More than 40 local and international brand names took part in the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club's annual boat show held last weekend in Castle Peak Bay. The brands included Azimut, Benetti, Pershing and Fairline.

About 60 of the latest boat models were on display, with prices ranging from $300,000 to $60million, and a series of fashion shows was held in conjunction with the event.

The Christian Dior Spring Collection 2006 featured top model Janet Ma and other well-known models aboard a 55-foot Sunseeker yacht.

The Lane Crawford Swimwear Show 2006 had top models such as Samantha Chau and Queenie Chan modelling on a British 52-foot Fairline boat. And the Wonderful Arts Wedding Gown and Evening Show 2006 featured models wearing the latest wedding and evening gowns against a background of luxurious Jaguar cars.
