Exhibitors are lining up to show their world-beating new products and launches at this year’s Auckland On Water Boat Show. Sail coatings that are unscratchable, and a new custom-built sedan boat which is the epitome of Kiwi quality are just some of the show features to watch out for.

With the approach of the Auckland On Water Boat Show in September, exhibitors are once again shaping up to show the world why southern hemisphere marine companies are world-leaders.

New Plymouth-based, Marine Shield will be on-hand at the show to display their innovative Marine Shield 105 and 110 series. The two paint coating systems have been designed to protect marine investments against harsh conditions; and with certified applicators globally, the technology is available in marine hubs around the world. Marine Shield’s 105 series is particularly useful for Mediterranean red rain, protecting sails from staining.

Marine Shield’s 105 series will protect yacht sails against UV, mildew, algae, mould and fungi, and chemical damage and comes in a huge range of colours. Marine series 110 is a flexible paint coating system designed specifically for the protection of ribs from UV damage, chemical spills, chaffing and fish fin penetration, and also comes in a broad range of colours. Both series can be customised to match the yacht or tender colour exactly, and the team will be at the boat show, challenging visitors to do their worst to scratch Marine Shield-coated products.

Newly-launched Odysseia is a striking 12.2-metre sedan which forms a beautiful example of the craftsmanship and innovation present across New Zealand’s boat building industry. Created by hand with a dedicated master craftsman leading a specialist team, the custom-built compare price-wise with imported and production boats, with a quality standard that’s second-to-none. Odysseia’s builder, Scott Lane Boat Builders is a family-owned company with a tight knit team who oversee every part of the build from scratch in-house; meaning no moulds are used.

It’s an approach which ensures New Zealand-designed and built boats that display that impeccable Kiwi quality. 'Odysseia is an entry level launch with a difference. We offer a bespoke, custom service, creating elite sedans with an exquisite finish, generous and comfortable cabins, and large windows,' says Letitia Lane of Scott Lane Boat Builders.

Odysseia will be on display for visitors to explore at the show, and the Scott Lane team hasher sister ship already under construction at their Papakura workshop.

Multihull Solutions will be showcasing the brand new model of the Summerland 40 Long Range power catamaran, and the Fountaine Pajot Lipari 40 sailing catamaran, both by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts. The range of the Summerland 40 is what really sets it apart, and that, packaged with its fuel efficiency and incredible space, stability and beachability, makes it a game-changer.

Multihull Solutions is unique in that it has sales centres across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific Islands, and has a breadth of brands which means it can offer unbiased choice and advice to buyers. The company will not only bring its own experiences personnel to the show, but representatives of all its brands including Catana, Sunreef, TAG Yachts, Privilége Catamarans and NEEL Trimarans to ensure show visitors are offered the most comprehensive information about the models which take their interest.

The Auckland On Water Boat Show takes place from the 25 to the 28 September in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour and is New Zealand’s largest on-water boat show. The show provides the best of the best of local industry to showcase innovation, new developments to local recreational boaters, and to the wider marine sector.
