An Open Air Event Deck will be packed with fun pieces of kit you can actually try in a giant inflatable pool which will play host to on-water demonstrations and free kids bumper boat rides.

Watch detailed fishing demonstrations by some of Australia’s best and most highly regarded fishers. You can get some tips on perfecting your technique so that pretty soon you will be hauling in your favourite fish and posing for the obligatory picture.

VIP Onboard The Jackson

If you are more of a cocktails and caviar type of boating enthusiast who enjoys the finer things in life, one of the biggest attractions at this year’s show will be a A$15 million luxury 60-metre superyacht, The Jackson. The superyacht was built by Sealink and has been refitted to allow for up to 700 guests on board at a time for cocktails. Drinks will be flowing and the atmosphere will be electric when The Jackson hosts guests for a VIP experience. Just look for “The Harbour Lounge.”

The superyacht was designed specifically for cruising around Port Jackson and is described as a floating bar. It features sumptuous interiors, multiple seating areas and three magnificent floors of explorable social areas.

Three hundred and sixty-degree views of Sydney Harbour through massive windows are the backdrop for your Boat Show soirée where expert bartenders will concoct your favourite drink and guests can get a taste of the superyacht lifestyle complete with gourmet food and live music.

The Majesty 100

Thirty-two-metre superyacht, The Majesty, will make an appearance in Sydney this year and at the Sydney International Boat Show, you can actually go aboard and find out what life is like on charter. UAE-based yacht designers Gulf Craft have delivered a superyacht of impeccable class, evidenced in the premium marble countertops and white oak flooring. The superstructure and exterior of the vessel were all penned by Gulf Craft’s in-house team of naval architects.

The biggest boat set to be on show at this year’s event, The Majesty 100 boasts two 1,900 horsepower MAN engines which can power it to a respectable maximum speed of 23 knots. The V-drive propulsion system keeps noise and vibration to a minimum. A clever interior layout is another one of the vessel’s strong points.

A pivotal design cue is to allow the free flow of foot traffic between interior and outdoor spaces through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. A commonly attempted goal for many superyacht designers but executed very well on board the Majesty 100.

Take a look at the luxurious, partially enclosed flybridge allowing evening drinks every day of your expedition in any weather. You are able to enjoy panoramic views from the highest vantage point in the yacht in comfort. Again, glass doors are easily opened and closed to provide those in the flybridge with heating, air conditioning or a comfortable, relaxing open-air retreat with seascape vistas.

Fleming Yachts 55

The Sydney International Boat Show is not just about enormous superyachts. Most of the boats at the show are actually smaller watercraft, like power cruisers. One of the most respected names in the Australian boat building industry, Fleming Yachts, will be bringing one of their very best.

The 18.5-metre Fleming Yachts 55 is the company’s highest-selling cruiser. One of the most popular production yachts ever, Fleming Yachts reached the impressive milestone of constructing the 250th hull for this raised pilothouse motor yacht in 2019.

With a range of 2,000 nautical miles at a leisurely eight knots, the iconic design was first put into production back in 1986. The experienced team at Fleming have updated the yacht over the years as new technology has become available, but the hull design and retro look of yesteryear have remained.

There will be a Fleming 55 at the Sydney International Boat Show for you to board and admire. Wood detailing and an efficient interior layout have made this boat one of the best offerings available in Australia. A long list of special features includes a dumbwaiter from the Miele-equipped galley to the Portuguese flybridge above, marble or granite countertops in the master suite and a deck design that minimises bilge contamination when washed down.

Jet Board Australia

Surfing is fun, but unless you are lucky enough to live close to a good break it is a challenging hobby to undertake. The Sydney International Boat Show will feature the latest motorised and electric jet boards. These uber-cool pieces of equipment are a must-have for your water toy collection and provide the yacht owner or maritime enthusiast with hours of fun.

Jet boards can travel as fast as 64 km/h and at this year’s show, one of Australia’s most experienced and knowledgable jet board dealers will be exhibiting some of its best-selling models.

The Sydney International Boat Show is Australia’s premier boating show hosted in the iconic Harbour and after being cancelled last year it’s back bigger and better than ever. Taking place in the gorgeous Darling Harbour, accommodation options and some of the best restaurants and bars in Sydney are all close by.
