The Sydney International Boat Show is where boaties go to get the latest information about recreational boating. 

The Sydney International Boat Show 2018, is on at the International Convention Centre Darling Harbour Sydney. It is the Southern Hemisphere’s premier boat show and Fire Protection Technologies will once again be exhibiting the range of Fireboy-Xintex clean agent fire suppression systems range, along with other Fireboy-Xintex safety products.

U.S. Coast Guard studies show that approximately 90% of all marine fires start in the engine compartment. The same studies show that only one in ten marine fires is successfully extinguished with typical dry-chemical portable fire
extinguishers due to the inherent difficulties of fighting a fire manually. In addition, dry-chemical fire extinguishers leave behind a powder that can damage the engine and sensitive electronic equipment.

Fireboy has designed safe and effective engine room fire protection with no water or powdery residue. All systems are heat activated to discharge the clean agent gas automatically at 175°F (79°C) with no operator intervention required. With a Fireboy system, the fire extinguishing agent is released much faster than any possible crew response, resulting in a faster fire-out time and less damage.
