Fraser yacht sales and a strong fleet of the Jeanneau and Azumit power and sailboats were on display. Ian Fraser introduced us to Jenny Armstrong their service manager.

Robb Butler of Fleming yachts, Canada introduced us to Brian Coverly the owner of Delta Marine Services. Delta sells and services Fleming Boats at their Sydney location. Next to the two Fleming Boats at the show was a 26 foot Express Cruiser designed by Gregory Marshall. Liquid Metal built the all aluminum boat and Delta did the finishing.
