QUINTREX’S BIGGEST FAN GOES TO KINDY BOOK WEEK

Meet Hugh, he is Quintrex’s biggest fan and is only 3 years old. Born with a passion for boats and trailers, Hugh proudly dressed up for kindy book week as a Quintrex 420 Explorer Trophy, his favourite boat from the Quintrex Brochure. 

While other kids are dressed up as superheros and tv characters, Hugh stood out of the crowd and was the teachers favourite in his Quintrex 420 Explorer Trophy costume.

Growing up, Hugh took every chance he could to play with boats. Full of creativity, he built a fleet of Lego trucks, boats and trailers. He would take his creations outside and set sail in the big puddles around his home.

If he was lucky, Grandma and Grandpa would leave their Quintrex Renegade in the drive way, his favourite playground. This was Hugh’s chance to open every hatch, turn every knob, flick every switch and climb over every inch of the boat.

Anytime Amanda (Hugh’s mother) takes him out for a drive, she needs to leave early because Hugh will ask to stop by the local boat ramp. Completely mesmerised by all the boats, he points out every Quintrex and can tell which drivers need more practice backing up a trailer.

Hugh’s love for the Quintrex 420 Explorer Trophy started when Amanda was reading a bedtime story and Hugh asked his mom for a book about boats. So Amanda set out down to Barclay Marine and found the perfect book, a Quintrex Brochure.

It was a dream come true for Hugh, pictures of beautiful boats from front to back and catchy phrases that make sweet dreams about one day being in his favourite boat.

Bed time stories include Hugh and Amanda telling stories to each other about the pictures, catch phrases and descriptions. Hugh’s imagination never stops, making up fascinating stories about exciting boating adventures on every page of the Quintrex Brochure.

When the lights go out, he slips his favourite book under his pillow and falls asleep dreaming about the Quintrex 420 Explorer Trophy.

‘He knows every part of the boat’ said Amanda ‘he loves to point out where the motor is, the propeller and the electric motor of the Quintrex’.

‘He is already turning into quite the fisho!’ said Hugh’s Grandfather ‘catching Flatheads and Whitings’.
