Leigh-Smith Yachts will display an impressive line-up of world-class motor yachts at this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS), where the local Queensland boating family and business is one of only a few to display for all 30 years consecutive years of SCIBS.

A garage in the back deck a can accommodate a sizeable RIB and along with the submersible swim platform makes this boat a versatile and exceptional design from Fairline.
