Sydney International Boat Show Exhibitors Add Finishing Touches

MEDIA RELEASE: For immediate release 30 July 2019

1 - 5 August, ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay Darling Harbour

The Southern Hemisphere’s biggest and most comprehensive recreational marine exhibition opens on Thursday at the ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay Darling Harbour, and exhibitors are adding final touches to their displays and offers.

Two years in design and 32 years in evolution, the
Stabicraft 2250 Centercab will debut at the 2019 Sydney International Boat Show. The 2250 range was born through social media feedback after the 2750 Centrecab gained popularity. Stabicraft boat owners wanted the function of a full walk-around, offering 360 degrees of fish fighting space on a scaled down hull, making it more affordable and manageable. “We have given the 2250 design its own purpose. Staunch, aggressive, sharp lines that scream adventure. Stabicraft has a history of taking functional concepts, like the buoyancy chambers, and giving them their own style. It’s by no means conventional, but certainly unique, aggressive and tough,” said Stabicraft CEO Paul Adams.

Sirocco Marine
will host the global launch of the BRIG 670 at the Show. It’s the next incarnation of the popular 650, with extra space and additional features. At 20ft, the Eagle 670 is an ocean-going, family all-rounder, powered by a single 225hp Honda outboard and capable of speeds up to 55 knots. With room for 14 passengers, it has a folding bimini for protection (or the option of a T-top), massive storage space, dining table and seating for nine people, Fusion stereo and shower. On display at this year's Show will be the entire range of BRIG RIBS – as many as 30 boats. 

Force Boats
present their new model, the F24XB at the Sydney International Boat Show. The new F24XB is a bow rider big enough to fit family and friends, with a U-Shaped stern lounge and bow lounge. It’s finished with a swim platform off the back including a folding ladder for easy boarding, a freshwater shower to wash yourself off after a day of skiing, the all-important ‘eksy,’ under seat storage and custom teak-look flooring. 

Visitors to the show are advised to consider purchasing tickets online to avoid queues, as more that 60,000 people are expected to attend this year. Up to date details regarding the show are available at
