Johannesburg show wraps up in South Africa

While the boating season in the north is now past the halfway mark, in the Southern Hemisphere the marine world is gearing up for spring.

South Africa’s second annual Johannesburg Boat Show opened last Thursday and ran through the weekend.

Held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre at Nasrec, the government-supported event is South Africa’s largest boat show and serves as a showcase for the consumer and industry markets.

On the opening day of the show, South Africa’s Marine Industry Association announced a new voluntary certification program similar to the National Marine Manufacturers Association’s certification program in the United States.

Based on a boatbuilder’s self-declaration and manufacturing conformity, the Marine Industry of South Africa will endorse the builder by providing it with a MIASA builder’s plate.
