The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a fun-filled entertainment program throughout the four days, running May 23 to 26.

General Manager, Marketing and Events Sue Thomson said a range of live entertainment and interactive displays would complement this year’s exhibitor showcase, with highlights for the whole family to enjoy.

'This year’s entertainment line-up is a great side show mix to the fantastic array of exhibitor and boating displays we have for our 25th anniversary year,' said Ms Thomson.

'We have lots of celebrity special guest appearances, music acts, kids’ entertainment and something for ladies visiting the show. SCIBS will be a great day out for the whole family.'

Highlights include:

The popular Channel 7 Stage returns in 2013, hosting daily live music acts from various local and national artists including Brown Suga, Rhydian Lewis, Mark Divola, Casey Barnes (who will perform alongside his band KICK) and headline act, 2012 X-Factor top twelve finalist Carmelo Munzone will take to the stage on Saturday, May 25.

In keeping with Australia’s current obsession with all things culinary, The Channel 7 Stage will also host twice daily cooking demonstrations throughout the four day event. Creek to Coast presenters Sally Jenyns, Dean Miller and Scott Hillier will cook up a storm on the Thursday and Friday sessions, with special guests Jake and Elle Harrison, grand final runners up from the current season of Channel 7’s My Kitchen Rules leading the presentations on Saturday and Sunday.

For the ladies, the much-loved Women on Water program returns to this year’s SCIBS line-up. A feature event will be the indulgent ‘High Tea on the High Seas’ cruises on Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26. This year Channel 7 personalities, Kimberley Busteed and Liz Cantor will host each cruise.

Ladies are invited to leave the gentlemen on dry land and embark on a cruise where they will enjoy complimentary champagne and a light lunch while taking in views of the Coomera River and the stunning boats on display in the Sanctuary Cove marina.

The cruise will depart at noon on both days, with the two-hour sojourn including on-board entertainment, pampering, exclusive gift giveaways and prizes.

Other highlights of the Women on Water Program at SCIBS will include an ‘Introduction to Sailing’ course led by Sunshine Sailing Australia to give women an insight into the basics of getting on the water, as well as daily fashion parades and boat decorating seminars.

The Kids Zone returns to SCIBS in 2013 where face painting, dodgem boats and a video game station will be sure to keep children occupied. Kids can also be dropped off at the interactive ‘2 Bent Rods’ workshop for some fully supervised, marine-themed fun.

If you like your AFL you will love this year’s show. Visitors will have an opportunity to meet players from the Gold Coast Suns and learn a few tips from the boys.

A swag of Queensland Water Police vessels will be on show, including the $3.75 million 'Brett T Handran' 22 metre catamaran. The Water Police will also bring their Tactical Response Boat and 2 police jet skis which will be set up on a walk-around floating pontoon for kids to have their photos taken.

Crowd favourite JetLev’s gravity-defying on-water jetpack display will make its thrilling return to this year’s SCIBS. Visitors will be treated to JetLev’s spectacular performance throughout the four-day event, which will see its driver shot nine metres into the air propelled by a powerful stream of water.

If on-water fun is more your style, head to the stand-up paddle boarding demonstrations which are being held four-times daily preceding the JetLev display.

But the thrills don’t end there! The kids will be treated to roving entertainment by Captain Jack Sparrow, while musicians Hot Jazz and Swing Kings will bring a funky carnival vibe to the streets of the Marine Village.

Not to mention the boats! This year more than 300 exhibitors, products and technologies will be on display alongside the superb backdrop of the award-winning Sanctuary Cove marina and The Marine Village.
