There is a change on the horizon and the 47th Sydney International Boat Show will be like no other.
While the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre undergoes a major upgrade over the next three years, the Sydney International Boat Show will move its undercover exhibits to the interim facility that has been specially built at the historic working port known as Glebe Island.
The new Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island is a fully functioning exhibition facility designed to accommodate world class exhibitions.
The spectacular Cockle Bay Marina, always a show highlight, remains on its traditional site in Darling Harbour. 

We will be there looking at all the snazzy boats as guests of the lovely d’Albora marinas. I had the pleasure of visiting their Spit Bridge marina a few weeks ago to see how they do things and also what cool boats they look after. Read all about it here.
