Melbourne Boat Sales Effected By Queue Nightmare
“Up to 4 hours waiting time to launch a boat at Patterson Lakes and no place to park the car and trailer and get a parking ticket to top it off”. Plus you get aggressive behaviour from impatient boaties if your a beginner who does not know how to back a trailer into the water which is very intimidating. Police have been called as a result of punch up with angry boaties venting their frustration.

Melbourne Boat Sales effected by a four hour wait at the ramp for many years and its getting worse!
It has been identified that the Victoria Government , does not have an effective plan to address the infrastructure needs of the trailer boat owners. Currently, there is no agency or government department handling the responsibility and adequate resources for planning the needs of Melbourne’s recreational boat owners. Boat sales is hampered by lack of infrastructure spending with boat owners giving up waiting at queues at boat ramps. The Government is stealing $21 million dollars in boat license fees and registrations not putting it back into the Boating industry.
Market research shows that there are over 2,200 registered trailer boats in Victoria. If at least 3% of those boats go on the water on the same day, you may get a nasty surprise- long queue at the boat ramps during summer, as the infrastructure is not able to handle the influx. Trailer boat owners wait up to two hours from 2:00 am in the morning just to get their boat launched. There is also a lack of parking facilities with trailers. Worse news is about the council fining the car owners with trailers.
Believe it or not? Go to any of the most popular boat ramps on a weekend and witness the frustrations of trailer boat owners. Many of them, after a while, just give up and leave their boats in the garage. There has been a government policy vacuum over many years regarding infrastructure spending in Melbourne. Looks like the boating community has been ignored. You just have to look at the boats for sales churn rate. Research shows that the churn rate is such that boat owners put up their boat for sale in Melbourne after two years.

The great thing about our luxury boating club in Melbourne is you can enjoy the “wet berth” facility. Step on and off on a range of cruisers without the waiting times. It means more time of luxury boating. If you think of Pleasure Cruising like a golf club and its subscription based to play golf instead of buying a golf course , you have the right picture in mind. No huge upfront payment is required just pay by the month. Join the Club
