This weekend will see the beginning of the 2019 local boat show season with the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous on the Gold Coast, followed by the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) on 23-26 May.

The Australian Superyacht Rendezvous will welcome more than $250 million of leading superyachts and marine play-toys to the Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard while at Sanctuary Cove, more than 500 watercraft will be on display including the best-in-class superyachts and marine tech.

Ribco, a leader in premium high-performance rigid inflatable boats (RIBs), has announced the next generation of its Venom 44, which will appear at the rendezvous. A sleek 13.5 metre vessel with a spacious deck design, the Venom has eight individual hydraulic cockpit seats, large rear sun lounges, two large sleeping cabins, a large centre console concealing a spacious toilet and shower space, a wet bar and fridge, a Nespresso machine and a top-line JL Audio system. Powered by three Mercury Verado V8 engines, the Venom 44 is capable of voyages up to 200 nautical miles offshore, setting it apart from other RIBs on the market.

The next generation 2019 Venom 44 embodies Ribco’s unwavering commitment to quality, engineering and testing to ensure confident, agile and faultless operations while at sea.”
