Fishing & Boating Expo this month

VICTORIA’S Fishing and Boating Expo is set down for August 24-26 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

The event will see 60 exhibitors pack the 6000sqm pavilion at the venue with their latest boats, tinnies, PWCs and the best in gear and gadgets.

At the Expo, Boats & More will take wraps off the new Haines Hunter Offshore 560 (pictured) powered by a 150hp Mercury outboard engine. The boat is perfect for both serious fishing duty as well as fun family boating days. It features a long-range 200L fuel tank and can be towed behind most family-sized sedans, without the need for a breakaway braking system.

Exhibitor, Regal Marine will feature a range of the popular and locally-crafted TABS plate aluminium boats at the Expo. There are plenty of show specials to be found but the 430 Cruise Runaboat, kitted with an EFI Mercury four-stroke engine, safety gear and rego will be one of the show’s most competitive offerings.

Showgoers debating whether to make their next purchase a boat or caravan are sure to show plenty of interest in Drifta pontoon boat, described as the “caravan on water”. It has all the creature comforts including air conditioning, front and rear sundecks and toilet and shower, and at 22 feet long and a manageable 8 feet wide, is simple to hook up and tow on the road.

Drifta combines the best of both worlds, and showgoers can own the unique craft for around $85,000.

Melbourne Sea-Doo will showcase a range of its class-leading PWCs for those considering other options for taking to the water. If it’s a performance PWC they’re after, then visitors will be drawn to the new RXP-X. PWCs are also becoming more popular for those who only need a small craft to take out when they go fishing.

For options and variety, there is no greater showroom than the Fishing and Boating Expo, on the week prior to Father’s Day.

The event is co-located with the expansive National 4×4 & Outdoors Show, with entry to both included as part of the affordable admission prices.
