Gold Coast single dad Joey Lijewski is the proud owner of a brand new 16-foot Avalon trailer boat after winning a competition during the recent Gold Coast Marine Expo.
Joey defeated four other contestants in the Gold FM radio station “Live in it to win it” competition run throughout the weekend of the Expo.
“My eight-year-old son Jack and I are so excited,” said Joey. “We picked up the boat the weekend after the show and headed straight out on the water. This is going to make our Christmas so special!”
Brett Thurley from Clipper Motor Yachts Australia donated the Avalon centre console boat. The boat came with a Suzuki outboard motor and a trailer, a package valued at $16,000.
“It’s a new brand of fibreglass fish and watersport boat,” said Thurley. “It’s ideal for harbour and estuary fishing and for family fun.
“It is great to know that Joey is going to use the boat well. It has gone to a very worthy winner and we are so excited for him.”
