The Sydney International Boat Show has wrapped up the five-day showcase that attracted hundreds of thousands of local and international guests.
Described as the Southern Hemisphere’s most comprehensive recreational marine exhibition, some of the world’s most luxurious yachts lined Darling Harbour including those of Azimut, Riviera and Sunseeker.
Here are some of the highlights from the annual affair, which ran from 1–5 August 2019.
Described as being world leaders in marine design, the Ferretti Group showcased its stylish and elegant fleet at The Sydney International Boat Show.
More than 60,000 attendees viewed five of Ferretti’s spectacular yachts; Itama 45S, Ferretti Yachts 450, Ferretti Yachts 550, Ferretti Yachts 850, and the Australian premiere of the Riva 88’ Domino Super.
The Group presented a breathtaking exhibit in collaboration with Ray White Marine, who recently opened its newest showroom in Melbourne, Australia.
For the first time in Australian waters, Eyachts debuted the Greenline NEO Coupe at the annual show.
The unique design hosts 3.3 metres of internal space, can hold 350kg, has seating for up to 12 guests and boasts a high/low platform by J&J brothers made specifically for this model.
The Greenline Neo Hard Top, Greenline 39, 28 Cabin, 37 Sports Cabin and the Axopar x Brabus range featuring the Axopar 28 T-Top and 37 Sun Top x Brabus were also exhibited.
One of Australia’s leading motor yacht manufacturers launched its specialised custom branch of the company at the annual show.
Meanwhile, the X50 (part of the revolutionary X series of sports yachts) took prime position at Maritimo’s display at The Sydney International Boat Show.
“This builds on the phenomenal response to the X60, which drew international acclaim in 2018 as one of the most exciting advances in the sport yacht sector thanks to the model’s innovative design features,” Maritimo lead designer Tom Barry-Cotter says.
Ribco celebrated its first anniversary of its Australian debut at the Boat Show.
It showcased the SailGP Team Australia special edition Ribco R28 and VIP flagship Ribco Venom 44 at the city marina.
