One of the many things I love about the Sydney International Boat Show is the cosmopolitan range of craft. As far as Australian boat shows figure, this is a key platform. Here, the world's biggest boatbuilders release their new models Down Under. This year's show is no different, with a great range of boats from all corners of the globe. Like moths to the flame, they have descended on Sydney Harbour. Here are just a few of the key craft (photographed in order above): the Sunseeker 34M with twin 2400hp engines for about $20 million; the big American Sea Ray with its $7 million range of boats including the new Axius steerable sterndrive 370 Sundancer sportscruiser; and yacht builders like Hanse are making waves even with modest boats like the 320. For a taste of where the global boating market is at, check out the imported class at this weekend's Sydney International Boat Show.
