THE inaugural 2012 Denarau Boat Show in Nadi kicked off to a great start with a hundred per cent turnout of participants at Port Denarau yesterday.

Destination Denarau events manager Kereni Colawai said 35 marine partners turned up for the marina's first boat show.

"We had a very good turnout but as for the public response, we expect it to pick tomorrow (today) and Sunday because people will have more time to come around and check out what is on display at the marina," said Ms Colawai.

"The boat show is basically to promote Fiji's marine industry.

"We have government and the private sector involved in this boat show and it is something to promote what Fiji's marine industry has on offer.

"We have all agencies represented in this year's boat show from salvaging companies to boatbuilders and the relevant authorities who deal with maritime safety," she said.

Ms Colawai said water sports enthusiasts would also enjoy the show as it boasted a variety of water sports available in the country.

"We also have on display a variety of boats, yachts and hobbie cats that were all made in Fiji for export."

The expo starts at 9am at Port Denarau Marina.
