The best way to experience the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show

Get the VIP treatment at one of the Southern Hemisphere’s premier boating events.

By Steve Colquhoun 25/05/2017

To stroll the Sanctuary Cove marina over the coming few days is to feel like a tycoon as you cast a loving eye over some of the newest and most luxurious yachts and cruisers afloat.

There’s the Maritimo S59 luxury cruiser making its international debut, following on the heels of the recent launch in Miami of the company’s M59 cruising yacht, which makes its Australasian debut at Sanctuary Cove.

The S59 (above) leads a cast of debuts including the global-first showing of the Integrity MY 530 Grand Sedan and the Grand Banks GB60, plus the Australian launch of the Lagoon 630MY, Grady White Freedom 375 and Super Air Nautique GS22.

There’s also the latest gear and gadgets to delight tech-savvy boaties, plus music, demonstrations and a live bream shootout.

To experience the Sanctuary Cove show in a more salubrious fashion, make the Top Deck VIP Lounge your base for operations. Featuring exclusive access, complimentary food and beverages, entertainment and special offers, it’s the place to get away from the crowds while enjoying an elevated view of proceedings.

Off the water, the other attraction not to be missed is Supercar Street, a jaw-dropping collection of the latest supercars and luxury saloons rarely seen in the one location. Headlined by British manufacturer Bentley, the collection also includes cars from Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Lotus.

If you’re into making an entrance, book a helicopter via Gold Coast Helitours from the Marina Mirage Heliport or the Horizon Shores Marina.

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show runs from May 25 to 28 and tickets are available at the gate, or online with a 25% discount. (
