Our Mission

Our mission is to deliver the best boating experience in the world. To be different from the traditional boat dealership.

We do this through selling the world’s leading boat brands and by accompanying the boats we sell with the most comprehensive in-house service offering in Australia.

We want to make boating easy, for you, so you can spend more time on the water creating lifelong memories and connecting with the people you love… because that’s what life is about.

Life is short,

Testimonials 

Patrick Delany (CEO Foxtel) - Multiple Boat Owner

“Sam and Ryan Short have looked after my boats for a long time. For those of us that love the water but have busy working lives it’s fabulous to have a team that gets things done first time, so that all you have to do is step aboard on the weekend. The boys have integrity in their DNA and their reliability is rare on the waterfront.”

Our Story

Life Is Short

It’s a cliché quote to most people, that is until they experience a tragic loss of someone close to them. This is what happened to us. We lost our dad suddenly in a yacht racing accident in 2009. He was our father, our boss, our mentor, and an industry icon to the boating world. Thankfully, we have many great memories with him, most of which are on the water, boating with family and friends.

Reflecting on the many lessons learnt, the one that really stands out is understanding the importance of making time to do the things that make you happy, with the people who make you happy. And this is why we do what we do. We strive to deliver the type of boating experience that enables people to continuously create lifelong memories with the people they love. Because after all, life is short.
