A festival on the water will see central Auckland marinas fill with new release boats

Motoryachts, sailing yachts, RIBs, trailer boats and amphibious vessels are making their way to Auckland for New Zealand’s largest on-water boat show.

March 2024 will see central Auckland fill with boats as the Auckland Boat Show gets underway on March 14 2024. A key feature of the inaugural Moana Auckland festival, the show attracts annual new launches from within New Zealand and across the globe.

This year’s new releases include the New Zealand debut of Italian yacht brand, Sessa Marine, Haines Hunter’s presentation of its recent SP635 release, the debut of three new Princess Yachts models, the New Zealand debut of Finnish all-season boat Sargo, and the unveiling of a new-to-the-market Beneteau boat syndication opportunity, among other new launches.

Also available to view for the first time at the Auckland Boat Show will be high-performance amphibious technology created by New Zealand company Anura. Building modular systems designed to be fitted to a range of hull materials, the company engineers amphibious technology to work for recreational vessels, as well as commercial applications.

Engine heavyweight, Scania will be on show with South Pacific Diesel Systems, presenting leading Swedish technology as part of the show’s repaint, re-power, and repair exhibitor displays. With a wide selection of exhibitors displaying the latest innovation across paint, anti-foul, power, and marine accessories, the show has become a hub for both commercial and recreational marine consumers to discover innovative products to keep their vessel performing at its peak.

The dates of the 2024 show which runs from 14-17th March, have been set to form part of a plethora of on-water activities during summer for the first edition of Auckland’s Moana Festival. Supported by Tataki Auckland Unlimited, the festival not only includes the boat show, but 14 other events which celebrate the ocean including a range of regattas and the New Zealand Millennium Cup superyacht regatta, the inaugural Auckland Wooden Boat Festival, the World Manu Champs, Perpetual Guardi-an’s Sculpture on the Gulf and many more.

The Auckland Boat Show brings festival goers in contact with New Zealand’s, and the international marine industry. Known for its unique sea trial area; the only one of its kind in a New Zealand boat show, it presents attendees with the chance to experience how vessels perform on the water, getting them up close and personal with manufacturers and dealers. It presents the largest collection of ves-sels on the water available to view in New Zealand, acting as a one-stop shop for the industry to gather with its audience.

On land, exhibitors include a range of brands across the industry, including engines, commercial, electrical and paint and antifoul.

Tickets are on sale from 5th December.
