Last weekend’s 2023 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show was a resounding success and arguably the most enjoyable in the company’s history! It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces visit us at our stand as well as meeting many new friends over the four days. Sincere thank you to everyone who came to the show!
Our team was kept on their toes conducting an endless stream of inspections of the five models we had on display in conjunction with our sister company, The Yacht Sales Co. Appointments to inspect our Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans and motor yachts were in very high demand with strong sales in progression across the range. Buyer feedback reveals the Fountaine Pajot Aura 51 was considered to be the standout sailing catamaran at the show, while the shipyard’s MY4S was also extremely popular.
The Absolute Yachts 47 Fly was a real headturner and enjoyed huge interest, which is a great result for the first time it has ever been displayed at SCIBS. The Dufour 470 also received a lot of attention from the yachties with several orders on various Dufour models expected to be finalised following sea trials this week. Our ILIAD Catamarans team was inundated during the show as the new ILIAD 53S commanded attention and a number of orders were taken across the range.
We also had an extensive range of pre-owned brokerage boats listed for sale during the event, with many going under contract at our Gold Coast Sales Centre during the show. It was wonderful to welcome dozens of owners who are currently waiting on the arrival of their new yachts!
We are now busy following up the ocean of enquiries we have received, and invite you to contact our team should you have any enquiries about our boat show display yachts or other models we offer.
