Sanctuary Cove 2017 SCIBS Gold Coast Boat Show Ticket Sales Maritimo

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show has a reputation nationally and internationally that cannot be beaten and in 2017, Maritimo will again have a major investment in the show. People come to Sanctuary Cove for the atmosphere, to view the very latest boats and all things marine and to enjoy the whole package and that includes the shops, the restaurants, the hotel, the Village ambience, the whole thing. It is unique and will stay that way.”

– Bill Barry-Cotter, Maritimo



We have loved SCIBS this year – great weather, great people, excellent organisation. It’s the premier boat show in Queensland with international appeal. People travel from around Australia and the region to see the latest on show at SCIBS,”

– John Cowpe, The Multihull Group



We’ve had a cracking show – four boats sold including 2 Seawind 1160 Lites and an Aquila 44 Powercat, plus an Outremer 51. That’s a total of $4 million this Boat Show, which is a record for us. It’s been fantastic!” 

– Brent Vaughan, Multihull Central



At SCIBS this year, there were buyers from all around the region, NZ and Australia. We are progressing three sales, one from Singapore, another for an NSW client and the third for NZ. It’s a real Asia-Pacific show, which is great for exhibitors, particularly for our business which has offices in those markets.”

– Mark Elkington, Multihull Solutions



We love Sanctuary Cove, the atmosphere and the weather. There are a lot of big boat buyers around this year – everything is positive.  We will be back in 2018, planning bigger space . . . onward and upwards.”

– Neil Webster, Sirocco Marine
