welcomes new site sponsor - Portsea Marine

Hi Guys,

Please make welcome our new site sponsor -Portsea Marine.  You will see them about the site, please feel free to contact them with any enquiries.  Below is a blurb about what they do and who they are.



Portsea Marine was founded by Director Justin Harris (myself) with the goal of importing quality USA built boats to the Australian boat buyer in an easy, simple, safe and hassle free way. 

We pride ourselves on doing business in an honest and upfront manner; we like to keep everything above board for our customers. Primarily supplying quotes that are comprehensive and include everything required from start to finish without any hidden or last minute charges. The client can then choose how much or how little they would like us to handle.

By conducting our business this way it helps people be aware of the true costs of importing and enables them to make an educated decision before purchasing.

We can manage every step of the import process and talk to our clients at any time during their shipment. We operate our head office out of Australia with a sub office in Florida, USA. By having done so for many years we have built an amazing network of like minded companies that meet our high standards throughout both countries.

Although we are primarily a shipping company due to our extensive years of boating experience and knowledge of the USA boat market we also provide the following Boat Import Services:

* Supply of Australian Compliant Aluminium Trailers prior to shipping that carry an Australian Based Warranty.

* International Funds Transfers at better than Bank Rates.

* Assistance in Terms of Boat Brand Knowledge.

* Pre-Purchase Surveys.

* Competitive Roll on Roll Off, Direct Service Shipping Rates.

* Inland Transport service from Point of Purchase to USA Shipping Port.

* Cleaning and Shrink Wrap Service pre Shipment.

* Trailer Import Approval Application Preparation

* Customs and Quarantine Clearance in Australia.

* Port Arrival Inspections

Portsea Marine has worked hard to earn a great reputation for quality service and advice on which we pride ourselves.
