'Boats in the marina at Darling Harbour - 2013 Sydney International Boat Show'    Cassandra Sabin, MarineBusiness-World.com    Click Here to view large photo

When the 2013 Sydney International Boat Show throws open the doors at Darling Harbour on Thursday (Aug 1), those who rate themselves as ‘powerboat fans’ will think they’ve died and gone to heaven!

From massive motor yachts to runabouts and ‘tinnies’, if it floats it is likely to be on display at the nation’s number one recreational boating exhibition.

Of course, what has helped the Sydney International Boat Show become such a major event on the city’s calendar stems form the sheer variety of product on display; boats will comprise the full range, including sailboats, runabouts, half-cabins, ‘tinnies’ sport boats and majestic sport fishermen.

Add in massive display of marine electronics, engines, fishing tackle, nautical clothing and all manner of boating equipment and accessories and you’ll clearly see why the Sydney International Boat Show is such an important cog on the wheel that comprises the Australian boating industry.

As usual, the ‘heavyweight champs’, the larger of the vessels on display, will be moored at the floating marina on Cockle Bay, conveniently alongside the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre.

The marina will be home for the five-day show of many of the best-known boats available worldwide, from the ‘home grown’ beauties such as Maritimo, Riviera and Caribbean to the luxury imports from Chris-Craft, Sunseeker, Hatteras and Grand Banks.

One such craft on the marine will be making its Sydney debut, having previously been seen only on the waters of the Queensland Gold Coast.

Not only is it making a debut, I would wager that, many powerboat aficionados have never heard of its name.

The vessel in question is the Sessa C38, a rather stylish sportboat from a family-owned company, Sessa Marine, in Italy, in Cividate al Piano to be precise.

This company produces a range of vessels in motor yacht, flying bridge and sedan-style designs in the 6.09-metre (20’) to 21.33-metre (70’) range.

I found the Sessa C38 to be quite an impressive craft, particularly in view of its several innovative features such as two galleys, one below as normal and one in the cockpit making for added convenience for outdoors dining.

Another feature which stood out was the clever manner in which the designers and really made maximum use of space on board.

Two double cabins, a bathroom of impressive space, a spacious cockpit, including a superb chaise lounge for some lucky crew member, all add to the feeling that this Sessa is much larger than its listed 38’ 4' (11.70-metres) overall length.

Powered by dual Volvo Penta stern drive engines, the Sessa C38 sits up on the plane at only 16 knots (18mph), but tweak the throttles and those reliable Volvo Penta power plants will have you running at a brisk 36 knots (41.5mph).

The sliding sunroof over the bridge area certainly added to the Sessa C38’s style.

Walk around side decks, marine grade stainless steel rails, excellent joinery all gave this craft a touch of elegance.

Way to go, cruising the Med, the Sessa C38 looks very much at home. - Sydney, a power boater’s paradise -  Supplied .   Click Here to view large photo


In conclusion, well worthy of closer inspection.

The Sydney International Boat Show will be open 10am to 8pm at the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre and 10a, to 6pm on the floating marina.

Owned and managed by the Boating Industry Association of NSW, the Sydney International Boat Show is poised to undergo a major change following this year’s event when the convention and exhibition centres close down for a multi-million dollar re-development,

For the next three years, the internal component of the show will be housed in a purpose-built facility at Glebe Island, but the spectacular floating marina on Cockle Bay stays as is.
