The 24th Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, May 24-27 2012, is now less than 100 days away. The program is packed with world-firsts and an array of activities for all ages and appetites. It will also provide a venue for international and Australian launches, as well as displays and showcases that will ignite the imaginations of a new generation of visitors.

With the theme 'Boating and Beyond', this year’s event aims to stake its position as the venue for showcasing international innovation.

As a sailor, you'll have to search for your interest, as there will be every kind of boat featured - from kayak, tinnie, RIB and jet-ski to day boat, trailerboat, ski boat, catamaran, cruiser or charter. Also on show will be the new generation of cleaner, greener engines, high-tech flotation, safety and navigation equipment, books, charts, maps and accessories – an entire world of marine lifestyle will be showcased this year.

The largest vessel on show, 'Norseman' is an Italian built Falcon 90 constructed for luxury Mediterranean charter and will treat visitors to a glimpse of the multi-million dollar, megayacht lifestyle. She has spent two seasons in the Mediterranean and two seasons in Australia and will be seeking expressions of interest, for sale at $5.8m.

Safe to say, the Gold Coast being a motoring paradise, that motor yachts will feature strongly.

However, in the ever-popular catamaran arena, Seawind is set to impress with its latest Seawind 1000 XL2 and a revolutionary new concept, still under wraps – a 'category first' that will have global appeal.

Jeanneau Australia and the Queensland importer, Mooloolaba Yacht Brokers, will host the Australian show debut of the first of the stunning new deck saloon range, the Sun Odyssey 44DS. The model was only launched at the Paris Boat show in December so it is hot off the press. Paying particular attention to feedback from Australian customers, the interior of the new 44DS has no fewer than 16 opening ports to give superb ventilation throughout. The owner’s cabin is especially catered for with a large opening port out to the transom offering a wide view.

In the trailerable category, there is a swag of launches catering to the fishing, tender, sport and family markets.

Sealegs will have its latest amphibious craft on show, a 7.7m cabin RIB, and there are scores of tinnies, RIBS and ski boats for all skill levels and applications.

Zodiac will present its new 'Mona Lisa' range of Cadet compacts and Cadet RIBs, constructed to be sturdy and stylish
in high-tech Strongan (PVC) and Neo (Hypalon).

And that’s the beauty of the 2012 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. No matter what your interest or inclination, there’s something to suit – or in the case of this year’s event, there is a myriad of things you have never even dreamt of.

For 2012, the entertainment has been boosted to overdrive, with awesome launches in the form of Seabreacher X – the latest and most advanced shark-shaped submersible watercraft that propels itself clear out of the water. Boasting a 260hp supercharged engine, the Seabreacher X can hit a top speed of 43 Knots (80km/h) on the surface and 22 Knots (40 km/h) below.

For those who want to admire the views, above and below the water, there’s the Ego, 'compact semi-submarine' from Korea, heralded as the most environmentally-friendly and commercially viable concept of its kind. The developers are looking for international distributors, so Sanctuary Cove could be the place for tourism operators or researchers to get on board!

There are fashion parades with a difference, featuring lively performances by TV dance stars modelling the new season’s performance and casual wear from Gill, Musto and Sperry, as well as cooking segments and live music on stage in the new entertainment piazza.

Once again this year, the ladies have the chance to don their finest and take to the water, with the glamorous 'High Tea on the High Seas' cruises as part of the Women on Water program.

Also for the 'best mates', there will be cooking onboard your boat hosted by Channel Seven’s ‘My Kitchen Rules’, plus interiors seminars and hands-on practical experiences such as Skipper Training.

Don Jones, CEO of Marine Queensland echoes those sentiments. 'Sanctuary Cove is the ideal location to showcase to the local, national and international community, customers and potential customers of what the recreational marine lifestyle has to offer and the many options to access that lifestyle in a fantastic village atmosphere.'

Visitors can buy tickets online now and go in the running to win 3 nights’ accommodation at Sea World Resort which can be used during boat show, or another occasion.
