The RNA Showgrounds in sunny Brisbane played host to 53rd annual Brisbane International Boat show to a stellar audience of boating enthusiasts and mariners alike. Since 1961 the Brisbane Boat Show has been showcasing and promoting the benefits of a marine based lifestyle to the people of Queensland and this year is no exception, with the latest the trailer boat market has to offer on display in the newly renovated facilities.

FUSION was right at home with the other international heavy weights in attendance, making the Brisbane show a key event for marine dealerships and products suppliers in South East Queensland.

FUSION’s very own entertainment integration protocol known as FUSION-Link which has been adopted by all the major marine electronics manufacturers, has now become the industry standard for entertainment integration and was on display for all to experience at the event. Chris Soeters, General Manager of Australia says “With FUSION-Link you can integrate and control your entire vessels electronics and entertainment from a single display, not only does this simplify life for the boater, but it frees up room from the helm if needed. FUSION is the only option when you need this level of integration”.

With the award winning range of FUSION marine entertainment on display, customers were able to try out the latest Android/Windows MTP functionality and Bluetooth streaming options now available. “Whether you’re using an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or Nokia Lumia 920, the FUSION 700 and 205 series will manage and playback your favourite tracks for an unbeatable audio experience” – says Chris Soeters.

Multiple models from more than 50 different boat brands were displayed including many fibreglass, pressed aluminium and alloy plate boats which were seen for the first time during the show, these included:

The Yellowfin 6400 Synergy Centre Console, Honda’s new range of inflatable tenders ranging from two to three metres and which have three different floor versions, the Bar Crusher 615C featuring the second-generation hull and many more.

The Brisbane Boat Show is the perfect place to search for, compare and choose your new boat, personal watercraft or boat motor, but when it comes to marine entertainment there is no comparison.

If you feel like a flight or swim across the ditch, FUSION will be showcasing at the Auckland on the water boat show from the 26th to the 29th of September. See you there.
