All aboard bid­ding for retro boat

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CAN­NON­VALE Marine’s in­house boat show re­turns this year to help celebrate 70 years of Quin­trex boats with a char­i­ta­ble twist.

With Proser­pine Whit­sun­day Ju­nior Rugby League mem­bers man­ning the bar­be­cue, the boat show will be a fun day with a large dis­play of Quin­trex boats and live en­ter­tain­ment.

As well as giv­ing away a Quin­trex dinghy pack­age val­ued at over $12,000, Can­non­vale Marine will be auc­tion­ing another Quin­trex dinghy pack­age with pro­ceeds be­ing do­nated back to the com­mu­nity.

With the help of Kevin Smith, from TK's Body Re­pairs, and Paul Dray, from En­vi­rob­last Whit­sun­day, the dinghy has been re­ju­ve­nated and painted in retro colours.

The Quin­trex 3.5 me­tre, deep V, flared bow dinghy is pow­ered with a new 15hp Vor­tex out­board. The pack­age, with a value of $5860, will be fully reg­is­tered on a new Quin­trex gal­vanised trailer.

Can­non­vale Marine is ask­ing for fund­ing sub­mis­sions from in­ter­ested sport­ing clubs and other not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The money raised from the auc­tion will be di­vided and do­nated to three clubs or or­gan­i­sa­tions cho­sen by a small panel of com­mu­nity mem­bers.

Sub­mis­sions can be sent to sales@can­non­va­le­ma­

The boat show will be held at Can­non­vale Marine at 14 McIn­tosh Drive on Satur­day, July 11 from 10am–4pm.

Quin­trex rep­re­sen­ta­tives will also be there on the day to ad­dress any in­quiries.
