It's OPEN - This is grand opening weekend for this grand Marina. Workers have now completed the finishing touches to stage one of the $440 million Wyndham Harbour Marina project.
It will be the largest Marina in Victoria, opening up parts of Port Phillip Bay never before accessible to swimmers and boating enthusiasts.
It will also be the new home to our business: St Kilda Boat Sales
For the past 14 years we’ve been operating from St Kilda Marina and now the time is right to expand our wings to cater for the growing boating community in the west.
Shortly after the opening weekends, our new Boat Sales and Chandlery office will open right on Marina Quay, overlooking Marina Square and all of those beautiful boats moored in the water.
Over the past 14 years my business partner Andrew Rose and I have literally sold hundreds of boats. We are an industry Accredited Boat Dealer and have long term fuel contracts with the Water Police and the Coast Guard. Every year we service and repair over 300 boats from our fully equipped workshop at St Kilda, carried out by our team of trained mechanics and marine professionals.
In working with that many boats and that many owners, both Andrew and I have realized there are three main problems that exist:
1. Boat owners are busy people, what they don’t want is a boat soaking up more of their time.
2. Owners don't have the required expertise to problem solve, which makes them nervous about owning a boat.
3. Owners hate having to juggle and coordinate all the different marine services on offer.
What we’ve found is that buyers just want to trust just one company to do everything 'boating' for them.
So that’s exactly where we fit in.....
You can trust our team to take the hassle out of boating. Our expertise takes all of the worry out of boat ownership. From the time you purchase your boat from us we will even teach you and your family how to drive the boat, leaving you feeling confident and comfortable on the water.
We will provide ongoing service and repairs from our St Kilda Marina workshop offering a valet boat delivery service to and from Wyndham Harbour for the residents and boat owners. We’ll also offer a regular mobile cleaning and washing service that will come to your power boat or sailing craft at Wyndham Harbour, to ensure that your boat is always looking good and well-cared for.
The reason both Andrew and I are so passionate about boating is there has never been a better time to get on the water, sharing quality time with family and friends. You know it's all about lifestyle because life is too short.
You can trust us with your safety; you can rely on us to look after all of your boating needs. We just want you to enjoy quality time, so us take care of the rest. Our goal is to make Wyndham Harbour boat owners feel at ease and excited about boat ownership. “We want your precious time on the water to be both complete and pleasurable” says Andrew.
I am well known to the Wyndham Harbour community having been involved in the Marina’s development for several years now. My energy for boating and zest for life is contagious, attracting many to discover the joys of boat ownership.
Andrew and I know our stuff. Many of you listen to ‘The Boat Guy’ <live> on radio 3AW doing my unique Beach N' Bay reports during summer and on TV presenting for the program 'All About Boats' (Foxtel and ch7). I’m also the author of the award winning, bestselling book: Honey, let’s buy a BOAT! and my follow up sequel: Honey, let’s go BOATING! 101 bucket list of boating destinations (Victorian Edition).
I am also a proud Ambassador and Online Presenter for the 'Life's Better With A Boat' campaign and Boating Ambassador for Wyndham Harbour.
To mark the marina opening, we have the first Victorian showing of the newest vessel in the Caribbean fleet, the 420 Express SUV Cruiser will be on display for both of the opening weekends. Proudly Victorian built, the display vessel is fully optioned and perfect for long-range blue water cruising along the east coast of Australia. Our display boat is priced at $831,152.
See you at the marina,
Safe Boating Always
