Auckland On Water Boat Show looking ship-shape

The 26 to 29 September running of the 2013 Auckland On Water Boat Show is looking like being another beauty with a large percentage of the exhibitors already confirmed by show organisers NZ Marine Industry Association.

With the show’s timing scheduled to facilitate boating enthusiasts’ preparation for summer boating activities, the Auckland On Water Boat Show is the only boating expo in New Zealand which enables boaties to experience a range of vessels on land and on the water during the event.

The show’s CEO Michelle Khan says the popular and long-running annual event once again returns to the world-class facilities of Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, part of the Wynyard Quarter in downtown Auckland.

'This year we expect around 200 marine-oriented businesses with the latest and best products and services for powerboat users, sailors, fishermen, kayakers, PWC riders, launch owners, and paddle-boarders to make the most of the opportunity to talk to boaties before the new summer season gets into full swing,' says Ms Khan whose team has already secured bookings for more than eighty per cent of the exhibition sites.

Boats of all sizes will be berthed alongside the Viaduct Marina, while around the Viaduct Events Centre a huge range of trailer boats, yachts, personal water craft and more are on display. Inside the centre and three adjoining pavilions, hundreds more marine technology, engine, navigation and safety experts will share their passion and knowledge of all things ‘on water’.

Larger, more varied displays are expected from a number of exhibitors, says Khan.

'Numerous new boats are being launched and exhibitors have indicated a range of new products perfect for summer boating are also being released at this year’s show.

Khan says the signs are clear that the 2013 event is set to build on last year’s successes after the 2012 Auckland On Water Boat Show wrapped up with boaties enthusiastically purchasing everything from shackles, lifejackets, electronic equipment and fishing rods to motor yachts worth several million dollars in one of the largest displays of the New Zealand marine industry ever seen.

From 26 to 29 September, the Auckland On Water Boat Show opens at 10 am on all four days, closing at 6 pm Thursday through to Saturday and 5 pm on Sunday, 30 September.

Rather, it is fascination and wonder, because for the sweeping majority, this is as close as they will ever get to Mother Nature’s marvels of the deep.

Pantaenius Insurance – How good does it get?
Insurance may not be the buzzword. There is not unobtanium for keels, spinach enhanced sails or vibranium fuel cells Insurance may not be the buzzword. There is not unobtanium for keels, spinach enhanced sails or hulls of cut diamond and vibranium fuel cells powering arc reactors to rave on about. No. It is numbers, facts, risk and documentation. Boring? No. Quite the contrary if you happen to have put your boat up on a reef or Hughie blows it off its mooring, smashes her through everything in sight...
