Lock in the boat show dates for 2017

2017 is definitely going to be a busy year with the Abell Point Marina (APM) crew attending the major boat shows on the boating calendar and we invite you to come down and visit us at a show in your region and find out what’s new for Abell Point in 2017.

Making the decision to host the Gold Coast Marine Expo in March this year (17 – 19) and not at the same weekend as the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is a wise one from event organizers. Giving passionate boaties adequate time to make plans for the upcoming cruising season, save the date for the GC Marine Expo and make sure you take the time to visit us at stand 94 to discuss your plans for a Whitsunday migration!

This year we have decided to run competition to tie in with the boat shows and to offer one of five incredible marina prize packages to five lucky winners. ‘That’s Gold’ will launch in March and as an ode to our 5 Gold Anchor Global Marina Accreditation, we have five ‘Gold Anchor’ prizes to give away throughout the year. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels, for your chance to win big and experience the Abell Point Marina Blue Carpet Treatment.

The Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is scheduled for the 25 – 28 May this year and we will be exhibiting down in the marina in our usual position on E/F arm. Our ‘That’s Gold’ competition will be running throughout this show also, so look out for the pre-show promotion. For early bird tickets for this show, to be booked before 28 February, could can save up to 30% off the cost of entry.

In August, we will be heading south to brave the Sydney winter weather to exhibit at the Sydney International Boat Show. This year marks the first year back at the Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour after 3 years at Glebe island and promises to be a big year with the marina and indoor exhibition spaces once again being in close proximity. We will be exhibiting down the in the marina again, details of our stand number to be advised.

So, whether you are looking at securing a berth at Abell Point in 2017, you just want some insider knowledge into the best boating tips for the Whitsundays, or you just like checking out all things boating, then pick an expo in your area and come down and have a chat with the APM crew. We can’t wait to see you!
