Swan Super Lines and Hurricane Boats Australia, both well-known boat brokerages located in Sanctuary Cove in Queensland, have joined forces to create a new partnership called Sanctuary Cove Boat Sales.

The new partnership will see a more expansive and expert brokerage that unites the best of the two companies, creating a mega offering for clients. Swan Super Lines will become a branch of Sanctuary Cove Boat Sales, with director Ian Swan teaming up with Brett and Grant Flanagan and Paul Atallah of Hurricane Boats Australia based at Sanctuary Cove Marina.

“With Sanctuary Cove Boat Sales, we have formed a mega-marine consultancy that caters to all facets of boating,” said Ian Swan. “Over the years, we have worked together on many projects, including new boats, brokerage, charter and custom-builds, and this new arrangement cements our alliance.”

The new partnership will see a wide range of marine professionals come together, which will provide access to a wide network of marine professionals, including yacht brokers Colin Cox, Ian Jefferson, captains, crew and marine services, repair and maintenance experts, graphic designers, marketing, media and online specialists.

Brett Flanagan said the partnership represents “a fantastic opportunity for clients of both SSL and SCBS”.

“Boaties, whether buying or selling, can rely on our expertise to find the right boat at the right price,” he said. “We attend international yacht shows and have the world’s top brands at our fingertips, as well as the expertise and experience to oversee custom builds anywhere in the world.”

Swan Super Lines brings an impressive line-up to the table, including an international network comprising Benetti Yachts, Intrepid boats from the US, Stilecatalini superyacht tenders and day boats, and Lloyd Ships for new builds as well as brands such as Horizon, Sunseeker and Princess.

Brett and Grant Flanagan and Paul Atallah, directors of Hurricane Boats Australia, bring to the table their extensive experience in boat building and sales, particularly specialising in pontoon and deck boats and especially familiar with the Intrepid Motor Yacht brand. They bring with them brands such as Focus and Powerplay which will now excitingly fall under the Sanctuary Cove Boat Sales umbrella.
