As Australia’s largest marine lifestyle event, Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) is a calendar highlight for many boaties.

Set to take place 23-26 May, this year’s show has already attracted many of the biggest and best marine brands, with 330 exhibitors, 700-plus boats, and 2500 products set to be showcased at SCIBS. “We are thrilled to be welcoming guests and exhibitors back to the beautiful location of Sanctuary Cove for our 35th annual event,” says Johan Hasser, General Manager of Mulpha Events. “This year’s program of events promises something for everyone. We’re excited to present a bigger trailer boat exhibition in 2024 with significantly more space within the Sports, Leisure and Fishing precinct. As well as the incredible marine displays, the Marine Village precinct offers family friendly street entertainment and loads of great atmosphere, which SCIBS is synonymous for.”

Maritimo’s impressive on water display is always a SCIBS highlight, and the luxury motor yacht brand is set to showcase some exciting model updates at the show. Short Marine will debut the Viking 54 Convertible, along with their largest ever showcase of Grady-White boats. SCIBS Ambassador Paul Burt will once again be hosting the Live Bream Shoot Out fishing competition, with over $10,000 in prizes to be won. Team entries are strictly limited so if you want to take part, you’ll need to get in quick. Attendees to the show will also get a taste of the superyacht lifestyle with the launch of the Lagoon Beach Club VIP Experience, a brand-new precinct on the grounds of the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort. VIP guests will be treated to a five-star grazing menu, pop-up bars, tasting experiences, and live entertainment.
