Brisbane Boat Show attracts diverse Exhibitors. 23 -25 August


Brisbane Boat Show attracts a range of Exhibitors 23rd-25th August

Queensland’s most comprehensive recreational marine event opens from the 23rd to the 25th of August at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre South Bank, and is attracting the world’s most recognised and respected boating manufacturers, suppliers and retailers. Whether you love the inland waterways of Queensland or prefer the open waters off the coast, exhibitors at the Brisbane Boat Show promise everything for the boating enthusiast.

Presenting one of the fastest growing on-water pastimes, Brisbane SeeDoo and Can-Am will have the full range of SeaDoo personal watercraft (PWC) on display including the SeaDoo FishPro which is the new edition to the SeaDoo line up this year. While SeaDoo has a huge range of accessories to customise all models, nothing beats matching your PWC with the new Can-Am Maverick X3 or the new Can-Am Ryker 3 wheeled motorcycle, also on display at the show. Brisbane SeeDoo and Can-Am promise plenty of special prices and generous factory warranties. 

A show favourite, Tacklebusters return to the Brisbane Boat Show with superb deals on all their rod, reel and tackle gear. Rows and rows of fishing equipment, accessories and gadgets will satisfy the fussiest of anglers, and thrill those who love finding all their fishing bits and pieces in the one place. Known for some of the best prices around, Tacklebusters always draw a crowd and certainly live-up to their name. 

This year at the Brisbane Boat Show, Northside Marine will be bringing along Whittley, Surtees, Stabicraft, Malibu & Axis, Stacer and Sportsman Boats. Highlights include the brand-new Stabicraft 2250 Centrecab and the Whittley SL22 Coast Tourer Edition. This is similar to the SL22SD, but with the ease of maintenance thanks to the outboard instead of a sterndrive. Northside Marine also have the new Minn Kota trolling motor on display, which has an 87-inch shaft. This provides 112 pounds of thrust, perfect for the larger saltwater boats that need a bit of extra power to assist in positioning.

With almost 5 million people enjoying our waterways each year in Australia, the Show includes plenty of other education and entertainment as well. Fishing masterclasses and on water equipment demonstrations are just a few of the many activities included with the entry ticket.

The show is open each day from 10AM. Adult tickets are $15. Concessions are available for families, kids and seniors, with individual entry just $5 after 5PM. Up to date details available at
