The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boatshow

The Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show is on again this May at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland.  The largest and most popular boat show in New Zealand, this is an iconic annual event for many Auckland (and North Island) boaties.  Now in it's 61st year, yes you did read that correctly, 61st year, it is by far New Zealand's longest-running boat show!

The show features the widest range of new boats, engines, electronics and marine accessories in the country and is a fun show for the whole family.  Interactivity is the key for 2018 we are told, and giving the show a 'new look', so even if you've been before - you can expect something new to discover in 2018.
