Tauranga Mayor and keen boater Greg Brownless celebrated the official opening of Lusty & Blundell’s new Tauranga branch on April 4 by cutting the ribbon.

The opening, which was also an NZ Marine After 5 event, gave Mayor Brownless, industry members and media the chance to check out the new showroom and service centre.

Guests were able to meet branch manager Morgan Brodie and his staff, Grant McMillen, Paul Jury, Kahlo Bubb and Sam Wilkinson. They could also mix with TV celebrities and 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.

Lusty & Blundell’s new showroom and sales centre at 26 Marsh St, next to the Tauranga Marine Precinct, is perfectly positioned to service the growing number of commercial, superyacht and recreational vessels visiting Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty.

Lusty & Blundell Tauranga is open Monday to Friday from 7.30am to 5.00pm, ph (07) 927-9270. www.lusty-blundell.co.nz
