There’s a boat for every summer budget
Queensland has fast become the nation’s leader in registered recreational vessels and with many different leisure boats out there, boating enthusiasts and wannabes alike have a smorgasbord to choose from.
Managing Director (Sales and Marketing) for The Haines Group, Greg Haines says Queensland’s recreational vessel industry is booming with a rise of 9,000 new vessel registrations in Queensland in the last financial year, accumulating to more than 220,000 vessels on our waters today.
According to Mr Haines, investing in a boat is a solid and worthwhile investment, from both a financial and lifestyle perspective.
