Trailer boats, watersports and inflatable craft will have a prominent presence at SIBS 2022 with the likes of Insinc Marine, TR Marine, Hunts Marine, GME Marine, Waves Overseas, Sirocco Marine, GRE Marine, Hobie and Whitewater Sports Marine on board.

The latest engines, marine technology, gear and gadgets from Volvo Penta, Mercury Marine, FLIR Maritime, Garmin, Raymarine, Stella Systems, Dometic, Boating & RV, Navico and GME will also be on display.

The 53rd SIBS event is being presented in a new partnership between the Boating Industry Association (BIA) and Mulpha Events, owner-operator of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, at Darling Harbour.

BIA vice-president Andrew Fielding said SIBS 2022 is shaping up to appeal to both seasoned sailors and fun-loving families alike.

“Following on from the record level of interest in boating as a leisure activity across Australia, we are delighted to see the wave of interest in SIBS 2022 with many of the industry’s top brands and businesses already on board for this year’s event,” Fielding says. “We look forward to delivering a world-class boat show with widespread appeal at the iconic Darling Harbour site and showcase our exhibitors, partners and the wider marine industry to an enthusiastic audience.”

Insinc Marine owner Troy Durham adds he is looking forward to the return of SIBS, where the dealer will debut the brand-new, Australian-made Baysport 700 Sports Half Cabin as well as the latest vessels in the fibreglass offshore cabin boat range.

“After two years, people will be eager to see all the new innovations and we are looking forward to showcasing our latest products and services to new potential customers,” he says.
