Yanmar release new 30 MHP
Engine and Saildrive SD25
The Sydney International Boat Show
will provide the platform for the Australian
launch of two new products from Yanmar.
Unveiled for the first time will be the Yanmar
3YM30AE marine diesel engine plus the
Yanmar Saildrive SD25.
The Yanmar 3YM30AE supersedes the
highly successful and market leading Yanmar
3YM30 model. The latest offering complies
with the current USA emission EPA Tier 3
regulations. Apart from being a ‘cleaner’
marine engine, the Yanmar 3YM30AE features
a larger displacement, higher torque, lower
rated rpm level and a 125 amp alternator with
a new belt system.
The new Yanmar Saildrive SD25 has
exactly the same outline and dimensions
as the Saildrive SD20. The new model is
identified by a light grey, non metallic paint on
the leg, while the head remains Yanmar grey
metallic. A hard anodizing process delivers
significant increase in corrosion resistance.
Yanmar – Cockle Bay Marina Darling
The Sydney International Boat Show (SIBS)
is more than just a ‘shop window’ for
the boating industry; it has become a
vital entertainment component on the annual
events calendar for the harbour city and lays
claim to being a world-renowned exhibition of
Owned and organised by the Boating
Industry Association (BIA), the first boat show
was held in 1968 and is on track to be celebrating
its 50th edition in 2017. The Sydney Show is
co-located between the Sydney Exhibition
Centre @ Glebe Island and Cockle Bay Marina
in Darling Harbour.
A member of the prestigious International
Federation of Boat Show Organisers (IFBSO),
it has rightly won a reputation on the world
stage as one of the leading recreational boating
It regularly attracts in excess of 250
exhibitors and it has often drawn more than
60,000 visitors per show and boasts a record
crowd of 93,501 back in 2004. The show is
widely acknowledged as the largest and
most important leisure boat exhibition in the
While the five halls of the Sydney Exhibition
Centre are packed with many millions of dollars
worth of boats, engines, electronics, assorted
boating accessories and equipment, SIBS is
also well known for its spectacular array of
beautiful big boats on the floating marina in
The importance of the show to the marine
industry worldwide can be seen in the large
number of international visitors it attracts.
Industry leaders, trade delegations and boat
and equipment manufacturers from the United
States, United Kingdom, New Zealand, China,
France, Malaysia, Germany, Taiwan, South
Africa, Thailand, Belgium and Singapore can
be seen mingling with the crowds.
One such industry leader, Steve Heese,
President of legendary US boat manufacturer
Chris-Craft, has described Sydney as his
“ favourite show”.
Domenic Genua, Marketing and Event
Manager for the BIA describes the exhibition’s
“Our overall aim is to deliver an exhibition
of recreational boating for all who have any
interest in this wonderful lifestyle. We want
them to regard the show as an event that simply
must be visited”.
According to Mr Genua, SIBS contributes
10 percent to the industry’s national annual
“ The Sydney International Boat Show is
a genuine focal point for the industry, where
businesses come together to plan their future
activities. For that reason alone, the sheer
importance of the Show can never be overlooked
The Boat Show is designed around visitors’
wishes, delivering an event packed full of
education, entertainment, knowledge and to
top it off, a touch of inspiration.
After almost a year’s absence, historic boats
will feature heavily in this year’s show which
is sure to please visitors. When Aussie race
boat collector and historian Dave Pagano put
together a collection of historic boats for the
Boat Show in 2009, no one was to know that
it would remain as one of the most popular
features to this day.
The collection will amaze visitors and will
include the 1972 Griffiths Cup winner Aggressor,
a restored 1960s Australian built unlimited
hydroplane, complete with a Rolls-Merlin V12
engine, like those that were used to power the
P51 fighter planes.
