trade a boat - - FEATURE | SCIBS PREVIEW -

Yamaha Mo­tor Aus­tralia will be dis­play­ing the all-new V8 XTO 425 horse­power out­board at the 2019 show. At­ten­dees will be able to get up close and per­sonal to view the in­ner work­ings of this mas­sive and tech­nol­ogy-driven pow­er­house.

This next gen­er­a­tion en­gine sees a gi­ant leap in out­board en­gine design and devel­op­ment, with the in­tro­duc­tion of the in­dus­try's first fully in­te­grated elec­tric steer­ing sys­tem and first di­rect-in­jec­tion four-stroke out­board, de­liv­er­ing the high­est com­pres­sion ra­tio of any out­board.

Com­ple­ment­ing this en­gine, Yamaha will also be dis­play­ing their Helm Mas­ter joy­stick dock­ing and po­si­tion­ing sys­tem, which creates a truly ef­fort­less boat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Visit the Yamaha dis­play at the Sports, Leisure and Fish­ing precinct, lo­cated right next to the Su­per­tank fish tank dis­play.

World lead­ers in sail and small shaft­drive engines Nanni Diesel will fo­cus on its small en­gine range desined for sail and small dis­place­ment re­pow­ers at this years' show.

Along­side the small en­gine range will be gen­er­a­tors and the new John Deere based marine engines. Based on in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial engines, the John Deere based range is de­signed for the re­power mar­ket and new small-to-mid-sized power ves­sels with sim­plic­tiy a key design fac­tor. The fa­mous blue engines will be sup­ported by the knowl­edge­able team from the Collins Marine group near the shows' en­trance – stop in for a chat with the gang.

Volvo Penta might just have the answer to tak­ing your project boat up to a high-per­form­ing ma­chine that will be the envy of all. At SCIBS 2019, Volvo Penta – through its Queens­land­based dis­trib­u­tor Seamech – is of­fer­ing a free ex­tended war­ranty for up to five years on the en­tire Aqua­matic Petrol en­gine range with stern­drive. These engines will get you up on the plane quick smart, yet of­fer low emis­sions, great fuel econ­omy and ex­cep­tional re­spon­sive han­dling.

But don’t just take their word for it. The Na­tional Marine Man­u­fac­tur­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (NMMA) in the US has awarded the Cus­tomer Sat­is­fac­tion In­dex award to Volvo Penta for this range of engines for 15 years in a row. Pack­ages start from $18,293. Through­out SCIBS, mem­bers of Seamech’s team will be on stand PR10 to dis­cuss the best en­gine pack­age for your boat and as they are the 2018 Volvo Penta Ocea­nia Busi­ness Part­ner of the Year, we think they might just know what they are talk­ing about.

If it’s an out­board you’re chasing, then visit one of the many Suzuki Marine dealer stands. Suzuki’s range of four-stroke out­boards are known for their fuel ef­fi­ciency, value and per­for­mance thanks to such in­no­va­tions as Lean Burn, main­te­nance-free tim­ing chains and off­set drive­shaft. Visit one of our three dealer stands to find out why Suzuki is the ul­ti­mate out­board mo­tor – Surf Coast Marine, Aus­tralian Marine Cen­tre or La­guna Boat­ing Cen­tre.

Sure to draw a crowd will be the lat­est launches from Suzuki in the DF350A, a high-per­for­mance V6 and the DF175A and DF150A in-line four­cylin­der sis­ters. With Suzuki’s fa­mous Lean Burn tech­nol­ogy these out­boards are fuel efficient but pack plenty of grunt thanks to high gear­box ra­tios driv­ing big pro­pel­lers.
