Gold Coast International Marine Expo 2015

The Schionning Team are excited to announce our participation in the 2015 Gold Coast International Marine Expo aboard the G-Force 1800 'KATO', as a part of the Super 60s on-water multihull exhibit. This event should provide customers a side-by-side comparison of the world's most popular and luxurious cruising and performance multihulls. The opportunity to showcase our largest G-Force design is extremely exciting, and KATO has not been on display before - having only hit the water in 2014. Find us at Stand #156! 

Take a closer look at the Expo's attractions and exhibitors here, as well as pre-purchase your tickets online. With the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show running at the same time, there has never been a better time to experience every facet of the Australian and International marine industries.

Waterline 'KAVALA' Wins Multihull Championships

A big congratulations to skipper Dave Ruffin and the crew aboard Waterline "KAVALA" who took out first place in the Cruising Division of the 2015 Australian Multihull Championships held in Geelong recently! The competition was fierce but KAVALA managed to dominate her division and leave the competition in her wake in some windy conditions, sometimes flying a hull (as you can see!). 

You can view the results table in more detail here.

Congratulations to skipper and crew, a fantastic result!
