Sydney International Boat Show opens next week

The Sydney International Boat Show, Australia’s largest boat show, will open its doors on Thursday, July 28 at the Sydney Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.

Promoters said the show, now in its 44th year, will feature a vast array of boats and all the gear that goes with them, as well as entertainment and activities for all the family to enjoy.

Displays we’re told not to be missed include the Nautilus Marine Insurance Fishing Clinic, the Better Boating Lounge, daily Musto fashion shows, the fabulous Walk of Fame, the Discover Boating Tours, a display of historic vessels, an exhibition of marine photography and Club Marine cooking demonstrations.

More than 280 exhibitors, including the cream of the industry’s manufacturers, retailers, importers and distributors, will display goods and services to upwards of 75,000 visitors.

All six halls of the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre will be packed with many millions of dollars worth of marine related products — from boats to boat trailers, fishing tackle to marine electronics to marine engines, and general boating accessories of all shapes, sizes and applications.

On the waters of adjoining Cockle Bay, the largest marina built specifically for a boat show will be home to the "dream boats" — the bluewater cruisers, power and sail, many of which carry prices the equivalent of a Sydney waterfront property.
