Invincible Boat Company, the premium saltwater sport fishing and high-performance boat brand headquartered in Florida, has set out its 2020 agenda with plans to move into international markets, and an early appointment is Sydney-based Boat Monster as distributor for Australia and New Zealand.
Ian Birdsall, vice president international business at Invincible Boats, says, ‘These are going to be very important markets for Invincible and having the right partner to represent our brand there is key. Invincible isn’t just about a quality product, it’s about great customer service as well, and Boat Monster’s Sam and Lucy Wallrock are absolutely the right fit for our long-term plans.’
At the Miami show Invincible announced the next model in its catamaran range. The 46’ Catamaran has been in research and development for more than a year and the new flagship model is the largest ever built by Invincible.
The patented catamaran hull incorporates the best elements from Invincible’s monohulls with the additional stability provided by a multihull design. The hull was designed by Morrelli & Melvin, creators of many America’s Cup and Olympic sailing yachts. Their decades of competitive experience and investment in computational fluid dynamics result in the trademark performance and seakeeping qualities of Invincible’s catamarans.
Boat Monster’s Sam Wallrock says, ‘The team at Boat Monster is thrilled to be adding Invincible Boats to our portfolio of brands and we can’t wait to bring them to Australian shores. We’re particularly excited about the Invincible catamarans which we tested in Miami. We believe there is a huge hole in the market for these versatile, stable, comfortable, high speed outboard powered vessels which we are really looking forward to filling.’ With over 25 years experience working in the marine industry, Sam Wallrock is Master 5 and MED 2 certified and is also a qualified marine engineer and mechanic.
‘The first two catamarans will be arriving in time for the Perth Boat Show where we will be showing them off in all their might and we’ll be unveiling a new Boat Monster website later in the year too which will prominently feature Invincible Boats,’ says Lucy Wallrock.
Invincible Boat Company was founded in 2006. It is headquartered in South Florida where it has a purpose-built factory with showroom facilities and over 300 employees. Invincible’s current product portfolio includes nine semi-custom models ranging from 33’ to 46’ in both monohull and catamaran designs.
