“We are anticipating at least 350 exhibitors at the Show,” said Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show general manager Mark Jensen, who noted this year’s May event had attracted around 50 first-time exhibitors.
The 21st Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is staged in Australia from Thursday, May 21 to Sunday, May 24, 2009. Luxury vessels, marine accessories and engines form part of a combined display valued at hundreds of millions of dollars.
Exciting new releases planned for the Show include Sunseeker Australia’s launch of the 34M. Of a breathtaking scale with classic flowing lines, this vessel features three decks providing opulent entertainment areas with accommodation for up to 10 guests and five crew. The starting price for the 34M is $A23 mililon (prices vary depending on engine and optional choices and based on delivery to Australia). Sunseeker Australia is also showcasing the Sunseeker 60 Manhattan Mark II in another Australian marine launch.
