Returning to our waters this month is the highly-anticipated Auckland Boat Show — the epitome of luxury boat events for discerning buyers and marine enthusiasts that brings an unparalleled display of the world’s most prestigious yachts to our shores. This year, the show boasts an extensive collection of innovative marine launches and new releases, including the most comprehensive collection of Princess Yachts ever showcased in Auckland.
Sports Marine will present a collection of models by the the esteemed British luxury yacht manufacturer, which will be making their New Zealand debut. Princess Yachts’ V55, V65, V40 and F55 are a true testament to marque’s unwavering commitment to excellence in design and craftsmanship.
In addition to Sport’s Marine’s presentation of Princess Yachts, the show will feature Horizon Yacht’s E75, R Marine Flagship’s Riviera Yachts and Crownline Boats, amongst a wide range of other brands. These luxurious yachts have been specifically chosen for their exceptional quality and design, ensuring visitors have a truly unforgettable experience. On shore, guests will discover Aston Martin’s DBX707, the world’s fastest and arguably most beautiful SUV, as the perfect pairing with Crownline Boats.

Sea trials will also be available for visitors, offering the unique opportunity to test boats on the water before purchasing. This hands-on experience gives visitors a feel for the vessels, their capabilities and overall performance. It is a unique addition to a boat show, making the Auckland Boat Show a standout event in the industry, with the sea trials a surefire way to show off the prowess of these impressive machines in their element.
For those interested in shared boating options, the Auckland Boat Show will also feature a range of options to suit every need. Whether you’re looking to purchase a boat with a group of friends or enjoy the experience of being on the water with like-minded individuals, the show’s organisers have something for everyone. Shared boating options have revolutionised the boating world in recent years, offering a plethora of styles and experiences to suit every kind of boater. From easy-to-book monthly subscriptions to ultra-luxe ownership, these options cater to a wide range of boat users with lower investment, maintenance and commitment than traditional boat ownership.

For those new to boating, who have limited space at home, or who can’t make it out on the water as often as they’d like, shared boating options are the perfect solution.
