New Zealand’s largest boating spectacle is coming back to the Viaduct Harbour

Come the 3rd of October, crowds will descend upon the glistening Viaduct Harbour to revel in the much-awaited Auckland On Water Boat Show. The country’s largest watercraft extravaganza is back for its 21st year, this time bringing with it over 200 domestic and international marine businesses, alongside a captivating array of goods from boat dealers and manufacturers.

This year’s exhibitors, from both near and far, are sure to keep boat enthusiasts inspired. Maritimo, for example, will be showcasing four prime examples of innovative design, each hand-crafted in Australia, alongside a medley of fine local talent derived from the likes of Smuggler Marine, Tectrax, Dickey Boats and The Yacht Collective. Set to deliver a completely unparalleled experience, this is New Zealand’s only event where guests can witness the vessels both on and off the water.

So whether you are hoping to invest joint ownership of a luxury vessel, treat yourself to a new watersport toy, catch up on equipment releases or merely take a look at how the other half lives when sea-bound, you can rest assured that the Auckland On Water Boat Show has everything to entertain any and all. While tickets are available on the door, those eager few who purchase early bird tickets online will go into the draw to win part of a huge prize pool — ensuring that the summer boating season really kicks off with a bang.
