All Marine Spares will be hoping to capitalise on a successful appearance as first year exhibitors last year at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

This year, the team at All Marine Spares is taking additional space and moving location to be 'closer to the action' at one of the show’s hubs on the main esplanade.

Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is important for All Marine Spares, according to Sales Manager, Paul Macey.

'The reason we exhibit at Sanctuary Cove is that it is the only Australian boat show that has a large trade element to it. As AMS is a 'trade only' supplier, it fits our criteria well. It is also the show that most of our trade customers attend, so it is good to catch up and put a name on the face etc. We take all the sales staff plus storeman so it it also our annual staffbonding session!'

Paul says the star of this year’s AMS display will be the Craftsman Diesel CM480, an 80hp engine that produces 170nm of torque at 2200 rpm.

'It’s a great new product,' he explains. 'It would particularly suit the repower market looking to move up from the older style Perkins Ford etc in the 80hp range. It is a naturally aspirated diesel built on the Hyundai platform that is simple to maintain and very fuel efficient.

It is coupled to a ZF25A Hydraulic transmission with an 8 degree down angle. It comes as standard with the deluxe instrument panel containing Tacho, voltmeter,oil pressure and temperature gauge plus a full alarm system and warning lights.

The Craftsman brand has a range of diesel from 12hp through to 42hp engines built on the Mitsubishi industrial engines, and specifically designed for easy control and minimal need for maintenance.
We currently have stock of all the motors except the brand new 80hp which will arrive in Australia later in the year
