At the Marina


"This year, Maritimo's smaller sib­ling X50 will be cen­tre stage on a packed Pier F."

High-pro­file mar­ques such as Riviera, Palm Beach, Clip­per, Maritimo, Hori­zon, White­haven, Ocean Alexan­der, Ga­leon, Fleming and Leigh-smith Yachts will im­press both af­fi­ciona­dos and new­com­ers to the boat­ing life­style via an ar­ray of lo­cal and im­ported mo­tor yachts, sports boats and more.

Renowned Aus­tralian brand Palm Beach Mo­tor Yachts will dis­play the el­e­gant PB50, PB65 Fly­bridge and GT50 mod­els. Fea­tur­ing sleek lines, hand-crafted teak join­ery, im­pec­ca­ble fin­ishes, pow­er­ful per­for­mance and all the lux­u­ries of home.

Lead­ing the Clip­per Mo­tor Yachts’ lineup is the world pre­miere of its Hud­son Bay 470 sedan, a semi-dis­place­ment mo­to­ry­acht ideal for the Aus­tralian life­style. This comes com­plete with a two-cabin, two-bath­room lay­out, hop­per win­dows and spa­cious shaded cockpit for easy in­door-out­door en­ter­tain­ing.

Last year we were wowed by the re­lease of the sen­sa­tional Maritimo X60, this year, it's smaller sib­ling X50 will be cen­tre stage on a packed Pier F.

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the revo­lu­tion­ary X-se­ries' line will add to what has been one of the most suc­cess­ful prod­uct launches in Maritimo's his­tory, fol­low­ing the as­tound­ing in­ter­na­tional re­sponse to the re­lease of the X60 at Sanc­tu­ary Cove last May.

Lead de­signer Tom Barry-cot­ter said the X-se­ries' revo­lu­tion­ary design made a strong state­ment that Maritimo is a united team com­mit­ted to fur­ther es­tab­lish­ing it­self as in­dus­try lead­ers in design and per­for­mance.

Like the X60, the X50 fea­tures a unique aft cabin ac­ces­si­ble from both sa­loon and swim plat­form deck, reg­u­larly out­fit­ted as a stan­dard beach club cabin with en­suite. The area has been per­fected for use as an en­ter­tain­ment and wa­ter­sports hub, with the added abil­ity to con­vert to an ex­tra guest state­room, via a stan­dard fold­ing dou­ble bed in­te­grated into the rear bar or even a garage with space for a 3.2 me­tre ten­der. Prices start at A$1,440,000 in­clud­ing this beach club aft.

Also based at Sanc­tu­ary Cove, Hori­zon Mo­tor Yachts Aus­tralia will dis­play the lat­est Hori­zon RP115, the E75 and the world pre­miere of the “pocket su­pery­acht” – the FD77 Sky­line. The Hori­zon RP115 will be the largest Hori­zon to hit Aus­tralian shores for a third-time owner and, at 122ft, will be the largest ves­sel on show at SCIBS 2019. The brand-new 77ft (24.54m) FD77 with its dis­tinc­tive 23ft beam, avail­able as an open fly­bridge or en­closed bridge, was de­signed by es­teemed Dutch design stu­dio Cor D. Rover and is de­signed to ap­peal to the owner-op­er­a­tor.

Marine in­dus­try pow­er­house Riviera has also an­nounced it will host its hugely pop­u­lar Fes­ti­val of Boat­ing amid the splen­dour of Sanc­tu­ary Cove this year. The cel­e­bra­tion of the Riviera ‘fam­ily’ across mul­ti­ple venues at Sanc­tu­ary

Cove will co­in­cide with the pre­mium lux­ury mo­to­ry­acht builder pre­sent­ing an in­cred­i­ble four world pre­mieres at SCIBS. While de­tails of the new mod­els are a tightly guarded se­cret, Riviera has con­firmed they will form part of a stun­ning 11-yacht show­case sur­round­ing its pres­ti­gious Riviera Mo­tor Yacht Club at the end of the Sanc­tu­ary Cove Marina’s Pier F.

Princess Yachts also re­turns with a range of world-renowned mo­to­ry­achts to this years’ show. On dis­play are the Princess Y75 Mo­to­ry­acht, V65 Sport­sy­acht and V58 Sport­sy­acht, as well as a range of pre-loved Princess ves­sels.

