Greg Walker (General Manager)
Greg has a Four Winns H180 Bow Rider which he uses all around Westernport and Port Phillip Bay, Lake Eildon the Murray River and Gippsland Lakes. With his wife, three Daughters and their partners he finds it’s the ideal all round boat for Wakeboarding, Skiing, Snorkelling and Cruising. It is powered by a 135HP Mercruiser Stern drive engine and comes with full instrumentation, Power steering, Bimini, Front and Rear tonneau covers and a Dunbier full drive on trailer.

This is now four sale at $32000 (replacement $38500)

Brian (Barney) Friend (Senior Boat salesman)
Barney is one of Australia’s best known fishermen His boat of choice is a new model Haines Signature 575 Run about. Barney uses this boat where ever fish can be found from chasing snapper and whiting in Port Phillip and Westernport, Kingfish at Eden, Makos in Bass Straight  and Yellowfin Tuna off Portland. This particular boat is one of the best set up we have ever done. Powered by a 175 Hp Suzuki with Hydraulic steering Electric anchor winch, Stainless steel Targa, Bimini, front and side clears, Stereo, Garman 10; touch screen sounder/gps, side door, Dunbier drive on trailer  and much more. No matter what sort of fishing you do this boat is ideal.

This boat is now for sale and with a replacement cost of over $95,000 it’s a steal at $82,000


Harry Foullas (Laverton Store manager)
Harry is a keen offshore and bay fisherman, he has put together a 6.9 metre Quintrex YellowFinn plate alloy. This is one of the toughest fishing boats on the market, solid plate construction powered by a 200hp etec engine and fitted to a Factory Alloy trailer you won’t find a boat better suited to Bass Straight than this and yet is still ideal for fishing our bays


James Pappas (service manager)
James has a young family and likes nothing better than playing around on our Kawasaki jet skis.
He is fortunate to have a choice of 2 skis to use the fabulous supercharged 300X (300 hp) and the family friendly Ultra Lx (160 hp). With summer fast approaching if Jet Skiing is your go get in soon before stocks run low


The workshop
The boys out the back have 2 boats at their disposal the 1st is a Revival 6.4 Cuddy fitted with a ETEC 150 and Dunbier drive on trailer. As an all-round family boat this is hard to beat, as a boat that is great for fishing water sports or cruising our waterways this ticks all the boxes.

The other boat is a Quintrex 510 top ender fitted with the new A series 90 HP Suzuki and Quintrex alloy trailer it is a fantastic all-rounder and although set up mainly for fresh water use it has been offshore at Bermagui chasing Mako’s and bagged out chasing pinkies in Port Phillip Bay.

When cricketing legend Merv Hughes has spare time this is the boat he uses both for fun and fishing some of Victoria’s fresh water comps.

Fully set up inc an electric trolling engine this boat is now for sale at $42000
