South Australia's most comprehensive boating show, open from the 28th to the 30th of June at the Adelaide Convention Centre, is attracting the state's most recognised and respected boating suppliers and retailers and they are bringing with them Boat Show Deals to match. Whether you love the inland waterways of South Australia or prefer the open waters off the coast, exhibitors at the Adelaide Boat Show promise everything for the avid boatie and for every budget.

The team at SeaTrail SA have promised a remarkable deal which includes a vessel, engine and trailer, all for just $4,990. This small boat package is a great starter for anyone who wants to take advantage of a truly affordable opportunity to spend more time on the water, and perhaps enjoy the marvellous pastime of fishing on the weekend or a lucky day off work. Made up of a Seacraft Skipper 330 Dinghy, paired with a Tohatsu 9.8 horsepower 2 stroke engine, all teamed with one of SeaTrail's own Café 12 trailers, the package represents significant value and is sure to be popular at the Show. This is the type of offer that gives South Australians every reason to head out onto the water as often as they can, for as long as they can, enjoying the lifestyle that only boating can provide.

Sole agents for Quintrex, Cruise Craft and Adelaide's largest Yamaha dealer will also be at the show, as Yamaha Pitmans Marine live up to their motto of "Where Dreams Come True''. Presenting Boat Show Deals through the event, this is the place to see the new Yellowfin Plate Aluminium boats, each handcrafted over 150 hours, using the highest quality utensils and workmanship, producing legendary offshore boats with superior layout, design, hull performance, quality and price. Also on their stand, the new Quintrex Apex Hull boats which offer unsurpassed market-leading versatility and performance. The ground-breaking Apex Hull creates a wider, sweeping chine, designed to improve rough water performance, and increased stability and grip when cornering. Not to be missed on their stand as well is the new Cruise Craft model designation, building on the successful hull geometry pioneered with their earlier models. Perfect for fishing, these latest Cruise Craft line-ups establish a new benchmark in Australian boating.

Of particular interest at the show is Johnson Pump's interactive display in the shape of a fly-bridge cruiser that can reproduce noises and problems found within live bait tank installations, domestic pressure pumps and wash down pumps on private and commercial boats. It's a great way to observe problems and discover solutions for boat owners and technicians. Further operating demonstrations include modern low noise and low power consumption Johnson Pump grey & black water systems. There's also great information to be found at the stand about digital bilge pump activity counters and live bait tank installation.

Adult entry tickets to the show are $10, with children 6-17 years of age $5. Kids 5 years old and younger are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. To purchase tickets online, visit and click on the orange 'Buy Tickets' button. Fill in the payment details and the tickets are subsequently sent to your email address.
