David Lockwood previews the exciting line-up. Flash fleet . . . among the highlights at this year's show will be the Austrian-made Frauscher 717 GT (main) and the Italian-made Pershing 62 (above). ARRIVING IN STYLE O f all the dashing new launches coveting attention at this year's Sydney International Boat Show, the Italian-made Pershing 62 is the one to stop you in your tracks. Powered by twin 1623hp MTU diesel engines with Arneson surface drives, the Pershing is an uber-luxe rocket ship capable of hitting a top speed of 48 knots. That's fast. Then the anchor plonks, the massive rear glass bulkhead retracts and you meld with the chic designer interior. Keeping their powder -- and new boats -- dry, the world's leading boat builders have waited until now to unleash their new launches, long-range live- aboard boats and luxury motor yachts on the boating world Down Under. There's a lot to see in Darling Harbour. Take a tip: don the slip-on shoes, socks without holes and politely ask for a look. Among other highlights are the Austrian-made Frauscher 717 GT gentleman's racer with cool retro styling and optional hybrid power plant; the American Chris-Craft 28 day boat with throaty V8 preferred by Hollywood's who's-who; and the latest Australian-made Riviera 53 Enclosed Flybridge cruiser with triple Volvo Penta 435hp engines each with articulating pod drives linked to throttles and a joystick by fly-by-wire technology. French giant Jeanneau has its 2011 European Powerboat of the Year on show, a concept craft called the NC 11 that has been designed like an apartment on water. From Maine comes a cracking Sabre 40 lobster boat built with tradition, while the Greenline 33 from Slovenia with hybrid diesel- electric engine believes it represents motorboating's future. The British contingency always solicits oohs and ahhs from Sydney's cruising clique. The veritable Rolls Royces on sea from Princess, Sunseeker and Fairline boast more complimentary crystal glasses and fine china crockery than Harrods post-Christmas. Similarly, a Sydney boat show would not be complete these days without French marquee Beneteau. There's a new Swift Trawler 52 with a more upmarket feel. The new Swift Trawler 44 is an absolute beauty with two-speed economy. Speaking of which, Beneteau will have a Monte Carlo 47 with Flybridge, a brand-new Monte Carlo 42 and the new Flyer GT38 with Volvo Penta's new sterndrive systems that's said to be more sportscar than boat. Arguably, Australian stables do the practical side of pleasure boating best. Look for a range of reworked Maritimo cruisers, from 48 feet to 73 feet -- there will be 11 on show valued at more than $15 million -- built for cruising local waters but with more refined interiors courtesy of industrial designer David Stewart, who was responsible for the custom interior of vitamin king Marcus Blackmore's 76-footer. From the same boat builder, doyen Bill Barry- Cotter, comes a brace of mighty Mustangs starting from about $215,000 for the new entry-level 32. And with a new dry-stack boat storage amenity being built at White Bay before year's end, this 30-something sports cruiser market could get a much-needed shot in the arm. Australian boat builder Riviera will launch three new models headed by the 53 Flybridge -- in both forward- and rear-helm variants -- that encapsulates nearly two years of detailed consultation and design. A new 61 series II designed for high-speed offshore travel and a 4400 Sport Yacht Series II with pod drives will be part of a 13-boat Riviera display, with a retail value of $16 million. Meanwhile, Melbourne yard Caribbean will have the 40 Mark II with a larger flybridge, improved deck layout and some interior tweaks. A new local player, Coral Sea, is bringing its 55-foot long-range power catamaran down the coast from Queensland. These have been boom times for Asian boat builders selling timeless trawlers and passage- makers in American dollars to Australians. Simply, would-be buyers get more boat for their buck. As if to prove as much, the Alaska 46 features an oversized owner's stateroom, the 60 Pilothouse Yachtfisher offers more room for outdoor pursuits, while the Fleming 55 is a true trans-oceanic cruiser that knows no bounds. And everyone will warm to the teak decks and classic good looks of the Grand Banks 53 and 41. One to watch is the New Ocean 68 Flybridge built in Taiwan under the watchful eye of Keith Hanson, a powerboater who circumnavigated Australia in a Riviera 56 a few years back. The Outer Reef 63 Raised Pilothouse is another serious bluewater cruiser, this time designed to travel with the stabilisers extended, with nary a rock or roll to spill your drinks. What this year's big-city boat show may lack in numbers, it makes up for with high-end nautical style and a new level of designer nous. The movers in the industry say there's been a flight to quality and an exciting uptake of new technology. As a result, a new level of pleasure-boating utility has been born.
