John Potter, Sales and Operations Manager at Bennington, talks us through the luxury pontoon boat brand’s plans for Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

Which vessels will Bennington be showcasing at Sanctuary Cove International Show (SCIBS)?

Bennington will have a great display of pontoon boats ranging from our S-Series premium and ultimate pontoon series, L-Series our high-end luxury pontoon series and the R-Series – the ultra-high end luxury series. We will have our static display along with an on-water display offering water tests and demonstrations throughout the weekend.

What you are most looking forward to about SCIBS?

Having our new dealer, RCM Sales, displaying the range and representing the flagship of luxury pontoon boat Bennington for our Queensland market. Along with our customers getting to meet the team at RCM Sales.

What in your opinion makes SCIBS unique?

SCIBS is definitely one of the best shows in Australia. Not only does it offer the largest on-water display of luxury superyachts, it has everything from luxury day boats down to boating equipment, all in an outdoor setting ensuring customers and buyers have a relaxing day out.

Do you enjoy interacting with customers and having them aboard the vessels?

For us creating memories on the water with family and friends is why we are in the industry. Having a platform like SCIBS where we can educate customers about our products and give them an opportunity to view our boats makes for a very rewarding weekend.

Where can we find Bennington at SCIBS?

Bennington Boats will have two displays at SCIBS this year, both being led by our dealer RCM Sales. We have a static stand located at SLF 3 and an on-water stand located on the demonstrator arm.
