New Zealand’s largest and longest-running boat show, the Hutchwilco New Zealand Boat Show, is back. Showcasing the latest boats, engines, electronics, accessories, fishing and dive gear, the event will take place 12-15 May 2022 at Auckland Showgrounds. With kids 16 years and under attending for free, the event offers something for boat lovers of all ages and promises to be a fun family day out. This year’s show will feature the ‘Fishing & Adventure’ Kids Club, a new, unique, kid-friendly experience hosted by Scott Parry and Mig Rumney from the popular ‘Fishing & Adventure’ TV series that screens on TVNZ One. Kids can meet Scott and Mig, learn about the joys of fishing and spin the new ‘Fishing & Adventure’ Prize Wheel. Another major drawcard of the show is the impressive grand prize giveaway, with every ticket purchased going into the draw to win a Surtees 750 Game Fisher powered by Yamaha.
