Steve Heese, the Chris Craft President (pictured with Steve and I) is
joining us on the Marina so do stop by and say g'day! His passion is
absolutely infectious and he will always be my biggest inspiration!
With 2 stands at the Show, we're excited to have our Australian Launches
for the Regal 2100 Surf Edition and Regal 2000ESX on display at Hall 5,
Stand 501, which promises to be an absolute game changer for
watersports enthusiasts and family cruisers alike.

our new model launches are unbeatable; including the Regal 2500 RX,
Regal 2800, Chris Craft 36 Corsair Hardtop and the Absolute 52 Fly!

made huge waves since her arrival to Rose Bay/Point Piper Marina.
Also on display are our award winning favourites, being the Chris Craft
32 Launch, 28 Corsair, 25 Launch and 23 Catalina and from Regal Boats,
we have the 35 Sport Coupe and 46 Sport Coupe.
you'd love to be the proud owner of a luxury Premier boat but can't
quite stretch to the price, don't forget we have a selective range of
boats available via syndication, which could see you own a share (for
example) in a 52 footer for the price of a 28 foot sport boat. What a
compelling option indeed! Our boats are incomparable to ranges offered
in any other syndication/boat share alternatives!
As we have so many boats on display, I've chosen a few of my absolute
favourites! If you would like to receive any information on any of the
boats, feel free to email me or I look forward to seeing you at the Boat
From Lee, Steve and the Premier Team.
CHRIS CRAFT 36 CORSAIR HARDTOP- Australian Launch!
I can barely contain my excitement as I introduce you to the all new Chris Craft Corsair 36 Hardtop! This
Australian first has been on the most eagerly awaited, not just from us
at Premier, but from so many of you asking me when we'd be launching
this exceptional model in Australia! Finally the wait is over and yes,
it's been well worth the wait!
The Corsair 36 is the mother ship in the range and is an absolute
headturner! For anyone wishing to have the best day boat possible but
with the capacity to take her away for week long adventures, she is the
only choice! Her performance and handling is second to none and exactly
like her younger sisters in the range.
Chris Craft, established in 1874, is the most iconic boat brand built in
the world and the first ever motor boat built in the world. She's
appeared in more Hollywood Blockbusters than any other boat brand AND
they've never paid for product placement, which is a testament to how
brilliant these boats are. One drive on a Chris Craft and you will know
first hand, why they're renowned as the James Bond of Boats.
Absolute 52 Fly- Australian Launch
This magnificent Absolute 52 Fly
is making her exciting debut at the Show and you will kick yourself if
you don't jump aboard to see what all the fuss is about! An absolute
world-leading flybridge and recently launched in Europe, this is one
boat that has no competitors.
You will love the IPS engines as they're the most technologically
advanced propulsion systems available world-wide, which gives you more
space, is quieter in motion, gives better performance and 30% better
fuel economy. Forget the antiquated options available on most other
brands on the market. All good boaties in the know are aware that IPS is
the only system of choice!
The visibility of an Absolute Yacht is far superior to any other big
boat we've seen. This also equates to the natural light and airy nature
of the Absolute.
The euro chic styling both inside and out promises to excite even the most discerning owner.
This boat is available to forward order and via syndication.
Regal 2800- Australian Launch
There has never been so much hype surrounding a new boat launch as the Regal 2800
and now you can see first hand why this is one day boat that can't be
overlooked. Once you see her, she will jump straight to number one on
your shortlist! Yes, she's that good. Having jumped aboard her yesterday
to take her to the Show, we were blown away by her luxury, sporty feel,
not to mention the amazing performance.
You will love her innnovative power tower, electric swim platform and
massive boat party style layout! She's made to entertain your family and
all your friends in comfort and style. Of course, the patented and
award winning FasTrac Hull is always a brilliant feature, seen on all
Regal Boats, that gives you the smoothest, driest and quickest ride on
the market. Not to mention you get 26% better performance from your
engine and 30% better fuel economy!
Bravo and congratulations to Regal Boats! It's because of their
exceptional models that we win more awards in Australia than any other
dealer! What an honour to represent such a brilliant family owned
company that strives to achieve perfection!
Regal 2500 RX- Australian Launch
Boats are absolutely dominating the sport boat/cruiser market and we
love that they constantly push the boundaries and develop all new
features and models year upon year! The 2500 RX is the most sporty and sexy sport boat which is great for family cruising and advanced watersports!
You're guaranteed to turn heads every where you go when your boating on Sydney Harbour and beyond.
