The Southern Hemisphere's biggest boat show, opens from the 2nd to the 6th of August at the ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour, attracting the world's most recognised and respected boating manufacturers, suppliers and retailers. Whether you love the inland waterways of Australia or prefer the open waters off the coast, exhibitors at the Sydney International Boat Show promise everything for the recreational marine enthusiast.

One of the most unique vessels at the show this year includes the amphibious Sealegs land and water craft. Not needing a marina or established boat ramp, the Sealegs can literally drive directly into the water from the beach or shore using 3 hydraulically powered wheels attached to the hull, which have no drag once fully retracted. "This year we are delighted to launch to the world Sealegs very own 8.5 Alloy Cabin which will make its debut at this year's Sydney International Boat Show. We have already presold to customers in Australia off the drawing board and this model is going to be a real gamechanger for this country," Sealegs Australian Sales Manager Michael Rigby said.

Also on display will be the Sealegs 7.7 metre Sport D-Tube and 7.1 Sport Rib, already popular with shorefront property owners and waterway regulatory bodies worldwide.

Luxury powerhouse Riveria presents the world premiere of the latest in its Sports Motor Yacht collection. The new 39 Sports Motor Yacht headlines Riviera's on-water showcase of 11 motor yachts. Riviera also plans to exhibit the new sporty and adventurous 395 SUV and the long-range and luxurious 72 Sports Motor Yacht. Their Show line-up further promises to include the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, the blue-water 52 Enclosed and 43 Open Flybridge models, the 575 and 445 SUVs and their classic Belize 54 Daybridge. Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: "Our team at Riviera is proud to unveil our outstanding new 39 Sports Motor Yacht to boating aficionados in Sydney. She provides a compelling new entree to the Riviera family. Our world-class design team and engineers have crafted a sophisticated new hull and deck design, with raised bulwarks on the side decks and multiple entertainment spaces that are emblematic of Riviera Sports Motor Yachts."

After a profound success in 2017, the Australia International Dive Expo joins the Sydney International Boat Show for a second year. Here you'll find exhibitors with all the gear and information needed to enjoy Scuba diving as a sport, for business, research, conservation or recreation. The on-site trial pool presents the opportunity to experience scuba diving under the guidance of professional instructors, while the dive gear workshops are a great place for novices to learn about the equipment needed to start diving, or for experienced divers wanting to learn how to keep their gear well maintained. Special dive presentations include speakers, workshops, dive club news and activities, and exclusive local and international travel deals.

With almost 5 million people enjoying our waterways each year in Australia, the Show includes plenty of other education and entertainment as well. Fishing master-classes, adventurers displays and on water equipment demonstrations are just a few of the many activities included with the entry ticket.

The show is open each day from 10AM until 7PM. Up to date details available at www.sydneyboatshow.com.au.
