The annual Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) is back for another year of luxury boating and marine mania across four days of fun in one of the most glorious locations in the nation. Held from May 24 to 27 on the Gold Coast, SCIBS is the southern hemisphere’s premier boating festival and this year will celebrate its milestone 30th anniversary edition, which means there’s a plethora of activity planned for the punters.
Attracting boating brands, dealers, distributors and customers from across the globe, this year’s highly anticipated SCIBS will feature a spectacular display of hundreds of boats and thousands of marine products from the industry’s leading brands in the picturesque waterfront Marine Village Sanctuary Cove.
Nautical nuts will swoon over the latest and greatest from the marine world on display, with everything from superyachts, sailing boats and motor yachts to jet skis, stand-up paddle boards and electronics on show across four action-packed days. For those attending with the kids, there will also be a family friendly entertainment program, including live musicians, a kids’ zone, fishing masterclasses, cooking demonstrations and educational boating seminars and workshops.
Plus, the extra good news is InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort is located moments away from all the action, which is why we have teamed up with SCIBS to present a special experience for guests wishing to attend the show.
