Auckland Boat Show 2020 – CANCELLED

Date of event: October 8, 2020

Locale: Viaduct Harbour, Auckland

Statement From Organisers (September 2020):

After research we believe it is not possible to run the show with crowd restrictions of 500 people or less and we still do not know what restrictions Auckland will be in on the week of the show.   We have looked at all options including postponing the show to later this year or early next year, but the current footprint for the show is not available. 

Considering all factors, the Board of Management at their meeting today made the decision to cancel the Auckland Boat Show 8-11 October 2020.


The award-winning MY 40 power catamaran by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts will have its New Zealand premiere at the 2020 Auckland Boat Show.

Come on down and see this impressive powerhouse, which will be showcased alongside the popular Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 sailing catamaran, at Viaduct Harbour from 8 – 11 October.

The MY 40 won the category of Best Multihull Motor Yachts (up to 50 ft) at the 2019 Asia Boating Awards and continues to enjoy strong worldwide sales due to its outstanding performance, fuel efficiency and voluminous living areas.

The Lucia 40 sailing catamaran delivers outstanding handling, stability and comfort, and its sleek lines and stylish interior design have made it one of the most successful catamarans in the shipyard’s range.

Fountaine Pajot has just announced the Lucia 40 will be replaced by the exciting new Isla 40 in early 2021, which promises to reflect the hallmarks of the shipyard’s prestigious Flagship range and will be significantly larger than its predecessor.

Over 22 years, the Auckland Boat Show has evolved to become a comprehensive representation of New Zealand’s marine market. From its beginnings in 1998, the show has grown to take in the commercial sector, fishing seminars, trailer boats and a host of other vessels and accessories while retaining its status as New Zealand’s largest boat show.

Now with a new format and venue at the The Cloud and Viaduct Marina!

Date:  8 – 11 October 2020

Times: 10am – 6pm Thursday to Saturday, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

Venue: The Cloud & Viaduct Harbour

Perfectly timed to coincide with daylight savings and school holidays, Auckland Boat Show is the only boating expo in New Zealand where visitors can experience such a wide range of vessels on and off the water and in 2020 entry to the marina display is FREE!
