Boat Show Success for ABS in Melbourne

With huge crowd numbers at the Melbourne Boat Show, ABS have been super busy following up leads and preparing sold boats for delivery to their new homes.  ‘We sold or recorded substantial interest in every brand on our display’. Said Scott O’Hare ABS principle.  The all-new Chaparral 250 OSx outboard sold on debut along with the first gleaming white Honda 250 iST powering it.   A Chaparral 247 SSX also sold, along with Polycraft including a new 5.99 Cuddy.  Stejcraft Boats, particularly the redesigned 610 Monaco and 580 Islander were strong with several test drives booked in and our Robalo R247 crossover fishing machine has serious interest.  ‘We were surprised with the number of Honda re-power sales, taking several orders across the horsepower range’, said Mr O’Hare.   Overall, the 2023 Melbourne Boat Show experienced a huge increase in exhibitor numbers which translated to over 40,000 visitors, many of them new to boating.  ABS are based on the waterfront in Williamstown, so are offering sea trials for all of the boats on display. They are a one stop shop with all marine services, including new and used boats for sale, Honda outboards storage & workshop, but most importantly they offer professional friendly advice on all things boating.
