At Sanctuary Cove Boatshow

24 May 2008 | Sanctuary Cove
Cool again
Andamon at the boatshow. Thats John from CYA looking for another place he can attach a 'Charter Yacht Australia' sticker

After a week in Sydney we return to the Gold Coast where Andamon is being displayed at Sanctuary Cove boat show with John and Annie from Charter Yachts Australia. When Andamon gets to Airlie Beach John and Annie will be her adopted parents for the next 5 years. (Lyn and I have visiting rights).

We are in 'Seawind Corner', with 3 Seawinds on display. We are next to 2 Fusions and 2 Lightwaves plus a 50 foot cat from South Africa, this is truly catamaran heaven. John and Annie have Andamon looking spotless, which after 3 days of people walking all over it is amazing.

The boat show itself seems a little down on numbers. Not surprising given that the economy has had a hit over the past few months, and over the last week the price of diesel has gone through the roof and Sanctuary Cove is the home of diesel guzzling gin palaces.

Maybe everyone will turn up tomorrow (Sunday).
