Adelaide Boat Show Opens Tomorrow


The Adelaide Boat Show commences tomorrow (Friday) at the Adelaide Convention Centre, with doors open from 10AM.

From tomorrow and continuing through the weekend, SA’s most comprehensive recreational marine exhibition fills the Convention Centre, presenting everything for the boating lover, covering cruising, ski and wakeboarding, kayaking, fishing and more.

The top marine dealers in the state have gathered alongside government agencies, offering visitors the chance to view and compare products, learn about the features of various watercraft, and hear about the regulations and safeguards in place to protect our state’s waterways.

Up to five million Australians enjoy recreational time on the water each year, and South Australia’s boating facilities are considered world class. Well-equipped marinas can be found locally and in regional coastal centres, so there’s high-quality infrastructure in place for boaters of all persuasions. SA is fast becoming a well-established first-choice destination for cruising, long-range fishing or inshore water sports.

Darren Vaux, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd who organise the event, said “South Australia has some of the most accessible and stunning coastal or inland waterways. The Adelaide Boat Show again showcases this lifestyle and embraces the tremendous enthusiasm Australian’s have for spending time in and around the water. With hundreds of boats on display, and all the gear to go along with them, this show leaves no doubt about the many ways individuals and families can do so,” he said.

Whatever form or style of boating meets your needs, the Adelaide Boat Show presents the extensive range of marine equipment available in this country today.
