Boaties and outdoor enthusiasts have another reason to celebrate

Sydney Trailerboat Show BIA NSW
It may seem an unlikely move to change a boat show that over the years has proven itself arguably as the most well attended regional exhibition in the nation, but organisers of the well-known Rosehill Trailer Boat Show have found a new home in the modern facility at Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park.

Having nurtured its roots in the early sixties at Silverwater Park, a demand for better space saw it move to Rosehill over a decade ago.

The move in 2014 to Sydney Showground heralds its next stage of growth adapting to the market requirement for more space and a superior exhibition facility. It will be known as the Sydney Trailerboat & Outdoor Leisure Show.

In a testament of support for the move to Sydney Olympic Park, leading insurance provider, Nautilus Marine Insurance immediately offered their support and sponsorship for the event. Through their many sporting and business alliances, Nautilus will be bringing to the show a number of personalities to both entertain and educate our visitors.

Lyndon Turner, Managing Director of Nautilus said 'The show is a perfect fit for our products. We believe that good boating is both fun and safe and by nature, our clients love the outdoors. We are looking forward to being at the show and our team will be on hand to help make the event enjoyable for everyone.'

The recreational boating lifestyle encompasses a broad audience with a passion for outdoors and healthy living. In keeping with the organisers desire to give everyone access to better understand the opportunities, the event will maintain its free entry for the visiting public.

Located close to Sydney Olympic Park Railway station, public transport provides simple and easy access. An abundance of parking in the surrounding precinct and parking stations offers a low-cost parking solution for those that wish to drive.
The show will operate Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th March from 9 am to 5 pm, and it is envisaged that the event will have in excess of 10,000 visitors over the two days.

The event is has been owned and run by the Boating Industry Association since the early 1960’s. The Associations General Manager, Roy Privett, said 'The move to Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park will allow the association to better show our visitors how good the boating and outdoor lifestyle is.

'Off course, many of our visitors already enjoy boating and the great outdoors, and for them they have an opportunity to see what is on offer from the many businesses who will be participating.'

Fractional Ownership of Superyachts - revisited
“He knows the Aman junkie kind of crowd like no other. If there’s anyone who can do this, it’s Zecha.” “In Asia, people are starting to look at yachting, but not in the same way as the Russians in the 90s with those massive mansions at sea. Asians want the exclusivity, privacy and security without breaking the bank. We know the rich Asian millennials from Hong Kong, China and Southeast Asia are starting to buy yachts this size from Feadship but... 'What do I do with it now?”
