Abell Point Marina, Cairns Marlin Marina, Crystalbrook Superyacht Marina Port Douglas, and Hamilton Island Marina have joined together as sponsors of the 2018 show with the aim of marketing the Great Barrier Reef as one of the best cruising grounds in the world.
Taking place at the Gold Coast City Marina on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st April 2018, the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous aims to shine an international spotlight on Australia’s capabilities as the next superyacht hotspot.
Trenton Gay, Gold Coast City Marina’s CEO, said, “We are thrilled to have all four of the major Great Barrier Reef marinas on board as sponsors. Their support adds enormous strength to our event and the very strong message we are sending to the global superyacht fleet.
“The Australian Superyacht Rendezvous is about the superyacht industry banding together to put an international spotlight on our amazing country as the ultimate cruising destination and collaborating to attract a larger superyacht fleet to our pristine waters.”
Working as co-sponsors of the event, it will be the first time that the four marinas have worked this closely together to communicate the potential of the world-heritage listed cruising grounds. They will be working under industry association banner Superyacht Group Great Barrier Reef (SYGGBR) to secure the future growth of the superyacht industry in Australia.
Luke McCaul, general manager at the Abell Point Marina, explained that working alongside other quality superyacht marinas in the region is essential to securing increased visitation to the region. He said, “The diversity of the cruising grounds, marina facilities and superyacht support services available to visiting vessels in the Great Barrier region is world-class. If the superyacht industry is smart in promoting our national assets in a collaborative and consistent nature, we will realise our message will emerge stronger and more competitive in the global market.”
Carrie Carter, chair of Superyacht Group Great Barrier Reef, added, ‘As the sole far north Queensland superyacht cluster, the SYGGBR is extremely pleased to announce the collaboration of our four world-class marinas at the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous. By imparting their collective capability and high-end services to the global superyacht fleet, our marinas will also showcase their complimentary itineraries and destinations, encompassing the magic of the amazing cruising grounds of the GBR from North to South.”
