Brisbane Marine is a business on the rise with a growing stable of brands, service and sales second to none, to now offer boaties a one-stop shop for all their boating needs.
A committed group with a passion for the brands they sell and represent, Brisbane Marine have come a long way in three short years. Starting out as a service-only business, Brisbane Marine took their experience in building, running, and servicing Mercury race engines and evolved it into an outboard service business that provided unrivalled experience and expertise.
Today Brisbane Marine is far more than just a service house. With brands such as Mercury, Savage, Streaker Boats, Anglapro, Harris Pontoon Boats, MotorGuide and Profile Boats gracing their yard and showroom floor, Brisbane Marine is the place to go to scratch your boating itch.
With over 100 years of sale and service experience combined under one roof, Brisbane Marine are a Premier Mercury Dealer, an accreditation that means they have the technical skills to work on anything that bares the Mercury name.
“You name it, we can work on it. Whether it’s a 5hp outboard, 250hp Verado, Mercruiser, Diesel Mercury, or Mercury Racing motor, we can take care of it for you,” says Brisbane Marine’s Danny Robinson.
Providing a perfect accompaniment to Brisbane Marine’s service and parts department is the store’s large chandlery section. Danny Robinson explains.
“A diverse well-stocked chandlery is essential in all quality boating shops and at Brisbane Marine we’re very conscious of this. We try and cover the needs of boaties, from the weekend family fisher through to the commercial boater and hardcore angler. We want to make sure when they come in for something that we have it for them.”
With items ranging from things as small as a replacement bung for a tinny through to a new deck winch for your 30ft cruiser, Brisbane Marine’s chandlery is a place that’s likely to have just what you’re looking for. Brisbane Marine isn’t just about servicing and chandlery though and they are distributors for a range of boat brands.
Brisbane Marine started with two boat brands – Streaker and Anglapro – and more recently have expanded their range to include Harris Pontoon Boats, Profile Boats from New Zealand, and Savage Boats from the Telwater stable.
“If you’re looking for a go anywhere rock solid in an aluminium boat, it’s hard to go past an Anglapro, while if you’re looking to step into a glass boat that allows you to go a little wider afield and fish places like Moreton Bay, Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast, then one of the well-built, stylish Streaker boats has your name all over it,” explains Robinson.
Fresh off the boat and new to Brisbane Marine is the Profile brand of boat from New Zealand. Designed to not just handle, but revel in harsh conditions, the Profile range of boats are the perfect combination of strength, comfort and safety. And they’re made with the serious fisher very much in mind. The safety and stability of their pontoon design, combined with the innovative wide deck floor, giving true toe space and sure footing, is a feature unique of Profile boats and helps them standout in their class.
The newest team member to join the Brisbane Marine family is Danny Nichols, a name many may know from Bribie Boats Sales. With eyes for the future and new opportunities, Danny wound up at Brisbane Marine, bringing with him the flagship Savage boat brand and his 40 year experience in the boating industry.
“We’d reached the limits of what we could do at Bribie, and the opportunity to join Brisbane Marine and bring Savage boats with me was a win-win for all involved,” explained Danny.
Savage Boats stands out from the crowd on the boat manufacture scene and as part of the famous Telwater company (their other boat brands include Quintrex and Stacer), they offer Brisbane Marine customers more choice and options than ever before.
“Savage have a long and rich history on the Australian boating scene, and manufacture both aluminium and fiberglass boats made to exacting standards squarely with the Australian consumer in mind.” explained Danny.
Never content to rest on their laurels Brisbane Marine has their sights surely set on the future.
“We’re always on the hunt for new brands, products and services to help take Brisbane Marine to the next level. Our goal is to make it the region’s largest and best boating outlet. We’re just about to expand the size of yard to 2000 sq/m, and will increase the number of boats we have on site by 100, and when you combine that with our large, fully air conditioned, service, parts, sales, and chandlery departments you’re looking at a one-stop boat shop that’s hard to go past,” explains Brisbane Marine’s Troy Wood.
