QUEENS­LAND will host the an­nual Sanc­tu­ary Cove In­ter­na­tional Boat Show in May, mark­ing 25 years since the in­au­gu­ral event.

The boat show and a nearby Coomera boat builder’s fes­ti­val will run this year from Thurs­day, May 23, through to Sun­day, May 26.

The show is a key event on the Asia-Pa­cific boat show cal­en­dar.

Dis­plays will in­clude a wide se­lec­tion of marine prod­ucts and ser­vices and a big line-up of su­per-yachts, lux­ury power cruis­ers, power and sail multi-hulls, trail­able boats and smaller craft in­clud­ing dinghies, jet­skis and kayaks.

Tick­ets are now on sale, with many go­ing to in­ter­state vis­i­tors.

Peo­ple who buy tick­ets on­line be­fore May 22 will be au­to­mat­i­cally in­cluded in a draw to win a three-night Hay­man Is­land es­cape.

Vis­i­tors to the show will also have a chance to visit a par­al­lel event and see lux­ury boat pro­duc­tion dur­ing the sec­ond an­nual Riviera Fes­ti­val of Boat­ing at the boat build­ing com­pany’s 14ha Coomera river­front site.

The fes­ti­val of­fers a pro­gram of so­cial events, fac­tory tours, on-water dis­plays, sem­i­nars and work­shops.

Riviera’s Stephen Milne said Riviera was of­fer­ing a free ferry ser­vice to and from Sanc­tu­ary Cove for reg­is­tered Sanc­tu­ary Cove show-go­ers.
