The official opening, which was also a NZ Marine Boating After 5, gave keen boatie Mayor Brownless, industry members and media the chance to check out the new showroom and service centre. It also gave them the chance to meet branch manager Morgan Brodie; staff Grant McMillen, Paul Jury, Kahlo Bubb and Sam Wilkinson; Lusty & Blundell brand ambassadors Scott and Mig (from Fishing and Adventure) and Nicky Sinden (from TradeZone Addicted to Fishing); along with representatives of L&B’s valued partner organisations.
Located at 26 Marsh St, next to the fast-growing Tauranga Marine Precinct, Lusty & Blundell’s new premises are perfectly positioned to service the growing number of commercial, superyacht and recreational vessels visiting Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty.
Those attending the opening took the opportunity to experience some of latest marine technology offered by Lusty & Blundell, including the breakthrough new Raymarine Element Sonar/GPS — capable of producing the sharpest images yet of the underwater world.
The new Lusty & Blundell showroom and sales centre is now open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5.00pm and the team can be contacted at (07) 927-9270.
