The Endless Summer event, with a colourful tropical theme, was held at the Coral Sea Marina Resort in the Whitsundays.
Guests arrived dressed in sunglasses, loud shirts, swimwear and leis ready to relax and enjoy meeting others in the industry. Held in the Lookout Lounge, an upstairs venue at the marina, the sweeping views out across the yachts and the bay beyond added to the party’s ambience.
The event was very successful with many party-goers in attendance including crew and representatives from sponsors and organisers. Guests dined on delicious freshly cooked sliders and the drinks were more than plentiful. Live music and a DJ complimented the evening with some crews hitting the dance floor later in the evening.
This year Superyacht Australia has hosted two Endless Summer parties for captains and crew of superyachts in Australia to celebrate the conclusion of both the northern and southern cruising seasons.
Held six months apart with the Sydney event in April and the Great Barrier Reef in October, the event provides a valuable platform for crews to get together in a relaxed social atmosphere.
David Good, CEO, Superyacht Australia said, “Although this year has had its challenges, the domestic superyacht market is still growing.”
Sponsors of the Whitsundays ‘Endless Summer Party’ included Coral Sea Marina Resort; Benetti Yachts; Champion Crewing & Concierge; Pantaenius; Gold Coast City Marina & Shipyard; Rivergate Marina & Shipyard; SuperYacht Group Great Barrier Reef; Boatstyle and Quality Marine Clothing.
