The expansion of the Sanctuary Cove Marina is set for completion in the coming months and will be featured on full display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from 20-23 May.

A first for a recreational marina in the Southern Hemisphere, the $10 million expansion includes new 6-star marina facilities and state-of-the-art undercover berths, which will accommodate vessels up to 30 metres in length and are completely weather-proof.

Marina general manager Steve Sammes said the marina expansion project was driven by industry demand for quality facilities and berthing services for vessels 60ft and over.

“Sanctuary Cove has been recognised as an idyllic boating and lifestyle destination for more than three decades and we are excited to continue to raise the bar for our visitors to The Marine Village, combining premier shopping and dining options with high quality marina facilities.

“We’ve already seen strong interest from interstate vessel owners across Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra particularly due to the high quality of our service offering,” he said.

“Some of our berthed yachts make their way to the northern hemisphere and back and this redevelopment ensures that the Sanctuary Cove Marina will offer facilities that rival some of the best recreational marinas in the world.”

With the Gold Coast marine industry growing rapidly, Sanctuary Cove will continue to deliver the very best in marina and lifestyle facilities, integrating boating with premier waterfront restaurants, retail and leisure facilities, as well as hosting the world-renowned SCIBS.

The new berths add 150 linear metres of premium display space to the enhanced SCIBS layout, which also incorporates the 5-star InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

Industry leaders Riviera, Princess, Maritimo and Horizon are just a few of the names to have secured their space at SCIBS positioned within the expanded marina.

Spaces are limited, so don’t miss the chance to join the ocean’s finest at the 32nd edition of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
