50th Sydney International Boat Show

The Sydney International Boat show once again wowed visitors with it’s iconic location, magnitude of sparkling new boats on display and diversity in it’s exhibitors. With a record visitor turn out celebrating it’s 50th year, this years show proved once again that this event is one not to miss if you’re just as obsessed with all things boating as we are here at Charter Yachts Australia. 

CYA Stand at SIBS 2017

OUR HOME AT SIBS 2017

Charter Yachts Australia Managing Directors, Annie & John, had a fun filled and busy week meeting new faces and catching up with old ones from past charterers to boat owners at our stand in the New Exhibition Centre. Every year Annie & John look forward to being able to connect with visitors and discuss their favourite topic – bareboating in the Whitsundays! It’s their chance to talk in depth about the experiences you can have while on charter, the boats that are going to best suit you AND offer you some great boat show specials!

SIBS 2017

THE PERFECT LOCATION

Returning to its home at Darling Harbour and with stands showing in the newly opened International Convention Centre, the perfect backdrop for this show was on full display as attendees wandered through the many exhibitors and countless boats on display. Even if you were a plus one (aka “the tag along”) to your boating enthusiast, you couldn’t help remarking at this iconic location and the marvellous weather Sydney put on for this year’s event.

Not Just Boats at SIBS

IT’S NOT JUST BOATS AT THE BOAT SHOW

While the name may say otherwise, Sydney International Boat Show showed us just what else you can do when you have a boat at your disposal! With a large diving exhibition on display giving visitors a unique opportunity to learn more about diving and other fun activities accessible from your boat (like Stand Up Paddle Boarding) boating just became a lot more appealing to those landlubbers who may not  havethought boating could be so inclusive.

CHARTER BOAT OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES – JOIN THE CYA FAMILY! 

One of the best things Annie & John love about SIBS is talking to people about boat ownership. Nothing beats speaking to excited new boat owners or potential owners about how they can turn their new toy into a great investment by joining the CYA family & putting their boat into our fleet. We have some great opportunities this year for Charter Boat Ownership including the below MY44 from Fountaine Pajot.  If you missed out speaking to us at the show click below for more information about Charter Boat Ownership & the MY 44 from Fountaine Pajot.
