Sail-World.com : Gotta Be there!!! Sanctuary Cove

Gotta Be there!!! Sanctuary Cove

Nearly 400 boats on the marina at next weeks Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show which, if placed end to end, would stretch for 5.1 kilometres. If you are into boating, the first big boat show of the year is a MUST see. Fly, train, bus, boat - but be there!!

Organisers are convinced this Sanctuary Cove Show on Queenslands Gold Coast (Thursday May 22 to Sunday May 25th) will be 'bigger and better than ever', with the show’s general manager, the affable Berry Jenkins, predicting exhibitor numbers would surpass the 456 of last year.

'Adding to the show’s status is the fact that many companies choose it to for their world or regional debuts,' he said.

'And in addition to the Australian marine industry’s leading manufacturers, distributors and suppliers we have exhibitors from China, New Zealand and Taiwan, together with many senior executives of major companies from the United States, Europe and throughout Asia,' he added.

The 2008 show will have nearly 400 boats on display at the marina, a line up of craft that, if placed bow to stern, would stretch for 5.1 kilometres.


Hundreds of trailer boats, marine electronics, engines, and assorted boating accessories will be displayed in four large pavilions throughout the waterfront Marine Village.

One local dealer, John Ramund, a director of Boats International, distributors of the renowned Taiwan-built Horizon range, said the show was increasing in size every year.

Boats International will display one Horizon destined to become a show highlight, a 20.0-metre (65’) motor yacht with a $2.7 million price tag.

Other highlights, according to Mr Jenkins, include the world debuts of the Maritimo 60’ Cabriolet and Activa Marina’s 53 Raised Pilothouse, together with the Australian debuts of the Fairline Targa 64 GT, Sunseeker’s Manhattan 70 and Yachting Unlimited’s new Ferretti hard top sportscruisers.

Sunseeker’s Manhattan 70, incidentally, forms part of a ‘flotilla’ of Sunseeker vessels with a combined retail value around $25 million!

In new developments for the 20th anniversary Show, Sanctuary Cove has launched an online Boat Show admission ticket facility. Visitors can purchase One-Day or Four-Day passes directly from the website of www.sanctuarycoveboatshow.com.au or buy through Oztix on 1300 762 545.

Four-Day passes cost $A44 adults, $A38 concession and $A16 children (5 – 14 years). All prices include GST. (Booking and credit card fees apply for all online bookings. For full terms and conditions view the website).

Four-Day passes are ONLY available pre-purchased on line or through Oztix. However One-Day passes can be purchased during Boat Show dates at Parklands showgrounds or on entry to the resort via water taxi, ferry, limousine, bus or taxi drop off.

As in past years, there is no public parking on site during the Show. However there are streamlined transport options to reach the show which are quick, easy and take the hassle out of traveling.
