Boating World will again have a stand on-the-water at the Cape Town International Boat Show 2012 at the V&A waterfront – featuring luxurious models from their imported Riviera Sport Fisher and Fairline cruiser ranges as well their unique boat lift system and a fabulous sporty craft for speedsters.

Come and meet Derrick Levy and the Boating World team who will be delighted to welcome you aboard, show you around and get you up-to-speed on these and the many other boats available in their comprehensive stable.

Look out for the Riviera 43 Offshore Express –not only is she a beautiful cruiser with all the  mod cons but she’s every inch a game fisherman’s dream - with a huge cockpit, lee outriggers, rod holders, live-bait tank, moulded toe kicks and much more. Powered by twin Volvo IPs 600 – D6 Diesels with IPS - this 49, 4’ hard-top model is perfectly suited for long-distance travel along our harsh coastline. She easily accommodates five people overnighting.

On display you’ll also find the stylishly elegant 12.13m Fairline Targa 38 sport cruiser which offers the perfect escape from the pressures of life – available at a value for quality investment! 

She’s got the look for luxurious marinas around the country and her Volvo Penta D6-370 EVC diesel gives all the “vooma” for all forms of water sport from waterskiing, wakeboarding to simply cruising and even a spot of fishing. Her open-plan cockpit with luxurious wrap-around seating is ideal for entertaining. Two cabins comfortably sleep four to six people.

The stunning command bridge Fairline Squadron 42 will take your breath away! She’s like a sports car on water - stylishly streamlined yet spacious and she’s packed for action with explosive power from two Volvo Penta D6 370HP motors.

She spacious enough for 11 people on day trips with a huge cockpit, saloon and flybridge – which by the way, is the perfect place for entertaining. There is an option available for easy access to the concealed, cantilevered tender launching system for the Williams 285 Jet RIB. She comfortably sleeps 4 – 6 people. 

And if you’re looking for sporty fun for only R390 000 this sexy Formula Fastech will be right up your street. This high-performance sportster for speedlovers is fitted with a powerful Mercruiser 525HP EFI Bravo V8, has a great sound system, swim platform, transom shower, a 2 sleeper cuddy cabin in the bow and can seat six.

Also look out for the revolutionary Air-berth Boat Lift system - this versatile, non-corrosive storage system is the easiest way to store your boat next to a jetty or even in open water. Live demonstrations will take place at their stand every day.

Don’t miss this show which will be action-packed with spectacular power boats and sailing yachts both on the water at the V & A waterfront and at the Cape Town ICC. There’ll be interesting talks and demos all weekend and prizes to be won.

The show starts daily at 10am and closes at 6pm (Friday and Saturday) and 10am to 5pm Sunday 14th. Adults pay R80 a ticket (inclusive of transport and entry to Boat Show related events) - children are free.
