Major brands announced on water for the highly anticipated 32nd edition of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS). The event, to be held from May 20-23 at the vibrant Marine Village on the Gold Coast, is shaping up to be a bumper year following the launch of exhibitor bookings in mid-December.

Among the prominent brands having already applied for prime positions on water are Maritimo, Horizon, Princess Yachts, Integrity, Whitehaven, Eyachts, Azimut, Sunseeker, Hampton, Fairline, Palm Beach, Grand Banks, Fleming, Beneteau, Lagoon and Iliad.

SCIBS sales and partnerships manager Dominic O’Brien said exhibitor bookings have been extremely strong and are on par with the most recent 2019 Show, which was well lauded and highly successful.

“Exhibitor bookings are tracking over 60 per cent, which historically indicates the Show is expected to sell out well in advance,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Hundreds of boats will be displayed on water, from superyachts and sailing boats, to motor yachts, mono and multihulls, guaranteed to promote every segment of the boating lifestyle.”

SCIBS general manager Johan Hasser said it was pleasing to see major industry players putting their support behind the return of the Southern Hemisphere’s premier boat show.

“We commend the industry for their unwavering resilience despite the many roadblocks they’ve faced over the past 12 months, and we are grateful that our exhibitors continue to support our efforts to provide a premium platform for marine brands to showcase their products in one spectacular location.

“We witnessed some incredible industry sales come out of the Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival and we’re confident that exhibitors will continue to ride the wave at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. We’re looking forward to coming together as an industry and celebrating 32 years of championing the boating lifestyle.”

Premier luxury motor yacht builders Maritimo are excited to once again return to SCIBS and provide visitors an exclusive preview of some of their newest models.

“As a part of our world-class on-water display, we will be showcasing the world premiere of our new M55 Flybridge and S55 Sedan motor yachts. In addition to the latest range of motor yachts we have more exciting new model development unveilings, and both yachting and powerboating displays from the world champion Maritimo Racing division,” said Maritimo lead designer Tom Barry-Cotter.
