Thorough, professional & friendly

Can't praise Aaron enough over his pre-purchase survey of our Bayliner 2455. Thorough, professional & friendly he even invited me along for the survey which I was glad to do as I learnt some things about boats I did not know.

The survey as well as peace of mind even saved me money as I was able to negotiate some more off the price of the boat. The survey was also accepted by my insurance company as a pre requisite to my policy (boat over 10 years old).

Boatbuy Inspections and Lessons - Your best investment for your boat!

Reviewed Aug 2017
I have used the services of Boatbuy twice now and it’s been the best investment I’ve made on the water.

I went to buy another boat recently and Aaron came along for the inspection and fully inspected the motor and ran compression tests to make sure everything was good. He did a full check of the boat to make sure everything was structurally sound and also jumped in for a water test.

I’ve seen a few boats for sale and there are duds out there so if you don’t know what you’re looking at or even if you do but need that reassurance, I can’t recommend the boat buying services of Aaron enough.

What I wanted was some honest, experienced advice to make sure the boat was worth buying and this is exactly what I got. You get a no-nonsense friendly approach from someone that takes the time to explain exactly what you’re buying and whether it’s worth the purchase or not.

Sure, I could’ve just risked it but it’s not worth the gamble when you’re spending so much on a boat already. Also, gives me peace of mind that I don’t have to swim back to shore because my boat might break down.

I also used Boatbuy lessons when I bought my previous boat. It’d been many years since I’d been on the water so I really needed the lessons and the extra confidence and that’s exactly what Aaron provided.

He teaches you all you need to know to feel confident and safe on the water. Everything from tying a basic knot for docking, launching & retrieval, anchoring as well as safely navigating the rivers of Sydney Harbour. The lessons aren’t structured rigidly and he adapts the lessons based on your level of knowledge and the environment around you.

I spent the day out on the water with Aaron and it’s remarkable how much you can learn just by having a guide giving you lessons and tips along the way. Little things such as do’s and don’ts really help and having someone patient guide you makes you all the more confident to be out on the water. The best thing about it is that it’s private lessons on your own boat which makes a huge difference.

A great communicator and skilled and patient teacher, I couldn’t recommend Boatbuy lessons enough. Even if it’s just a few hours with him on the water, the knowledge and confidence you’ll gain makes it really worth it.

Happy boating!
Very friendly and knowledgeable

Boat Survey and Lessons

Reviewed Nov 2016
Aaron was absolutely fantastic to deal with from beginning to end. The quality of his detailed report prior buying our boat was outstanding. Aaron was prompt, flexible and above all was great to spend time with us to get to know all about our boat. Now we feel much more confident, as he is extremely experienced.
Everything: reliability, professionalism, quality and value.

I called Aaron for some general info on boat inspections. He was very helpful, and spent some good time with me on the phone sharing his knowledge. I engaged him to inspect the boat, which he did and promptly provided me with a good report which the current owner of the boat and I both thought was very thorough and helped in my decision. Can't recommend highly enough.

Absolutely Brilliant

Reviewed Aug 2017
I engaged BoatBuy from March 2017 to assist me in buying an express cruiser for myself and my family. Aaron was an endless source of advice and help during this process. He promptly responded to all my queries and gave advice on all the (many) boats on my Shopping List. This advice turned out to be invaluable as most of the boats on my list turned out to have potential flaws that I never would have picked up. Despite being overloaded with my many questions, Aaron was patient and detailed in all his correspondence.

Aaron ended up doing two surveys for me. The first was on a Queensland boat that was found to have too many defects for my liking. The second was in July, on a boat I ended up purchasing. Both surveys proved to be spot on and beneficial – especially in negotiating on the boat I ended up purchasing.

Throughout the many months I dealt with Aaron looking for my perfect boat, he was always generous with his time 7 days a week, day and night. He is now my “expert” when it involves anything nautical.

I can’t recommend BoatBuy highly enough.

Happy Boating!
