The comprehensive show programme for this year’s Auckland On Water Boat Show has been published in both traditional print and a digital format.

Adding the digital format of the 2013 show programme, using the Realview online publishing platform, offers show visitors a simple way to check out which exhibitors they want to visit at the show, see highlights such as the numerous new boats being launched at the show and view a show site map.

'The programme is available at the show, as usual,' says the event’s CEO Michelle Khan. 'And 12,000 copies were distributed with the September issue of Boating New Zealand magazine to subscribers living Taupo and north.

'The new digital format allows us and exhibitors to share more images and video links which makes the programme more informative, entertaining and interactive.'

The 26 to 29 September running of the Auckland On Water Boat Show – the 15th edition of the annual event formerly called the Auckland International Boat Show – takes place in Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre and the surrounding Viaduct Harbour.

New Zealand’s largest on-water boat show features over two hundred boats of all sizes, including more than 90 on the water, easily accessible from the purpose-built marina.

Alongside the sail and power boats is a vast range of marine-related products and services – from stand-up paddleboards and kayaks to fishing gear, navigational equipment, marine electronics and stereos, safety equipment, wet weather gear and clothing, paint finishes, engines and more.

'The show’s going to be huge this year!' says Khan. 'We can’t squeeze another exhibitor in so the show’s going to be absolutely packed with the latest and best products and services for powerboat users, sailors, fishermen, kayakers, PWC riders, launch owners, and paddle-boarders. Make the most of the opportunity to talk to New Zealand’s best marine retailers – they’re as passionate as you are about all things on-water, so set yourself up with the boats and equipment you need before the new summer season gets into full swing.'

Tickets are available online from - Tickets Website - at a discounted online-only price of $18 per adult day pass, or at the gate, $20 per adult. Children under 15 years of age are free.

The Auckland On Water Boat Show opens at 10 am on all four days, closing at 6:00 pm Thursday through to Saturday and 5:00 pm on Sunday, 30 September. See Event for further details about the show or find Auckland On Water Boat Show on Facebook Page.
