The 2013 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show has been designed to cater for everyone, from those seriously looking to buy a new boat, motor or accessory to those simply curious about boating, fishing or diving.

The show not only features for every type of boating (including power boating and sailing, fishing, diving, water skiing and wake boarding), it also has plenty for those who would like to try boating for the first time or find out more about some aspect of boating that interests them.

The 470 in which Polly Powrie and Jo Aleh won their Olympic Gold medal last year will also be on display and visitors to Sailing Central will be able to hike off a Laser, try out a trapeze and meet representatives from Auckland’s leading yacht clubs.

Those keen on excitement will be able to enjoy a truly 'wicked' display of high-class wake boarding in the area in front of the historic grandstand. There will be several shows each day with a special 'fire high jump' demonstration during the show’s late night on Friday, May 17.

The popular Premier Boat Fair will feature a wide range of exhibitors’ top quality second hand boats for sale.

Those wanting to learn new boating or fishing skills, and those wanting to find out how to get into boating, will find everything they need in the Club Marine Discover Boating Centre. Here, in and around the large Hutchwilco Pool, expert fishers such as Milan and Nathan (from TV show PlaceMakers Big Angry Fish) and Hauraki Gulf fishing guru, Bruce Duncan, will share their tips on how to catch more and bigger fish, even in winter.
