Trailerable boats take centre stage at SCIBS
The 2021 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS: http://www.sanctuarycoveboatshow.com.au.) – held from May 20 to 23 on the Gold Coast – will feature a showcase of trailerable boats in what its organisers say is shaping up to be one of the biggest editions in the event’s 32-year history.
The show has three areas dedicated to the growing trailer boat segment and says visitors can expect to see hundreds of the latest models to suit everyone from experienced offshore anglers to first-time boaters.
Well-known brands exhibiting include Quintrex, Jeanneau, Mastercraft, Makocraft, Boston Whaler, RIB Force, Sea-Doo, Sea Ray, Haines, Whittley, BRIG, Sea Fox, Aurora, Yamaha and Mercury.
In the marine technology segment, the likes of Stella, Garmin, Fusion, Navico, Club Marine, Navionics, Seabreeze, Dometic, Raymarine, HELLA, Bruno, Lowrance, Simrad, VETUS-Maxwell and International Paint will be on display.
“Despite the industry experiencing extremely high demand over the past 12 months, we are thrilled that hundreds of trailerable boats, watersport and inflatable craft will be on display for visitors to experience this year,” says SCIBS sales & partnerships manager Dominic O’Brien.
“SCIBS has grown to become the southern hemisphere’s premier marine event and we are proud to offer an incredibly diverse range of boats and products in one spectacular waterfront location over four days.”
“SCIBS always has a great vibe with the social aspect of the marine village and the large volume of interstate and Kiwi visitors. With the unsettled year everyone has had, it will be a pleasant change to have everyone in boat show mode again,” says Andrew Bennett, Queensland Marine Centre (QMC) dealer principal.
Running from May 20-23, 2021, the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) attracts over 45,000 visitors and more than 300 exhibitors across four days. SCIBS is sponsored by Bentley Brisbane & Gold Coast, RACQ and Volvo Penta.
