Organisers of the 2021 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS have announced a precursor event – the Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival scheduled to take place at the vibrant Marine Village from November 13 to 15.

Presented by SCIBS, the Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival aims to whet the appetite of marine enthusiasts in the wake of SCIBS 2020 being postponed.

The event will showcase a broad range of impressive exhibitor displays across both land and water, with some

of the biggest names in the Australian marine industry expected to make an appearance. The Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival will focus on supporting the local marine industry, with South East Queensland brands among those invited to display the latest in boating and fishing.

SCIBS general manager Johan Hasser said while SCIBS will be back better than ever in 2021, the


Cove Boating Festival is an important stepping-stone to help the local industry get back on its feet.

Exhibitor registrations open on Tuesday 28 July.
