Published: Thursday, 02 April 2015
The 27th Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) taking place May 21-24 in Queensland, Australia is experiencing strong exhibitor bookings both on water and on land, with the Pavilions almost sold out.
Some of the world’s leading brands in motor and sailing boats and equipment will be on display including Sunseeker, Fleming, Maritimo, Horizon, Bering Yachts, Steber, Sea Ray, Lagoon, Lipari and Fontaine Pajot. In addition, the next wave of dealers and marine companies are eager to reach the 40,000 visitors who are predicted to flock to SCIBS for the four-day event.
Sundance Marine will bring the Italian-made Monte Carlo MC5 flybridge with its Tiffany blue hull – guaranteed to turn heads for its sleek styling and lavish interior finishes.
Australian-made marque, Palm Beach Motor Yachts will display two vessels at this year’s SCIBS – the PB55 and PB45. The 55 was modelled on the company’s flagship 65 and comes with a two or three cabin layout and rear tender garage, with scope for owners to customise many of the interior features.
Based at Sanctuary Cove Marina, Integrity Motor Yachts will have four of their latest boats on show – the 320 express, 340 sedan, 380 sedan and 440 sedan.
Prestige blue water cruising brand, Grand Banks will have the 54 Heritage EU “Europa” model on show. The largest of the Heritage series fleet, the 54 Heritage EU provides a great solution for a couple or family looking for extended cruising capabilities. The 54 EU is built on the same highly acclaimed, GB-designed hull as the 53 Aleutian RP, with its V-drive propulsion system.
The Windcraft Group, which represents respected brands such as Hanse, Moody, Dehler and Solaris yachts, will be exhibiting the Hanse 575.
“The Windcraft Group supplies boats to buyers all over Australia and New Zealand,” says Windcraft’s Director Peter Hrones. “Sanctuary Cove is a great opportunity for Queenslanders to see some of our top quality brands. The Hanse 575 is a sleek and stunning Judel/Vrolijk yacht with an outstanding cockpit, revolutionary dinghy garage and contemporary, versatile interior.”
An exhibitor since 2008, Fraser Marine from the Sunshine Coast will have three of its Australian-made and owned Caribbean boats on water this year. All models are stringently tested for Australian conditions with world-class quality control and are exported to 110 countries.
“The Caribbean brand is designed and built for Australian conditions,” says Fraser Marine’s Darren Perkins. “We build 16 to luxury 49-foot boats and our range suits game fishing to coastal bluewater cruising or entertaining family and friends.”
Visitors to this year’s SCIBS will be able to travel via land, water and air, with up to a dozen transport options available to make accessing the 27th annual event easier to navigate than ever.
