Gold Coast’s boat feast is for all tastes
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.
