GOLD COAST MARINE EXPO EXHIBITORS

Chinese multihull luxury boat manufacturer Hudson yachts joins the list of brands premiering yachts at 2015 Gold Coast International Marine Expo, bringing the new Hudson HH55 and Judson HH66 from the same yard that produces the speedy and iconic Gunboat sailing catamarans.

Presented by Sydney-based Just Multihulls at The Boat Works site (southern end of the Gold Coast Marine Precinct) the stylish HH55 (shown here) will join GCIME’s Super 60s showcase, both on the hardstand alongside Hudson’s Airplay 30 Sport Hybrid trimaran.

David Renouf from Just Multihulls said the new cats were an extraordinary blend of brains and beauty like no other. "HH catamarans are comfortable for cruising with a first class interior and finish, but all models are able to "kick it up a notch" with speed when needed. They are definitely the next generation of cruising multihulls," said Renouf.

"The new Super Cat 66 even sports the new-generation curved-C daggerboards as well as  100 per cent carbon construction, making it light and strong for superior safety."

These eye-catching catamarans will join an enormous collection of trailerable boats, also on the hardstand for easy viewing.

GCIME event and marketing manager Emma Milne said while there was always plenty of interest in the larger luxury yachts at Expo, the range of smaller vessels proved equally popular. "Most people get their first taste of the joys and rewards of boating life aboard a trailerboat and many actually prefer the versatility of a boat that you can take with you anywhere," she said. "Many larger yacht owners also require tenders, or own specialty fishing boats, so it’s very valuable to have this diversity of boats on display all in the one location."
The Expo has announced a "Come By Boat" service for visitors, with water transfers from a designated anchorage just north of the Gold Coast Marine Precinct at Coomera for a nominal $2 per trip donation that goes directly to supporting Volunteer Marine Rescue Jacobs Well.
