Floating into the Future – Massey Marine Design at the Boat and Fishing Show

Exciting and innovative marine craft from the Massey University College of Creative Arts will offer a glimpse into the future for visitors to the Boat and Fishing Show at Mystery Creek 11 – 13 August.

Four personal water craft from the fourth annual Yamaha Design Challenge will be a part of the show, in a display of ingenuity and imagination that will dazzle crowds. While the aim of each craft is the same, to carry a single passenger through a series of straight line and circuit races at speed, the four boats look completely different from each other an anything else on the market.

Overall winner Spypedo, a wave-piercing displacement catamaran takes a minimalist approach at just 69kg including the 8hp Yamaha outboard. Xplora and CSX also offer a multihull design and Chopper, will be popular with visitors with a design based on a waterbourne chopper-style motorcycle and an unmissable orange paintjob.

The Boat and Fishing Show will splash down at Mystery Creek Events Centre, South of Hamilton from 11 – 13 August 2006. See the best marine and outdoors products from 9.30am to 8.00pm on Friday and 9.30am to 5.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.

For further information on exhibits or activities or to be a part of this exciting event, contact Jayshree Dayal at the MIA on 0800 600 242 or Nicole Foster at Mystery Creek Events Centre on 07 843 4497.
