Where to Buy a Used Boat in Melbourne

Monday, Aug 24, 2015 at 12:09


The city of Melbourne and its surrounds has many great spots where you can enjoy a day out on the water. You can make your way around the pretty Port Phillip Bay (a huge area cover over 1900 square kilometres), or explore the iconic Yarra River. There are also popular nearby destinations such as Geelong, Queenscliff, Williamstown, Martha Cove and Portarlington to discover.

If you’re keen to buy a boat over the coming months so that you can enjoy weekends and other times out on the water, then why not consider purchasing an affordable second-hand boat instead of a brand new one? Used boats might be just a few months old, or range up to “classics” that have been enjoyed by owners for decades.

Either way though, second-hand vessels have already seen through the major part of depreciation, which is a bonus, and can also be purchased straight away, with no waiting around for build time. Read on for a few places in and around Melbourne where you can shop for a pre-loved boat today.

Gumtree Australia
Gumtree is one of the top trading spots for second-hand items in Australia, so as you would expect it also lists plenty of used boats for sale. Search online at this well-established site and you’ll find pretty much every type of brand, make, and model you might be looking for, in all types of price ranges. When you find vessels you’re interested in, simply message the seller with your queries and then arrange a time to inspect the boat and see it in person.

To make the search easier, Gumtree’s platform lets users look for items in their own (or nearby) suburbs, as well as searching by keywords, price range, brand and more. You can sort results by lowest to highest price, or by newest listing, and also search for boats that have been listed at fixed prices, negotiable rates, to give away, or to trade for other goods.

All About Boats
If you are in the market for a top-class vessel for yourself or as part of a group, you might want to check out All About Boats. Based in the Docklands area, in the inner-city of Melbourne, All About Boats sources luxury yachts and other boats for keen buyers in and around Victoria. The business specialises in brands such as Azimut and Sealine motor yachts, as well as Tartan sail boats.

Leisure Sports Marine
Take a drive to the Mornington Peninsula, a little way south of Melbourne (around an hour’s drive), and you can check out the range at Leisure Sports Marine. This family owned and operated company has been selling boats on the Peninsula for close to two decades. The business can help buyers find vessels to suit their requirements, whether they’re looking for family cruisers, water-skiing or wakeboarding boats, or fishing tinnies.

Warragul Marine Centre
Another spot just around an hour’s drive from Melbourne is the Warragul Marine Centre, in the town of Warragul. This business has been running since 1970, and specialises in the sale of Savage aluminium boats, as well as Mercruiser sterndrives, and Mercury outboard boats.
