Barry 2019-02-15

An impressive new 20-metre diameter round pool is set to be a highlight of the 2019 Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on May 16-19. 

The pool, which has been designed and constructed especially for the show, will feature a range of activities and demonstrations. It will also offer members of the public the opportunity to “have a go” at stand-up paddle boarding, under expert instruction.

“The new Hutchwilco Pool will give us the chance to showcase a number of fun sports and activities in a safe and supportive environment.” says Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show general manager, Dave Gibbs. “The pool, which is 800mm deep, will be continually patrolled and all those taking part will be required to wear a Hutchwilco lifejacket.”

The show, New Zealand’s largest, longest-running and most popular boat show, is also offering those attending the chance to win the largest prize ever offered at a boat show. All those who buy an admission ticket to the show, either online or at the gates will be able to enter the draw for this amazing Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize.

Worth a staggering $250,000, the Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize consists of a 7.5 Surtees Open Cabin Game Fisher, powered by twin 150hp four-stroke Yamaha engines. It will also feature the first Yamaha Helm Master boat control system to be fitted to a boat in New Zealand, will sit on a top-of-the-line Hosking double-axle braked trailer and be fitted with a comprehensive set of Garmin electronics.

The show organisers have also introduced a big incentive for those who buy their tickets on line. Every ticket bought on line will also receive a second, bonus entry into the Surtees/Yamaha Grand Prize draw! In addition to doubling their chances of winning this incredible quarter of a million dollar prize, those who buy tickets on line will also automatically go into the draw to win a Viking Kayaks Powered Reload Package, worth over $8000.

Both online and at-the-gate tickets are just $20 each and the online tickets can be downloaded from and printed at home at no extra cost.