The in­ge­nious design of the Y75 Mo­tor Yacht of­fers efficient and ag­ile cruis­ing. Her deck lay­out pro­vides a va­ri­ety of op­tions to en­ter­tain or re­lax in­clud­ing a walk­through fore­deck with U-shaped seat­ing and sun­bathing area. The

V75’s el­e­gant ex­te­rior con­ceals a vo­lu­mi­nous in­te­rior. Light flows into the main deck through ex­tended win­dow lines and a unique full­height win­dow on the port side to make the free-stand­ing din­ing area a spec­tac­u­lar place to en­ter­tain. For­ward on the lower deck, all three guest cab­ins are en­suite, whilst a ded­i­cated stair­case leads to the owner’s state­room amid­ships via a pri­vate lobby area.

The ex­cit­ing V65 sets a new stan­dard. Her deep-v hull is op­ti­mised for greater lift and less drag, equalling lower plan­ing speeds and greater ef­fi­ciency. When en­ter­tain­ing, her spa­cious cockpit in­spires re­lax­ation with a sun­pad and well-equipped din­ing area lead­ing to the fully equipped aft gal­ley. Her flex­i­ble sa­loon can be cli­mate con­trolled or opened to the el­e­ments via triple slid­ing aft doors and a re­tractable sun­roof. Below deck, eight guests en­joy four beau­ti­fully ap­pointed cab­ins all bathed in nat­u­ral light from el­e­gant hull glaz­ing.

White­haven Mo­tor Yachts will present the much-an­tic­i­pated Har­bour Clas­sic 40 and the all-new White­haven 6100 Coupe with its in­cred­i­ble su­pery­acht-in­spired Euro Edi­tion styling pack­age. “These ves­sels rep­re­sent close to two years of R&D and pro­duc­tion, and we are very proud to bring them to SCIBS,” White­haven Mo­tor Yachts manag­ing di­rec­tor Bruce Scott said.

The Har­bour Clas­sic 40 con­cept was drawn by highly re­spected New Zealand yacht de­signer/ builder Bill Up­fold, with Aus­tralian naval architect Misha Mer­zli­akov reimag­in­ing the design for dis­cern­ing Aus­tralian day boaters.

The Har­bour Clas­sic 40 is a so­phis­ti­cated and supremely com­fort­able 40ft day­boat, which com­bines the aes­thetic and time­less ap­peal of a gen­tle­man's cruiser with the ben­e­fits of high-tech design and en­gi­neer­ing, con­structed with an ex­pertly-de­signed hull for a qui­eter ride.

SCIBS will fur­ther host Queens­land's' first look at the new SX Range from In­tegrity Mo­tor Yachts. Com­ple­ment­ing the Clas­sic In­tegrity Sedan range, the new SX range fea­tures a host of styling mod­i­fi­ca­tions de­signed by Misha Mer­zli­akov to ap­peal to a new gen­er­a­tion of boat­ing fam­i­lies ea­ger to step into a re­laxed pace of cruis­ing that em­bod­ies the In­tegrity motto: “Dis­cover more”. While main­tain­ing the key In­tegrity DNA of spa­cious en­ter­tainer's lay­outs, un­der­cover cockpit and side walk­ways for easy ac­cess, as well as re­li­able and eco­nom­i­cal dis­place­ment cruis­ing, the new SX range blends the time­less ap­peal of tra­di­tional trawler­style at­tributes with strong au­to­mo­tive cues, so­phis­ti­cated ge­om­e­try and a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als.

In another SCIBS coup, F lem­ing Yachts Aus­tralia will have Rap­ture, its ex­cep­tional Fleming 58, on show. Cre­ated to fill the gap be­tween the 55 and 65 mod­els, the 58 was de­signed by Nor­man R. Wright & Sons in Bris­bane, whose ex­per­tise in de­sign­ing semidis­place­ment mo­tor cruiser hulls is un­ri­valled in Aus­tralia.

With a full-width mas­ter cabin below the pilot house and an en­gine room boast­ing full head­room, Rap­ture comes com­plete with digital switch­ing, a full ar­ray of the lat­est Ray­ma­rine nav­i­ga­tional equip­ment and Twin Disc joy­stick con­trol with the pop­u­lar Po­si­tion Hold fea­ture, in ad­di­tion to tra­di­tional elec­tronic throt­tle and gear levers.

Mean­while, Alexan­der Marine – rep­re­sent­ing Ocean Alexan­der with the 70ft and brand new 88 Sky­lounge mod­els on show – will also launch the award-win­ning, Euro­pean-built Ga­leon brand of boats into Aus­tralia with the Ga­leon 460 Fly and 510 Sky­deck mod­els.

