Members of the marine industry in Australia will be prominent at this year's Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Australia’s leading internationally focused industry organizations, Australian Marine Export Group and Superyacht Australia, joined forces to showcase Australian products and promote Australia as an idyllic cruising destination.
Australia-based Aqualuma, a manufacturer of marine lights and the current Australian Exporter of the Year, continues to be a major sponsor for the 2011 show.
“Australian manufacturers and boatbuilders are major players in the international market,” Australian Marine Export Group chief executive MaryAnne Edwards says. “They have developed an excellent reputation in the United States and are confident of success at Fort Lauderdale, coming on the back of an already successful show in Monaco.”
Veem Engineering Group will be showcasing its new Veem Ultraskew propeller at the show. Muir Winches, a manufacturer of windlasses and anchor systems for the superyacht sector, and Hydrive Engineering, the largest manufacturer and exporter of hydraulic boat steering gear in the Southern Hemisphere, also will exhibit at the show.
This year’s show runs from Oct. 27-31.
