The Southern Hemisphere's biggest boat show, opens from the 1st to the 5th 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.

Riviera will premiere four world-class models at the 2019 Sydney International Boat Show as part of an exceptional nine-boat display. In the spotlight will be the new Riviera 545 SUV, boasting a full-beam master suite offering space and comfort that Rivieria is famous for. This yacht shares the bluewater hull, open cockpit and accommodation plan of Riviera's newly launched 54 Enclosed Flybridge vessel along with a free-flowing saloon that's tailor-made for entertaining. Joining the four premiere models at the show is the 68 Sports Motor Yacht, 445 SUV, 43 Open Flybridge and 395 SUV and 39 Sports Motor Yacht. "Boating enthusiasts come from all over Australia, and many parts of the world, to witness our Sydney International Boat Show display and I believe they will be more impressed than ever this year," Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst said. "I would say the current range of yachts is the most refined that Riviera has ever created. Our 600-strong team strives every day to ensure that Riviera yachts are built as exceptionally as they look."

Yellowfin Plate are featuring a number of hand-built boats at the show, all constructed in their specialised plate factory by 17 of Australia's most skilled builders. In all, Yellowfin Plate present a most comprehensive range with 27 models to suit the specific needs of serious fisherman. At the show there will be the all new Folding Hard Top and Centre Cab as well as the popular Southerner Hard Top. "Yellowfin Plate has raised the bar and stepped up to the plate" said Drew Jackson, Yellowfin Plate Account Manager. "We have worked over the past months to select the perfect range of boats to show NSW boaties at the Sydney International Boat Show."
