Delegates attending the Marine 15 international marine conference and trade exhibition on the Gold Coast during May will also enjoy a number of tours showcasing the local marine industry.
Several Gold Coast manufacturers will display products at Marine 15, including Superior Jetties with a world-launch of its Waterscape furniture and the Telwater Quintrex brand with two new models on display, plus a further 55 exhibitors at the MarineX@Marine 15 exhibition.
BIAA general manager Nik Parker said: "Marine 15 is very pleased to be able to showcase the Gold Coast and is equally pleased that the Council of the City of Gold Coast will join Marine 15 in promotion of the local marine industry."
A yard tour for delegates will visit the Coomera Marine Precinct on Wednesday May 6, providing valuable insights into world-class boat design, construction and maintenance, at Australia’s leading marine precinct.
First port of call is the Telwater factory, the largest boat manufacturer in the southern hemisphere and home of Quintrex, Stacer, Savage and Yellowfin brands.
The Telwater tour will present the construction process to end product, including plasma cutting; pressing and welding of marine grade aluminium; custom designed paint booths; through to the fit-out stage.
Hosting the second tour will be iconic Australian luxury yacht builder Riviera, building boats from 36-75ft length across four lines.
This behind the scenes tour takes delegates from lamination and engineering through to final fit-out, providing an insight into the pride and passion for perfection behind every new Riviera.
