The 2017 Brisbane Boat Show in Queensland, Australia is returning to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in South Bank on Friday when it opens for a three-day run.

Trailer boats are the show’s core attraction, although associated items such as electronics, safety equipment, fishing gear and more will also be featured.

This year's event will also host a stage with fishing master classes by well-known experts Tim Simpson, Paul and Doug Burt, Laurie Mcenally, Steve Morgan and Greg Vinall.

Also speaking at the event will be Michelle Lee and her mentor Andrew Abrahams. Abrahams successfully crossed the Atlantic in a rowing boat and is mentoring Lee to embark on the same journey. She will be the first Australian woman to make the attempt.

Other highlights of the show will include a pool area with kayak and SUP demonstrations, bumper boats for children, Geoff the Boating Guy with tips on how kids can get onto the water, and a boating safety zone.

The 2017 Brisbane Boat Show runs from August 25-27 and is owned and operated by the Boating Industry Association of Australia.
