The Sydney International Boat Show is the only show of its kind in Australia since 1968 and will be held this year from the 31st July to the 4th August.

An estimated 60,000 visitors will be treated to a stunning array of new vessels being unveiled for the very first time on the world stage.

Darling Harbour is undergoing a massive upgrade and subsequently the 2014 show will be staged at two locations.

The spectacular Cockle Bay Marina that can fit up to 300 boats of varying size, always a show highlight, remains on its traditional site while the remainder of the show will be held at a purpose-built facility, Sydney Exhibition Centre, Glebe Island.

Ferry services and bus shuttles will link the two sites making it easy for boating enthusiasts to see it all while enjoying a first class day by magnificent Sydney Harbour.

One aspect of the event will not have changed – it remains ‘the place’ to see the latest and greatest products by Australia’s and the world’s boating industry. The event will also take place in six undercover halls where entertainment will be guaranteed for the whole family with numerous stands, fashion shows, the display of historic vessels and more. 

The 47th Sydney International Boat Show will be from 10am to 6pm at Cockle Bay Marina, Darling Harbour and 10am to 8pm at the Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island.
