The show, the largest recreational marine event in the southern hemisphere, is being held at the Cockle Bay Marina in Darling Harbour and the Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island.
“Over the last 20 years we have helped meet the diverse boating requirements in Australia through our wide range of craft, including our Silvercraft fishing boats and family cruisers, Oryx Sport Yachts and Cruisers, and our flagship brand Majesty Yachts,” says Gulf Craft CEO Erwin Bamps. “We are also noticing a steadily growing market for superyachts. People are beginning to realize that yachting is so much more than an ostentatious display of wealth – it is an experience, a lifestyle. In addition, there is increasingly more leisure time available globally, giving people an opportunity to experience the splendor of on-water living.”

Prospective superyacht buyers in the region look for semi-custom capability, quality and value for money as factors in their purchase.
“Increasingly, our clients are requiring their yachts to be personalized and to meet world-class standards that would enable them to cruise in Australian waters, thereby delivering an enhanced resale value as well as the possibility to widen their operation to charter use,” says Australian Superyachts Captain Richard Morris.
Established in 1999, Sydney-based Australian Superyachts, Gulf Craft exclusive Australian distributor, offers a complete range of services to the superyacht sector including Gulf Craft sales, superyacht management, charter central agency, crew placement and yacht agency.
Attendees of the Sydney International Boat Show can visit Gulf Craft at stand number 139 at the Cockle Marina Bay.
