Plans are well underway for Brisbane’s first on water international boat show to be held at one of Australia’s premier marinas located in Murrarie from October 5 to 7 this year.

The Rivergate International Boat show will bring together the best that life on the water has to offer, from marine accessories, jet skis, power and sail boats to luxury cruisers, super yachts, nautical fashion and a riverside seafood festival.

Rivergate International Boat Show general manager Tracey Toovey outlined the drive behind the decision to stage the event.

'There’s been talk in the industry for a number of years about the need for an on water exhibition in Brisbane and after many months of negotiations and meetings, we decided to stage the event,' Ms Toovey explained.

'While the current economic climate is tough, hosting the show in a location with ample parking, on the doorstep of the CBD, will provide manufacturers and boating-related businesses with the chance to exhibit their products to a broader target market, while providing an opportunity for a younger urban demographic to get a taste for the boating lifestyle.

'Brisbane’s position as a business and pleasure hub for the mining industry also presents further potential for exhibitors to reach prospective clients,' she said.

Rivergate International will have a distinctive family friendly flavour with on-site demonstrations, an international marketplace and a sea trial area where visitors can ‘try before they buy’.

The event is expected to attract in excess of 20,000 visitors over three spectacular Queensland spring days.

Situated just next to the Gateway Bridge in Murrarie, Rivergate Marina and Shipyard is a world-class facility; being the only Australian shipyard in Crew Report’s Top 3 Superyacht Refit Destinations in the world, while remaining at the epitome of Clean Marina standards.
