Great Response @ Gold Coast Expo!

The Schionning Team would like to extend a big Thank You to all of the interested parties that came to see us - some travelling great distances! The response at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo was fantastic, with great interest in both design and production vessels. The amount of solid interest seems to indicate a surge of confidence back into the multihull market which is very refreshing and means some exciting projects ahead. 

The G-Force 1800 'KATO' was on display, and is also for sale - an absolutely stunning vessel that impressed every single person that stepped aboard. A massive thank you to the owners of the vessel, we couldn't have done it without them. 

Things are now full steam ahead, so keep your eyes peeled for some new and exciting projects in the coming months.

G-Force SSS Taking Shape at Cure Composites

The newest G-Force design, the G-Force 1800 SSS, is taking shape in the capable hands of Cure Composites located on the Sunshine Coast. The lightweight design is going to be a force to be reckoned with and all efforts have been taken to reduce the end weight and optimize her for speed. The shell was recently weighed and was amazingly light, with a predicted displacement lighter than sister G-Force 1800 'KATO'. 

More information on the SSS design is coming soon, so check back regularly.

Brand New Arrow 1360 Announced

Following the outstanding success of the Arrow 1200, we're pleased to announce a bigger sister - the brand new Arrow 1360! Many of you loved the Arrow concept of need before greed, and a quick build guaranteed with the 100% flat panel construction but with a little more room for extended cruising. Well wait no longer! Featuring the same sharp stealth styling, and with room to be as extravagent or as lean as you wish, the Arrow 1360 is going to be very popular. 

For more information, check out the Arrow 1360 design page here or contact the office for kit pricing and freight options. Detailed design study plans are coming very soon!
