The spectacular TAG 60 is just one of the multihulls on display at the inaugural Super 60s event from 21-24 May

Expo 2015 (21-24 May) 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 marques, as well as world-class range of brokerage boats.

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.
