Queensland’s biggest boat show at Coomera, the three-day Gold Coast International Boat Show and Marine Expo, this year has a record Fleet of Firsts – all the new-year releases and all in one giant location.

Over 100% of display space has now been confirmed and we are creating additional space within the Boat Show Precinct to cater for demand from many of the world’s leading marine businesses and brands.

Over 600 boats for sale on the water and on land and over 230 exhibitors featuring everything from luxury motor yachts to cruising catamarans, serious fishing boats to lightweight tenders, engines, accessories and equipment to kayaks and jet skis.

You’ll find everything you need to have fun on the water right here at Coomera from Friday-Sunday, 9am-4pm.

We look forward to welcoming you.
