Sydney International Boat Show 2015 – It’s a Wrap!


We’ll it’s about now the marine industry takes a long breath after finding our heads again following another hugely successful Sydney International Boat Show. Team Windcraft, together with YOTI, exhibited 13 boats; including five Hanses, two Moody Deck Saloons, one Solaris, two brand new Sealine and one brand new Axopar – the later both powerboats.

Visitor numbers were very strong and the weather certainly was on our side with clear skies and temperatures hitting the mid 20’s – perfect.

One of our favourite aspects of the Sydney Show is that it marks the beginning of the upcoming sailing season. Crews were already on their way north in the Sydney to Southport yacht race and others were being delivered up the coast to be part of both Airlie and Hamilton Island Race Weeks. A dry and sunny Sydney August has again pushed this further and there certainly is a feel of Spring in the air.

We wish our friends competing in all current events fair winds and merry times – think of us back in the office – and we look forward to seeing all your happy faces at next year’s Sydney Boat Show.
