Summer 2010 is going great guns for local aluminium boat builders AMF Boats. Two AMF boats a 580 Vee Berth Cabin and AMF 660 Vee Berth Cabin were loaded on a Shades Trucking deck and trailer (pictured) today destined for Melbourne.
These new boats will be shipped via a Roll On Roll Off service arriving in Melbourne start of January. AMF Boats signed on Russell Cairns Marine in Warrnambool Victoria as a dealer for the AMF recreational range of boats built in Wanganui, this also gives the dealer access to wide range of high end Commercial craft built by AMF Boats, from Coastguard Rescue RIB’s to Landing craft. AMF Boats also have a dealer Fivestar Marine in Fremantle Western Australia which has done very well with the AMF product.
“Sales in recent months have gone through the roof and all of our main stock lines have cleared. Leads that we have spent the last two years working on have come to fruition creating a flurry of work in our Taupo Quay, Wanganui and Hewletts Road Mt Maunganui Yards. We have boats heading all over the country at the moment, looks like quite a few kiwi blokes will have big smiles on their faces this Christmas! And we should put a few more smiles on Aussies faces too!” Said Wanganui manager Bevan Collings
Mr Collings said “We have very exciting opportunities in both domestic and export markets arising for next year and remain confident about what we can achieve for 2011”.
