Ocean Media hosted what was the party of the Sydney International Boat Show – the fabulous Ocean Club soirée at Café del Mar.

Ocean Media, including our titles, Ocean and Sails magazine, along with the Great Southern Route, was thrilled to welcome owners, VIPs, captains and international and industry guests to our Ocean Club soirée on the perfectly situated Café del Mar terrace hovering above the marvellous marine showcase that is Sydney International Boat Show.

From the feedback from our sponsors, guests and colleagues, our Ocean Club event was again the party to be at and a resounding success – the ideal opportunity to mingle and catch up with friends and make new connections.

The event was proudly sponsored by Pilatus, Oyster Yachts and Majesty Yachts by Gulf Craft, represented by Australian Superyachts, with support from Pantaenius Yacht Insurance, Crown Residences Sydney, the Monaco Economic Board, M Yachts, and Watersports Central.

Our guests enjoyed an evening of live music, entertainment and free-flowing G.H. Mumm champagne, accompanied by Chivas Regal and Beefeater 24 cocktails, canapes and local beer and cider from the Sydney Brewery Company. A big thanks also to our prize sponsors Oogii Shoes for a $500 voucher, Watersports Central for hire of their Schiller water bikes, G.H. Mumm champagne, and Café del Mar for a $200  voucher.

Here are just a few of the snaps from the evening, showing in vibrant colour the incredible vibe, delectable fare and talented entertainment which had the party buzzing.


Pilatus Australia have partnered with Ocean Media for many years. Congratulations to Hillary and the team, as the Ocean Club is always a great event which our guests thoroughly enjoy.

We sponsored the Ocean Club to continue to connect with our key clients. The feedback from all our clients in attendance was that they had an outstanding evening. Thank you to all the team at Ocean for a wonderful event!

It was great to be sponsors of both the Ocean Club and partner at the boat show with the Ocean team. Oyster Yachts was able to have a presence at the Sydney International Boat Show, in a great environment with the other companies, whose individual products complimented each other.

Once again providing sponsorship for the Ocean Club was such a delight. As per usual they went above and beyond in making the evening so special for all their guests and worthwhile for their sponsors.

We became involved with Ocean Club because the Sydney Boat Show is right on our doorstep and the obvious synergies between Ocean’s clients and ours. The event was very well organised and a lovely introduction to the Ocean family. We hope to continue our great work with them.”

The event was superb for us. We saw real value in partnering with Ocean as we knew that this would be one of the best opportunities at the Sydney Boat Show to network with captains and owners, and we weren’t wrong. We had a fantastic night with some great food and drinks but most valuable of all made some real connections with the stellar attendees. See you in 2020!

Congratulations to Hillary and the Ocean team, it was a fantastic event which we at Water Sports Central were delighted to sponsor. We look forward to sponsoring many Ocean events into the future.
