Boab Sets Anchor in sugar country

The leader in Trailerable boat hire – Boab Boat Hire has launched a new franchise this month adding to their already successful 20 locations Australia wide.

The new franchise – Mackay QLD – will be providing locals and tourists with an affordable alternative to boat ownership, with a runabout already in there fleet, Boab Mackay will take delivery of a brand new 6m Centre within a few months.

With endless sandy beaches, ancient reefs teeming with life, the beautiful Great Barrier Reef and islands, the tranquility of lush tropical rainforest and the warmth of the rugged golden hinterland, the Mackay region boost some of the best and most spectacular fishing spots in the country! Whether you enjoy saltwater or freshwater fishing, Mackay offers an array of areas in which you can wet a line including reefs, estuaries, creeks and numerous wellstocked inland dams.

Boab Boat Hire director Paul Gelfius said the company differed from traditional boat hire operations, in that its boats could be towed to any destination for a day, a weekend, a week or longer.

“Hiring a boat through Boab is as easy as hiring a car – customers can tow boats away themselves, or we can even deliver a boat to a specified location and have it waiting on the water for them when they arrive!”

Boab Boat Hire offers the choice of several fully equipped, fuel efficient vessels – a large Centre Cab powered by a Honda 150, a Sports Rider with a Honda 135, a Kimberley All Rounder with a Honda 75, and a Runabout with a Honda 50 – to cater for all general boating requirements. Boats are fitted with quality marine electronics, safety gear and other essential equipment to ensure a safe and enjoyable time on the water.

“We have a very broad range of customers… families on day trips, anglers, couples getting away for the weekend, water sports enthusiasts, divers and everyone in between,” Mr Gelfius said.

Given most boat owners use their boats around 28 days a year, hiring is a viable option to having tens of thousands of dollars sitting in the garage for months at a time. Whatever your boating needs Boab has the boat for you!
