Reactions from the 2016 Sydney Boat Show

Posted July 30 2016

The Sydney Boat Show took centre stage in Sydney this weekend as thousands of eager boaties poured into Darling Harbour to check out the latest and greatest boats, electronics, equipment, and more.

The Deckee team noticed an air of anticipation amongst attendees and industry folk with plenty of talk and excitement stirring for the 50th anniversary of the Sydney Boat Show next year.

As we sat down on Sunday afternoon to reflect on all that happened over the weekend, we thought the best way to share the atmosphere with you was to bring together a collection of photos from all the businesses and boat owners that were right there in the thick of it!

Sunny skies and a steady crowd. Sydney turns it on for Day 1 of the @sydneyboatshow
