I am NOT experienced in boat recovery so the following is just a WAG.
New owners will either want the boat for local (or future) cruising use or want to cruise
away right now.
If the former, it will be around the area in which they live (presumably SE Qld); if the later, most likely destination
for a Qld owner at this time of the year would be heading north. Most cruisers use marinas
sooner or later so contacting every marina from the Gold Coast to Cairns might be a good idea.
A long shot (and perhaps not so easy to do) would be asking Customs
to be on the alert for clearing this apparently registered vessel out of Oz.
If the police are actively involved in the search for it, perhaps they could enlist the aid of Coastwatch????
It is a tough one!
