Get Onboard Boat Expo will showcase the many ways that you can experience affordable and convenient boating in Brisbane.

When: Friday 14th June 12pm – 6pm and Saturday June 15th – 10am to 2pm

Where: Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron

The big boat shows are fantastic events for seeing many shiny things we can’t afford. When reality sets in, and we want to get serious about getting on the water sooner rather than later, the Get Onboard Boat Expo comes to the rescue.

Whether you share a boat, join a club or purchase your own boat, the expo provides you with all the different pathways into boating from novice to the experienced salty seadog.  Getting the boat is just one part of the picture, you need to get a licence and actually know how to boat.  Get Onboard Boat Expo also brings you licence, sailing and boat training providers which can teach you how to boat safely and get the most out of your time on the water.

If you have considered getting into boating and not sure where to start, the Boat Expo will provide the opportunity to learn more and spend time without the rush of a big boat show. This gives you the comfort to get to know the boats and the people who will support your boating adventures.

Vessels on Display

A range of vessels will be on display to suit all tastes and budgets, including;

  • Dufour 37
  • Beneteau Oceanis 45
  • Jeanneau Sunfast 3300

and more!


In addition to the boats, there will be information booths and displays from boat trainers and boating accessories, including;

  • ABC Boating College

Come and see the boats and the water toys in a relaxed environment and enjoy the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron’s hospitality at its best.
