BRISBANE Marine has become the latest dealer appointed as a fully fledged Streaker Boats dealer.
The appointment is effective immediately and provides Brisbane boaters with access to the new generation of Streaker fibreglass boats. Although Brisbane Marine was founded in 2013 as a high-performance Mercury dealer, the business has evolved to become a major marine dealer in the northern suburbs of Brisbane.
The business is a sole franchise Mercury Outboards dealer, making it an ideal agent to handle the Mercury-powered, factory-rigged range of Streaker boats. Brisbane Marine principal David Trask and manager Troy Wood are ambitious about their future place in the Brisbane marine industry.
“We see ourselves growing steadily to eventually become the biggest and most professional marine dealership in Queensland,” Mr Trask said. “Securing the rights to represent Streaker Boats is an important component in our growth. “Streaker has a huge future and we want to be a part of its growth and expansion in the Brisbane market.”
The popularity of Streaker in the southern states speaks volumes. “This is a well-established brand that is new to Queensland,” Mr Trask said. “Now that the full Streaker range is being built in Brisbane, we think the timing is perfect to become a Streaker dealer.
“We also like it that Streaker Boats now feature the Streaker Composite Build hulls, which are 100 percent timber free. “The all-Australian manufacturing sits very comfortably with us too.” According to Streaker Boats dealer manager Peter Benston, the appointment of Brisbane Marine to stock and sell the Streaker range is a coup.
“This is a great opportunity for both Brisbane Marine and Streaker Boats,” Mr Benston said. “We are impressed that David Trask and Troy Wood are ambitious and want to be a part of our foray into the Brisbane market. “Our production is ramping up at Streaker and our distribution channels are mirroring our boat, motor and trailer approach.
“At Streaker, we are committed to delivering to our dealers turn-key Streaker boats with an Easytow trailer and Mercury outboard rigged and fitted to the transom. “Brisbane Marine is a quality Mercury dealer that has embraced the BMT stocking and selling approach.
“BMT packaging is good for the customer, stress-free for the dealer and the preferred manufacturing path for Streaker.” Brisbane Marine plans to stock a number of Streaker models across the range. “This is a great appointment and we are delighted to have Brisbane Marine as a key member of our dealer group,” Mr Benston said.
