The major events on the boating calendar are held in capital cities – Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and in the key market of Sanctuary Cove. But boating enthusiasts and those looking wanting to purchase a new vessel have opportunities to see a range of craft at numerous smaller, regional events. One of the next up on the smaller events calendar is the Robe Boat Show in South Australia.
This annual fishing and leisure focussed event offers a great opportunity for those in the Limestone Coast and Mount Gambier area to get down to the foreshore and enjoy a range of displays, activities and entertainment. Buyers can take a look at a range of watercraft from small dinghies, through to larger, luxury models. Serious buyers can be prepared to order at the Robe Boat Show by arranging their low rate loans through Jade Boat Loans ahead of the February event.
Robe Boat Show Details
This great regional event will be at Lake Butler Marina which is located at Royal Circus on the town’s foreshore. While it will attract many locals, the town is only 3.5 hours from Adelaide and 5 hours from Melbourne for those wanting a great weekend away.
Dates: Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February.
Hours: 9am to 7pm on Saturday and 9am to 4pm on the Sunday.
Entry: Over 12 years $10, under 12, free.
In addition to boats, there will be caravans and cars and a great line-up of music entertainment and activities for the kids. To keep visitors well refreshed, local beers and wines will be showcased. While a full list of exhibitors was not accessible at time of preparing this piece, boats on display will include models from Takacat Australia. This brand offers a great series of inflatables to suit many recreational and leisure pursuits.

For those that can’t make it for this Limestone Coast event, there are plenty more events to get into the spirit of boating coming up. The Fremantle Festival and Geelong’s Wooden Boat Festival are on in March. For Sydneysiders, late February is time for the speed on water with the opening round of the Sail GP racing on Sydney Harbour.
Considering Buying at Robe Boat Show?
Whether planning to place an order at the South Australian event or any upcoming expo, buyers can prepare by getting the financing sorted ahead of the date. We provide a fast and efficient service for arranging marine finance approval prior to purchase, to empower buyers to confidently place orders and commit to sales at events.
Some may think ‘but I’m not 100% sure that I will find the boat I want and order at that event’. That’s not a problem with Jade’s pre-approved funding service. If our customer doesn’t find the right vessel at the right price on that occasion, the approval and offer we have sourced simply expires after a certain number of days. No obligation, but plenty of opportunities with pre-approved finance.
All aspects involved with securing marine financing after a specific vessel has been chosen and the purchase commitment made also apply for finance approval before that stage. Our Secured Boat Loan can suit all types of new and many quality second-hand vessels. That includes small inflatables, trailerables, cruisers, power boats, sail boats and yachts and top of the range luxury motor yachts.
Our process for securing the lowest rate and the right lender is the same. From our 80+ lender base, we find the lender that is a best match for our customer and negotiate the best rate.
The only key difference is that buyers usually do not know exactly how much their vessel will cost before the dealer confirms the price. Advertised prices can provide a good indication of what to expect but buyers may add accessories or variations to their order.
Without that exact figure for the borrowing amount, pre-arranged funding is approved based on the estimate. The estimate amended when the deal is finalised. Any amendments to offers due to a difference between actual and estimate are advised at that time.
It’s a very straightforward process and an essential for showgoers to have the confidence to move swiftly, especially if prized models are in short supply. Now is the ideal time to apply for funding ahead of the South Australian event. Applications can be lodged online or by phone with one of our brokers.

For expo visitors inspired by the vessels on displays and without pre-approved funding, our jet ski finance calculator is a must-have buying tool. This estimator can be used with any internet connected device, making it the ideal resource to have in hand, or pocket, at an event.
Simply enter the price of the vessel, our current rate and preferred term and you’ll instantly receive a credit estimate.