Es­tab­lished in Poland in 1982, Ga­leon's staff of more than 800 em­ploy­ees de­liver about 100 ves­sels each year with hand­crafted ex­cel­lence and un­par­al­leled at­ten­tion to de­tail. While the yacht builder may be new to Aus­tralia, it has re­ceived ac­claim in Europe in­clud­ing the 2018 Cannes Yacht­ing Fes­ti­val where the Ga­leon 640 Fly was named ‘Most In­no­va­tive Yacht' in the 60-80 feet cat­e­gory.

"The “wow fac­tor” is turned up to 11 on Fair­line's Targa 48 from Leigh-smith Yachts."

Sanc­tu­ary Cove-based Leigh-smith Yachts will dis­play the Bri­tish-built Fair­line Targa 48 GT. With three cab­ins, this dy­namic sports cruiser fea­tures an Aus­tralian-friendly ‘gal­ley up’ lay­out and re­tains its full deck-level sa­loon, aft slid­ing doors and open­ing hard­top that opens the in­te­rior to sun­shine and sea breezes. The cockpit fea­tures a J-shaped seat­ing area with a ta­ble and of­fers the op­tion of a sunbed con­ver­sion. Along­side the 48GT will be the de­but of the 49 Alaska Sedan 2019 model, along the lat­est 720 Hampton En­durance.

Mak­ing her de­but in Queens­land, the Lon­greef 60 SX Fly­bridge is sure to at­tract at­ten­tion. The ex­tra-large fly­bridge with its bi­mini cover is reached by a stair­case from the aft deck. The Lon­greef 60 SX Fly­bridge is pow­ered by a pair of Cum­mins 550 hp diesel engines.

SCIBS marks the Queens­land de­but for this new re­lease which was cre­ated from the feed­back of 400 boat own­ers. Su­per-re­fined with func­tional glam­our and grandeur, step aboard this beauty and ad­mire her roomy ex­panses – she eas­ily ac­com­mo­dates two fam­i­lies across three lux­u­ri­ous be­d­rooms in­clud­ing a full-beam owner’s suite amid­ships. Dou­ble pull­man bunks in the down­stairs lounge and in a crew cabin aft of the en­gine room make this one of very few 60s that will com­fort­ably sleep 10 guests.

TMG will present the all-new La­goon 40. De­signed by VPLP Design and Pa­trick Le Que­ment, with in­te­ri­ors by Nauta Design, the yacht boasts a mast step fur­ther aft than her pre­de­ces­sors, a self-tack­ing jib and shorter boom for sim­pli­fied ma­noeu­vres, and a spa­cious lay­out ded­i­cated to a so­cial life­style and en­hanced per­for­mance.

TMG will also dis­play the sen­sa­tional Dragon­fly Sport 25, the pocket rocket trail­er­sailer tri­maran from Den­mark that is avail­able in two ver­sions – a tour­ing ver­sion and the more pow­er­ful and dy­namic sports model.

Another first will be the Aus­tralian de­but of ey­achts’ ex­cep­tional Green­line NEO Hard­top, which the dealer prom­ises will be “...the stand­out at the show and on lo­cal wa­ter­ways.”

At 10.99m, the ves­sel is avail­able with ei­ther twin out­boards for up to 40 knot speeds or 100 per cent elec­tric propulsion, which will achieve a top speed of 18 knots and in­cred­i­ble ef­fi­ciency. It can also en­ter­tain up to 12 guests in an open cockpit with chef 's gal­ley. The com­pany will also host demon­stra­tions of an im­pres­sive line-up of power boats through­out the show, in­clud­ing the ver­sa­tile and edgy Axopar 37 Sun­top, Axopar 28 Cabin and Axopar 28 T-top. Com­plet­ing the line-up will be the Green­line 39 and Sealine C330.

Multihull Solutions will present sev­eral new mod­els at SCIBS, in­clud­ing the Foun­taine Pa­jot Astrea 42, the most suc­cess­ful 42ft blue­wa­ter cruis­ing cata­ma­ran re­leased dur­ing the past 10 years.

Along­side the Astrea 42 in the Multihull Solutions line-up will be the Foun­taine Pa­jot Saona 47, the highly awarded 'ul­ti­mate world cruis­ing cata­ma­ran', and the Foun­taine Pa­jot MY44, con­sid­ered the game changer for the longer-range power cat­e­gory.

New­comer to Aus­tralian shores, the fea­ture­laden 10m Fo­cus Power 33 sports cruiser should im­press with its sleek, stylish looks and spa­cious design.

The Fo­cus Power 33 was de­signed by es­teemed UK naval architect, Tony Cas­tro and is the next in­car­na­tion of the model that won 2015 Boat of the Year Europe. Pow­ered by twin Steyr 260hp engines, per­for­mance should im­press too, as will its show-only spe­cial price of just $499,000.
