The world’s finest boats come to Middle Harbour

by Harbourside Media on 11 Jul 2011
Fergusons Boatshed(foreground) is home to many of the larger models in Sea Ray range. . .
There’ll be nothing middle-of-the-road about the boats on display at the Middle Harbour Boat Show. Over the weekend of July 23-24th, some of the finest boats in the world from 15 – 75 feet, both power and sail, will be on display in our own back yard.

With craft from the USA, Europe, Asia and the cream of Australian manufacturers, over $50million worth of boats will be on display, accompanied by a full complement of support services including finance and insurance. There’ll even be a fishing clinic for the kids and a sausage sizzle all weekend and ladies driving lessons both days between 11.am and 3.00pm.

While the show will be running just a week before the Sydney show, the major appeal will be the relaxed atmosphere at Middle Harbour without the crowds. There’ll be the chance to see the pick of what will be on display the following week - definitely a case of quality over quantity.

Power boat brands will include from SBM, Maritimo & Mustang, from Andrew Short Marine, Searay & Boston Whaler, from Ensign Ship Brokers, Bavaria and from Matthew Willett Marine, Clipper Cruisers and Jeanneau. A collection of sail boats wil also be on display from Yoti including Hanse, Moody and Dehler – they all will have their latest models on show.

On Board Marine Services, Boating Syndication Australia, Smiths Boat Shed, Ferguson’s Boat Shed and SBM Premium Service will also be participating, along with Club Marine Insurance. All the crew from the various dealerships will be on hand to answer questions, conduct on board inspections and arrange for on water tests for the following week or weekend.

The show will offer the chance for families, enthusiasts alike to see what’s happening in luxury boating, and we’ll see how far the Australian manufacturers have come when pitted alongside their international rivals. Entry is free and the show will be open 9am – 5pm both days, on the marina on the eastern side of the Spit Bridge at Smith’s Boat Shed and Ferguson’s Marina, The Spit, Mosman.
