First and foremost we hustle for you- to make sure your boating dreams come true.
For many of us, a boat is one of the most valuable assets we own, so it makes sense to engage professional buyers’ agents with a lifetime of boating experience and contacts to guide and represent you throughout the buying process and beyond.
Our aim is work solely on your behalf, with your best interests at heart.
We are here to save your most valued commodity, time.
Our primary role is to remove the stress and emotion from this very important and potentially life changing purchase. We start by meeting with you to build a real understanding of what your needs and wants are for your boating world. We advise you on the current market conditions and suggest the best options for you. From here we will formalise a plan to make sure you achieve happiness in boating.
As your buyer’s agent, with our marine industry connections we will search out the best possible boats and inspect them on your behalf. We never just rely on what the boats look like in photograph’s (as we all know that photo’s can be deceiving.) Once we inspect the boats and provide you with a short list of the best opportunities- providing you peace of mind and of course saving your valuable time.
The demand for good quality boats normally outstrips supply. Prime boats can often be sold long before they’re advertised. Armed with your brief, we will talk to our network of dealers and contacts to identify the best opportunities, often before they even come to the market.
PRICE – WE ARE TOUGH NEGOTIATORS
The boat might be right, but is the price? As your buyer’s agent, we use our expert negotiation skills to secure the boat at the best possible price, on terms that work for you.
We will introduce you to the industries leading surveyors, finance, insurance, boat builders, skippers and others to make sure every detail of the vessel and deal is perfect for you. We will also conduct a detail inspection of the vessel prior to settlement to make sure all is as per what was agreed.
Once settlement is complete we will run you through the workings of the boat and how to skipper it.
PARTNERS FOR LIFE
From the day we are appointed we want to be involved in your boating life, from teaching you the running of the boat, introduction to clubs, destinations, insurance, maintenance, and just having fun on your new boat.
I come from a long line of boating enthusiasts and have been boating for the last 52 years. As a child I started sailing catamarans and over the years my family has had alloy, glass, and timber boats – both displacement and planning.
We are currently very proud owners of a 48 foot Riviera.
We have cruised the east coast of Australia and are currently based in SE Queensland. The beautiful Moreton Bay is our playground and my wife and three teenage daughters – and of course our two dogs all love boating.
“Love helping people achieve their boating dreams”
