Boat show with so much more, Gold Coast International Marine Expo

Expo ahoy – and it’s the biggest Expo ever!

Expo has confirmed that this week’s colossal-sized showcase of all things aquatic will be the biggest Expo ever, with a record number of over 220 Expo exhibitors across the event’s biggest-ever display circuit.

In fact the giant 3km display circuit spans 5 key event sites, 3 massive marinas and over 50 hectares right in the heart of the biggest recreational shipyards and boat-builders in the country.

But, wait: ‘the boat show with so much more’ has …. even MORE!


Expo 2015 also has more large and luxurious sailing and motor yachts, plus more boats of all shapes and sizes, on display and for sale than ever before.

In fact, the spectacular Super 60s showcase of luxurious 60ft multihulls is just one of many Expo exclusives – also among them are the biggest Australian boat show displays from some of the world’s leading luxury motor yacht manufacturers.

Expo will also have the biggest line-up of trailer boats in Queensland this year, including the biggest-ever boat show display from the very popular Quintrex range, which is exclusive to Expo … and instant water tests of tinnies too.


Expo will also offer more family fun attractions and interactive demonstrations every 15 minutes throughout the Expo precinct – everything from adrenalin-pumping on-water demonstrations and the thrilling EX-HD high-divers presented by McDonald’s South East Queensland restaurants … to FREE sailing for kids and adults, a novel navigational market challenge using an amphibious boat, right through to working boatyard demonstrations, cooking and fishing demonstrations.

Expo visitors can also step aboard Notorious the rare replica 15thCentury caravel at its first boat show appearance ever, as well as the 79ft guardian of the Great Barrier Reef, the patrol catamaranReef Ranger that will be open to the public for the first time ever, also exclusively at Expo.


And all that’s is in addition to exclusive factory tours of the biggest yacht and aluminium boat-builders in the southern hemisphere.

“We’ve got a vast array of and Australian product premieres … and many of them you won’t be able to see anywhere else but at Expo,” says Event & Marketing Manager Emma Milne.

“In fact there’s so much more to se and do at Expo, you will need more than a full day to experience and enjoy everything there is on offer.”


Visitors can come to Expo by car, boat or helicopter and, once here, can enjoy free cruising between the Expo marinas via licensed ferryQueenslander with free onboard entertainment.

There are 3 waterfront restaurant dining destinations, and international food court and even a new ‘Island Bar’ to celebrate your new purchase, or to simply relax and enjoy even more free live entertainment.