You will love the innovative power tower, sport graphics, upgraded
stereo performance package and the all new colour schemes and interior
Chris Craft 32 Launch- Australia's Award Winning Big Luxury Day Boat
is more wow factor is this big day boat, than words can express! If you
have a passion for prestige cars, than the Chris Craft is your own
water alternative. A Chris Craft is like your Aston Martin, Lamborghini
or Bentley on water and when you jump aboard, it's easy to see why!
And did I mention the dash on a Chris Craft is based off a 1960's Aston Martin?
The 32 Launch has
a cabin to sleep 2 overnight which is absolutely brilliant for a
bowrider. The head (toilet) onboard is in a league of its own! You will
delight all your friends and family on this exceptionally sized 'day
boat' that begs for lengthy off-shore cruising! I promise you, you'd be
hardpressed to get even a drop on the windscreen!
This is dayboating at it's finest!
Absolute 45 Fly
The Absolute 45 Fly
was such a hero at last year's Boat Show that we knew she had to take
the stage again this year! She certainly struts her stuff and we refuse
to believe there could be any other 45 footer that could truly compare
to her euro-chic appeal!
Available for forward order and by syndication, she's a must see on our stand!
Regal 2100 SURF EDITION- AUSTRALIAN LAUNCH
Australia's Award Winning Regal 2100 is now available in this all new Regal 2100 Surf Edition!
The 2100 Surf Edition is set to be yet another game changer for
watersports enthusiasts and family cruising alike. We have this
exceptional new model on display in Hall 5, Stand 501.
Wakesurfing might be the coolest new tow sport to develop in boating in
the past 50 years. It’s low-impact and the basics are fairly easy to
master, so kids and adults can all enjoy it. The only caveat — it’s not
really a tow sport. Sure, you use a tow rope to start, but once up and
in the sweet spot of the boat’s wake, you use the power generated by the
wave, not the boat. To do so you have to get ridiculously close to the
transom, a fact that previously made it safe to enjoy only behind
V-drive and inboard boats with six-figure sticker prices. Earlier this
year, Volvo Penta introduced its Forward Drive, which has a lower unit
like a sterndrive but with the props facing forward — so that they pull
the boat rather than push it, like Volvo’s innovative IPS system for
diesel engines does. The Forward Drive tucks the props in
front of the drive rather than sticking out behind, with the extended
swim platform adding an extra layer of protection. With the RX package,
you get upgraded upholstery and graphics plus the PowerTower — a
boarding must-have that raises the tow point up and closer to the boat’s
centre of gravity, eliminating rider pull during elevated tow sports
like wakeboarding and wakeskating. It’s tricked out with speakers and
swiveling board racks, and it lowers with the push of a button for
trailering or transiting under bridges. The Surf Edition adds the Forward Drive,
the Regal View helm — a touch-screen master command multifunction
display — surf tabs and a ballast system. With Regal View, the driver
can set the controls and adjust the surf tabs to the rider’s preferences
and then set the boat so that it automatically accelerates to the
desired speed and makes the boat list to either port or starboard to
help sculpt the wake to the rider’s preferred side. Two 80-gallon
ballast bags sit under the sun pad to either side of the transom, and a
third one fills up the insole locker in the cockpit. They fill with
water at the push of a button on the Regal View.
CHRIS CRAFT 28 CORSAIR- The Epitome of Sydney Harbour Boating
When you think of Chris Craft, the first image that springs to most people's minds is the Corsair 28.
She's been a favourite amongst Sydney's elite boating community for so
many years and was described as the epitome of Sydney Harbour boating.
There's boating and then there's Chris Crafting.
Whenever I'm talking about boats, I warn people, "don't ever go on a
Chris Craft unless it's a serious option for calling her your own as it
will change your entire of perception of what boating represents." I
know this is as a fact as it was true for me and for everyone that owns
one. In fact, I recall a wonderful Chris Craft client who within about a
minute of being on his test drive with us said "damn it...I knew it
would be good, but not this good."
A Chris Craft isn't just a pretty face, she's an exceptional performer!
Her unique deep flared bow absolutely cuts through the chop like nothing
else and her turning circle of a 20c peice is exciting, exhilerating,
adrenalin inducing and absolutely addictive!
look forward to seeing you all at the Boat Show! Trust me, this is one
show you don't want to miss and of course, if you're doing some pre-show
research, feel free to contact me for any further information or
brochures on any of our models.
Happy Boating from Lee, Steve and the Premier/ Luxury Boat SyndicatesTeam.
