Moreton Bay Afloat at the Sanctuary Cove 2018 Boat Show!

We were thrilled to meet so many people and talk about our new boating holidays on Moreton Bay at this years boat show!

Bazza and Kerry took Moreton Magic, our 42’ 2017 Seawind 1260 Catamaran down there a few days in advance as Multihull central and Seawind Catamarans buffed and polished her to show on their docks while we had a booth in the main pavillon.

The seas were flat and it was wonderful to get away from the base after the chaos of getting everything built and ready for the show for an overnight trip of silence on the bay.

We had been feeling like we bit off a bit more then we could chew the last couple weeks leading up to the show with building our own display and doing a LOT of postcards and marketing material. That had us running and running quicker the closer we got but it all came together flawlessly. Bazza built our display, we went with a nautical look mimicking awnings tied onto yachts with the banners. Kerry did the marketing banners.

The boat came into its small allotted slot without taking out any other boats (always a good thing), our display fit just fine and we had virtually no rain For the weekend!

You always feel a bit like a bump on a log until you get into the swing of things at the show and with a new company offering catamaran hire and drive on Moreton Bay we eagerly listened to each piece of advice that was offered! I also picked the brains of every other yacht operator company in Australia.

One of the main things we learnt is that locals were thrilled to learn that they could rent a brand new sailing catamaran here on Moreton Bay in their back yard, but wanted the option to take it several times a year for a weekend or few days rather then for a week.

I have taken all your suggestions and made a few changes in our pricing strategy that you can see here

If you are looking at buying a Seawind Catamaran a few years down the road, this is a great option to learn about your planned new boat long before you get it and Bazza at our base is happy to give you pointers with his background of marine engineering.

Speaking of our base, we are coming to the end of a half a million dollar upgrade and plan on an open house for our boats and marina on Sunday June 10th! RSVP is necessary for food purposes. Call Kerry on
