Central Auckland is set to fill with an exciting display of motor yachts, sailing yachts, RIBs, and amphibious vessels at the 2024 Auckland Boat Show due to take place from 14-17 March. A key feature of the inaugural Moana Auckland festival, the show attracts annual new launches from within New Zealand and across the globe.
This year’s new releases include the New Zealand debut of Italian yacht brand, Sessa Marine, Haines Hunter’s presentation of its recent SP635 release, the debut of three new Princess Yachts models, the New Zealand debut of Finnish all-season boat Sargo, and the unveiling of a new-to-the-market Beneteau boat syndication opportunity, among other new launches.
Also available to view for the first time at the Auckland Boat Show will be high-performance amphibious technology created by New Zealand company Anura. Building modular systems designed to be fitted to a range of hull materials, the company engineers amphibious technology to work for recreational vessels, as well as commercial applications.
Engine heavyweight, Scania will be on show with South Pacific Diesel Systems, presenting leading Swedish technology as part of the show’s repaint, re-power, and repair exhibitor displays. With a wide selection of exhibitors displaying the latest innovation across paint, anti-foul, power, and marine accessories, the show has become a hub for both commercial and recreational marine consumers to discover innovative products to keep their vessel performing at its peak.
The Auckland Boat Show will form part of a plethora of in-water activities during the first edition of Auckland’s Moana Festival. Supported by Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, the festival not only includes the boat show, but 14 other events which celebrate the ocean including a range of regattas and the New Zealand Millennium Cup superyacht regatta, the inaugural Auckland Wooden Boat Festival, the World Manu Champs, Perpetual Guardian’s Sculpture on the Gulf and many more.
Known for its unique sea trial area - the only one of its kind in a New Zealand - the show will give attendees the opportunity to experience how vessels perform on the water, and to meet directly with manufacturers and dealers. Representing the largest in-water display of vessels in New Zealand, The Auckland Boat Show is a one-stop shop for the industry to meet with local and international customers.
On land, exhibitors include a range of brands across the marine industry, from engines and electrical systems to paint and antifouling.
