Sanctuary Cove Show Introduces Sea Trial Opportunities
Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show will introduce a dedicated sea trial area at the 2010 Show in
May in an Australian first.

Exhibitors at the leading international Show can book a berth on the sea trial dock within the marina
display area. The opportunity is restricted to one berth per exhibitor with a limited number of berths up to
45ft and some berths possible for longer vessels, depending on configuration.

“We have introduced this new component to the 2010 Show based on exhibitor feedback,” said
Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show General Manager Barry Jenkins.

“The facility may be useful for a wide range of marine exhibitors from smaller trailerable craft through to
luxury vessels. Many exhibitors commented they wanted the opportunity to showcase their designs and
products to prospective customers in a short sea trial,” he said.

The sea trial dock will offer clear and direct access to the Coomera River. Tests can be done during
Show hours.

The 22nd Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is held at Sanctuary Cove from Thursday, May 20 to
Sunday, May 23 at one of Australia’s leading tourism and boating destinations, the Gold Coast.

Other initiatives for the 2010 event include a Prestige Brokerage and Charter Display. Only accredited
marina brokers and dealers will be permitted to exhibit within this dedicated display area on the marina.
The new category means there will be more high quality 15m-plus vessels, some valued at more than
$A1 million.

“We believe these new components will further enhance the Show’s reputation as a leading marine
event in the Australasian region,” said Mr Jenkins.

“The Show’s management is delighted with exhibitor response thus far with 80 per cent of our pavilion
areas booked some four months out from the event.” This year’s Show has three large pavilions
including the Yachtbuilders’ Pavilion sited on a prime location with glass walls overlooking the marina. As
in past years, there is an extensive on-water display at the marina and hardstand exhibits at the adjacent
waterfront Marine Village.

In other news, Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show welcomed back Club Marine as a sponsor.

“We are delighted Club Marine has renewed its association with the Show,” said Mr Jenkins.

The 2010 Show has leading Australian companies as media partners including Channel 7, Radio 4KQ,
Trade A Boat, and BoatPoint.com.au

The 22nd Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show will be staged 9am to 5pm daily from May 20 to 23.
Past events have drawn buyers from around the world, eager to view more than 100 world and regional


                                                     1
