady-White’s NZ dealer has taken the bold step of organising their own boat show.
Stuart Arnold, director of Grady-White New Zealand will be running an exclusive boat show from their base at the Tairua Marina over the weekend of 8th-9th August 2020. What started as a promo just for the Grady-White brand seems to have gained momentum in the show starved industry.
“As the Hutchwilco Boat Show was cancelled until next year where we were hoping to preview the latest 2020 model boats from Grady-White, we are now having our own show where we can still do that and more”, says Stuart.
Grady-White will have on show the new 2020 model Grady-White 370 Express, 330 Express and Marlin 300, these boats fully equipped with the complete Yamaha Helm Master control system and a full electronics suite from ‘SIMRAD’ electronics.
They will also have another 8-9 model Grady-White models on display and boats doing sea trials throughout the show. These will include a Grady-White 370 Express, 330 Express, 228 Seafarer Walk Around, 208 Adventure Walk Around, Fisherman 236 Center Console and more.
However, the show will not just be about Grady-White, you can also expect to see boats from, Profile, Southern, Surtees, Brig, and Sealegs. Plus there will also be some great stands from Yamaha NZ, withn their outboards, Waverunner Jetski’s and gear, electronics from Simrad and Garmin, plus Balex and Dockpro. The latest Shimano Tackle & Fishing and diving enthusiasts will have plenty to check out with fishing tackle and dive gear displays along with some great Gary Longley artwork. A full list of exhibitors will be released in July.
There will also be prize draws and drinks, beers and food available in the new Tairua and Pauanui Fishing Club in the main Tairua Marina building, and some great forums and talks by guest speakers, so please make a date and come along. It is totally free show with no entry fee.
