The Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival, taking place from 13 to 15 of November, will feature an impressive range of Australian and international brands that service all ends of the market, with major marques confirmed to premiere premium vessels, with multiple worldwide and Australian launches scheduled to take place.
Horizon Yachts will be displaying the RP100. The latest in Horizon’s popular Raised Pilothouse series has been designed by Horizon with the Australian market in mind.
The tri-deck yacht has four staterooms on the lower deck for up to eight overnight guests. Her main saloon has access to the aft deck, and features a built-in bar and entertainment centre. The yacht will be able to reach up to 21 knots thanks to twin CAT C32 Acert engines, with a range of 1,300 nautical miles while cruising at 10 knots.
Princess Yachts Australia will be showing off a V65. Her Olesinski-designed deep-V hull is optimised for greater lift and less drag, for lower planing speeds and greater efficiency. Twin MAN V8-1200hp engines and Seakeepers SK9 gyro ensures a comfortable cruise.
Her spacious cockpit has an automatic extendable sun awning and a sun pad for relaxation at anchor. The well-equipped dining area leads to a fully-equipped aft galley.
The Multihull Group will undertake the Australian premiere of the award-winning Lagoon Seventy 8. This new model offers more than 25 metres of boat and features a spacious galley, cinema, boardroom, meeting area, workshop and separate crew quarters.
The Multihull Group’s managing director, John Cowpe, said they are very excited to introduce this incredible vessel to the marketplace.
“The Seventy 8 from Lagoon has a unique broad-scale offering when you consider volume, range speed and comfort,” he said.
Whitehaven Motor Yachts will exhibiting their largest model yet, the custom-built Whitehaven 8000 SY. This yacht was built for repeat clients, and features a larger tender garage as the new owners go cruising in remote areas.
Based on the Whitehaven 75 Finito, this yacht features upgraded navigation screens and a night vision camera, with tweaks to the joinery and decor colours to make the 8000 distinct. Alongside this yacht will be the 6500 Sport Yacht and the Harbour Classic 40.
The event will be Australia’s first boat show in 2020 and a welcome platform for the marine industry to showcase their latest arrivals, while serving as an exciting precursor to the 2021 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May.
