The Sydney International Boat Show opens this Thursday (2nd August) at ICC Sydney and purpose-built marina at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, with beautiful vessels and world premieres to delight lovers of the boating and cruising lifestyle.

Making her Australian debut is the 66 Manhattan motor cruiser from Sunseeker. This prestigious and innovative new model is designed to maximise space and entertainment options with panoramic hull and saloon windows providing naturally lit living spaces. The newly configured flybridge also creates the feeling of being on board a much larger craft and has been designed with extensive seating throughout, large forward sunbathing areas and a well-equipped wet-bar. Thanks to the galley being situated on the main deck, there is room enough for four very spacious cabins below including two large twin cabins, a forward VIP suite and standout full-beam master suite with its own private stairway access from the saloon; a first for Sunseeker in this size range.

Premium Italian innovation joins the Show this year, thanks to specialist Gineico presenting their new generation Quick MC2 X-Series anti-roll gyro stabiliser, a revolution in the gyro concept. In rough waters, a constantly rolling boat can become unpleasant for passengers. Previously cost prohibitive on smaller vessels, the patented design MC2 X-Series stabiliser is approximately 30% smaller compared to existing gyro stabilisers on the market. That means these incredibly small, simple and efficient gyros are much easier to install in new designs and just as easy to retrofit to existing vessels. Gineico will also exhibit water makers, socket-mounted stainless-steel tender supports, helm chairs with integrated boat controls, stainless steel swim ladders, new LED backlit boat names, as well as superyacht-quality folding deck chairs and folding cockpit tables.

The Sydney International Boat Show will be the first opportunity for Australians to see the world's most powerful outboard engine. Seven Marine, in conjunction with its Australian sales and service representative Luxury Marine Performance will display two of the 627hp outboards built by Seven Marine. The outboards are designed upon a 6.2 litre supercharged V8 platform with closed cooling, wet-disc clutch transmission and fuel injection. All models are offered with the opportunity to customise the outboard's cowling colour and graphics configuration, add LED lighting into the cowling on the 577hp & 627hp models, as well as configure the outboards with contra-rotating props, joystick and dual station controls.

Reaching a significant milestone, Sylvania Marina's Paul Ghosn is celebrating 40 years of exhibiting at the Sydney International Boat Show, with Paul's son Nathan enjoying his 33rd year. Over the past 40 years, Sylvania Marina has been the NSW dealer for International Marine (now in their 58th year of boat manufacturing) known as Bertram in the early days, and then Caribbean from the late 80s. Both International Marine and Sylvania Marina remain family owned businesses, and the latter could well be the longest standing dealer for one brand of boat in Australia. Sylvania Marine will present the Caribbean 2300, 24 sports runabout, 2700 sports runabout and 35 flybridge.

Adult entry to the show is $22, with children (6-17 years old) $13. Kids aged five and under are admitted free. Family tickets (2 adults + 3 kids) are $49, Seniors $20 and Pensioners are $16. If you arrive after 5pm, individual single entry tickets are just $5 when purchased from any of the ticket booths at the Show. Multiple day tickets for return visits are also available.

The ticket gives entry to both exhibition levels of the International Convention Centre, the popular fishing master-classes, the on-water marina at Cockle Bay, entry to the co-located Australia International Dive Expo, bumper boat rides for the kids at the 16 metre pool located on the open-air Event Deck, and the Boating Safety Zone presented by the Show's Partner in Safety Transport for NSW.
