“A highlight of every Sydney International Boat Show is the outboards we have for testing on the water and this year will be no different with some of our most innovative outboards available to try out,” Mercury Marine ANZP Senior Marketing Manager Anthony Brown said.
“Boaters who have the chance to test these engines will undoubtedly be amazed by the Verado’s extraordinary performance while the Avator brings a whole new experiencing to boating.
“There is no better way to test out our latest outboards than to get out on the water and take them for a spin and I encourage all attendees to visit the waterfront area and take part in this exceptional opportunity to explore Mercury’s latest and most advanced outboards.”
