2020 Auckland Boat Show has been cancelled due to crowd restriction levels in Auckland, the NZ Marine Industry Association announced on Sept 16.

New Zealand’s largest boat show was scheduled to run from 8 to 11 October, but with uncertainty on which restriction levels will be in force at that time, NZ Marine made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s show.

A meeting of exhibitors and organisers held Tuesday 15 September concluded that, due to uncertainty around changing Covid levels and a desire to ensure the safety of show patrons, cancellation was the best course of action.

The organisers know that the boating public will share their disappointment in not being able to see and experience the latest in technology, equipment and new boat and engine models on offer at the now-cancelled show. However, boaters can visit www.auckland-boatshow.com to view the latest boats and products from companies that were to exhibit.
