Quickboats Enters Commercialization Phase For Award-Winning Folding Boat


Quickboats Holdings Pty Ltd last month officially commenced operations, raising the funds needed to commence what it describes as the beginning of ‘a boating revolution'. After a very soft launch, the company has now received over 3000 expressions of interest in its innovative, award-winning, folding boat with over 185 people joining a queue to purchase in the past 3 weeks.

Just one month after officially beginning operations, Quickboats has now entered the commercialization phase of delivering to the market a folding boat that is globally unrivaled in design, quality and price.

“After a successful fund-raising campaign, Quickboat Holdings Pty Ltd is now owned by 25 shareholders” explained Deryck Graham, Quickboats CEO. “We have established a board of directors, appointed a company secretary, and legal advisors. On a corporate level, we are on track.”

The company's website,, has also been launched, together with social media profiles being established on facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube and Vimeo.

“It is has been the buzz created by social media that has confirmed our faith in Quickboats” said Mr Graham. “Even though the first Quickboats won't be available until late 2013, we have already received over 3000 expressions of interest - a number that is growing daily as is the purchaser list.”

Quickboats are uniquely designed folding boats that can be assembled in less than one minute. They remove the need for a trailer, as they can be easily carried on a car's roof racks, or inside caravans and mobile homes, secured in their own carry bags. When not in use they can be hung on a garage wall.

“Quickboats also have a place on luxury yachts, as a space and time-saving alternative to inflatable dinghies and tenders” said Mr Graham. “And the benefits to emergency services and first-response teams are clear.”

In entering this new phase of operations, Quickboats will be liaising with its industrial designers and composite development specialists, with the aim of having prototypes operating in Q2 2013.
