The 24th annual Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 24-27 May 2012, has been supercharged and amped to the max with a myriad of attractions to deliver outstanding value for money for a ticket price of just $22 per person (online).
As well as new infrastructure, with the super yacht pavilion replaced by a brand new marquee and greater flexibility for exhibitors, there will be a host of demonstrations and marine-themed activities to ignite visitors’ imaginations.
Along with dozens of world and national launches of boats of all sizes, equipment and all manner of ideas for enjoying the great Aussie ocean and waterways lifestyle, the line-up of awe-inspiring show-stoppers aims to bring a new generation of visitors to the Boat Show, while thrilling loyal show-goers with world-class exhibits.
For the first time in Australia, visitors will be able to behold the gravity-defying JetLev R200, the coolest way to hit the waves! Drawing inspiration from the James Bond flick “Thunderball”, the JetLev is winning devotees around the world since its US launch last year. Shooting 30ft (9m) in the air with just a hose linking it to the water, the JetLev will be on display throughout the four-day event.
Then there’s the incredible Seabreacher from Innespace – a shark-like vessel that is the latest and most advanced submersible watercraft on Earth, boasting a supercharged engine that propels it to a top speed of 50mph on the surface and 25mph below. With unparalleled thrust, the Seabreacher can execute insane “aquabatic tricks”, launching itself clear out of the water!
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!
Due to popular demand, the ‘Women on Water’ program will be back for another year, with the glamorous “High Tea on the High Seas” concept combining fashion and fine jewellery on cruises around the Broad water, as well as cooking and interiors seminars and hands-on practical experiences such as Skipper Training Sessions.
There are still plenty more guests, performances and special attractions to be confirmed.
