Sealegs Enjoys Sucessful Start To Boat Show

Sealegs Enjoys Sucessful Start To 2006 At London Boat Show

Auckland, 18 January 2006: Listed marine company, Sealegs Corporation Limited (NZX:SLG), has started 2006 on a high note with a number of confirmed sales resulting from last week’s London Boat Show.

According to CEO David Mckee Wright, Sealegs UK reseller Amphibious UK Ltd reported a number of strong leads from the 130,000 people who attended the January 5–15 show, resulting in five orders for Sealegs rigid inflatable boats (RIBs).

During the show Sealegs featured on an ITV boating programme, which has a viewing audience of about 1.5 million people. “Our reseller, Nick Fox, tells me that feedback exceeded their expectations and they expect further orders to follow in months to come,” says Mr Mckee Wright.

“He says that Sealegs is receiving a fantastic response from the UK market. Every show they attend gives the product more credibility and seeds future sales. It is still the middle of winter in Europe and Nick is confident sales this summer should easily double those of last year.”

“We’re not surprised by this good result as it reflects the response we’ve had from other attendances at international boat shows,” says Mr McKee Wright. “Sealegs has now established itself as the world’s most successful amphibious boat manufacturer and it can look forward to a successful year.”

Sealegs is exhibiting at the Melbourne Summer boat show on 10th to 12th of February 2006.
