Australian Superyacht Rendezvous has promised one of the largest display of superyachts seen in Australia at the Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard on 17 and 18 May.

Since its inception in 2017, Australian Superyacht Rendezvous has annually assembled an en masse line-up of some of Australia’s finest superyachts and this year the bar has been raised with the addition of a high-profile international yacht. Placing Australia firmly on the superyacht world stage, organisers of the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous have revealed an assembly of vessels including one of the world’s most famous expedition yachts M/Y SuRi.

The annual two-day Australian Superyacht Rendezvous showcases the Australian superyacht industry along with Australia’s destination appeal, marking it as an intrepid travel destination for superyacht charters for luxury holidays. The Australian Superyacht Rendezvous is a showcase of the leading sailing and motor superyachts in the region available for sale and charter. In and around the yacht showcase, there are a number of events for industry professionals, charterers and yacht owners to mingle.

CEO of Gold Coast City Marina and organiser of the Australian Superyacht Rendezvous Trenton Gay says the event will be an impressive $200 million showcase of the finest and most luxurious superyachts currently in Australian waters. “Australian Superyacht Rendezvous will present the most comprehensive and impressive assembly of superyachts ever seen in Australia and it’s an exciting coup to have a renowned international vessel joining our line-up of stellar Australian based yachts,” Trenton said.

Originally from the USA, SuRi is a 63-metre expedition yacht that spends summer cruising the South Pacific and winter in South America. It is equipped with a massage room, helicopter, sea plane, jacuzzi, gymnasium, helipad and a full play-mode toy box of wave-runners, jet skis, kayaks, dive equipment, dune buggy, hovercraft and waterskis.

Trenton added that while some of the yachts had participated in Australian Superyacht Rendezvous previously, there were several making their debut at the event. “These yachts are some of the busiest charter vessels in Australia and it is fantastic for them to take time out of their busy cruising schedules and even cruise interstate to be at Australian Superyacht Rendezvous and help us demonstrate the calibre of superyachts in Australia at the moment,” Trenton said.
