The 53rd Sydney International Boat Show was held in the iconic Darling Harbour and International Convention Centre from July 28 to August 1, welcoming over 45,000 visitors. With 240 exhibitors, 900 boats on display and a host of entertainment and activities, this year’s show was a return to form for the Australian marine industry’s premiere event.
The Market Herald Fancy Nautica was on the ground filming From The Deck in our on-site studio, with presenter Iolande Skinner interviewing a wide range of industry leaders to gain exclusive insights across the five days. At the show, every business from sail makers to scuba dive operators showcased the best products, boats and experiences to be had on the water. Some of the most innovative and fascinating exhibitors were on display as well as some of the country’s most impressive superyachts and vessels of all shapes and sizes.

The long-anticipated return of the Sydney International Boat show after a two year hiatus went down a treat in the harbour city and the show’s organisers could not have been happier with its reception.
It was great to see the crowds in the tens of thousands of people over the past few days. People enjoying the opportunity to get out and ignite their passion for boating and all that a boat show like this offers.

The Sydney International Boat Show not only provided a platform for an impressive amount of sales, but also for some major announcements. The merging of Boating Industry Association Victoria into BIA Ltd and some briefings on the work done in consultation with State and Federal Government to advance the country’s marinas, shipyards, marine safety and infrastructure.
It was a very successful return after the pandemic. The New South Wales Government’s Covid-19 recovery plan committed more than A$530 million towards attracting major events back to the state and particularly its capital, Sydney.
We responded to the NSW Government COVID Recovery Plan and call in October last year to revive events and get people back in the city, we understood the need for leadership and the need to put this event on for our members and for our public.
