Sail-World.com : Rosehill record, JDs prospers in diversity & consumer index rises

Rosehill record, JDs prospers in diversity & consumer index rises

Up here (Gold Coast), there is a decidedly Autumnal edge to the air each morning, although thoroughly extinguished by the 30 degree top temp around lunchtime. Still, there are plenty of reasons to take to the water and with consumer confidence at a six month high – much to the surprise of financial pundits – dealer incentives and competitive price points could just pay off over the next few months as retail forecasts aim high.

Jeni Bone, founding Editor of MarineBusiness-World.com -    
If the so-called recession is coming to a close, we will soon know following the stats from the 21st Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. But first, there’s the Brisbane Tinnie & Tackle Show (20-22 March), and then on the international calendar, Kuwait (24-26 March) and China (16-19 April).

This week, as well as news about upcoming boat shows, we present a review of the recent Telwater Media Day by Bob Wonders who was on the spot for the big reveal of some of the company’s plans and innovations for 2009.

There’s also a profile of JDs Boatshed in Sydney’s south. A composite of various marine businesses, including Atwell’s Boatshed at Burraneer Bay, JDs is also the distributor for the award-winning Cobalt brand from the US, among other things. This diversity has kept the business ticking along, despite a competitive market.

In addition, there’s an overview of the recent Superyacht Conference held in Abu Dhabi, a plethora of new products and an update on the impact and recovery efforts of the Moreton Bay oil spill.

This week we give you some more information about online advertising. We know a little about it, we deliver more than 90% of the online marine news in the Asia Pacific and advertisers are working hard with different kinds of programs to do business with our audience - There is nothing like reaching an Asia Pacific audience of 1.2 million boaters to give your business the best possible change of gaining market share and being well placed when business picks up.

Remember to visit www.marinebusinessnews.com throughout the week for the latest breaking news, and please feel free to send any of your own.

Wherever you are, have a great week and enjoy the new season!
