Inaugural Sydney show a success


The inaugural Sydney Superyacht Show held at Sydney Superyacht Marina was considered a success by the organizers and has scheduled next year’s dates for the second show.

“The show is not mainstream, and is essentially invite-only, based on broker leads,” said organiser Richard Morris of Australian Superyachts. “We are purposely aiming for the top five percent rather than the general public targeted sector the Sydney Boat Show goes for; we want hundreds of visitors here, not thousands.”

Featured brokers included Australian Superyachts, Geoff Lovett International, Fraser Yachts, Ray White Marine, Sunseeker Select, Marlow Explorer and Chapman.

“The huge success of the show was reflected in the sale of two yachts concluded and with several under serious offer and one even sold just days prior to the show,” said co-organiser Peter Lovett from Geoff Lovett International. “The calibre of the superyachts on display was extremely impressive with an estimated combined value of over 40 million, setting the bar high for the first show.”

“Our $30 million redevelopment of the Superyacht Marina due to be completed over the next few years will provide an expanded venue and facilities to enable the Sydney Superyacht Show to grow into the world class event that it deserves to become,”

said Justin James, CEO of Sydney Superyacht Marina.

“Have had three firm written offers submitted to yacht owners and are currently undergoing sea-trials in order to finalise the purchase process – a brilliant achievement for a three day event,” Brock Rodwell from Ray White Marine said.

“The show was the perfect platform to meet new and existing clients,” Director and recruiter for Australian Superyacht Crew International, Donna Morris said. “It also proved to be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the bespoke services we provide to the types of clients who attended the show.” Morris also launched Australian Elite Domestic Staff.

The 2015 Sydney Superyacht Show will be extended to run over four days next year from July 30 to August 2.
