Due to the outbreak of the pandemic COVID-19 it will not be possible to hold Hutchwilco NZ Boat Show this year, the first time it has been cancelled since its inception in 1956.

On April 15 the show’s owners announced refunds of exhibitors’ deposits and of any public entry tickets bought on-line. The details will be announced shortly.

The show’s owners and organisers are acutely aware of the hardship and uncertainty experienced by the marine industry and New Zealanders everywhere at this time.

They apologise to exhibitors, for whom the show has always been an important marketing tool, and of course to the public, who support the show in tens of thousands every year. 

To their loyal sponsors, contractors and suppliers, they wish to convey their deepest thanks for their loyal support through these tough times.

Finally, the organisers wish to assure the industry and New Zealand public that the Hutchwilco NZ Boat Show will return. Their team is already working towards creating an even bigger and better show for 2021.


They look forward to seeing you next May, 13-16, at the 2021 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show.
