Australian show reports attendance increase

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show last week in Gold Coast, Australia, saw a spike in sales and solid leads, though attendance was up only 1.6 percent.

Brett Thurley at Pacific Motor Yachts — a dealer for Clipper, Jeanneau and Prestige — said results were better than he had hoped.

“I gauge a boat show on response on the Monday,” Thurley said. “Sometimes people are really keen on the weekend, then pull back the week after. But we have been busy doing sea trials and the leads we have are serious.”

“We have made more at this show than any other, topping $100,000 in sales during the four days. We are very happy indeed,” said Steven Quan, of Dometic/Seabreeze Industries, distributor of Dometic, Cruisair, Sealand and Sovereign products and accessories.
