My experienced staff are dedicated to safeguarding you, our buyers and sellers and ensuring your best interests are advanced at all times.  Behind the scenes we are working tirelessly to remain well informed  of the complicated issues surrounding the used boat/trailer/motor market. These issues can range from Australian Consumer Law changes, the issues surrounding purchasing a grey and parallel import boat, REVS changes now known as PPSR, ADR Trailer compliance issues just to name a few. You can rest assured that my skilled team only stocks quality boats that we ourselves, would want to take our families out on the water in.

If you are considering buying a used trailer boat, you are completely looked after from bow to stern, port to starboard. It is company policy whether stock or consigned, go through rigorous testing both in the workshop and on the water. In addition to this testing guaranteed title is assured, boats are always presented clean and tidy and a comprehensive post sales handover is included.

However, if you are considering selling a used trailer boat, we also make a difficult process simple and hassle free.  Our proven consignment method and marketing strategy, ensures a sale in a short period of time.  If time is of the essence and you are looking for an immediate settlement, John Crawford Marine also provides a wholesale component of the business in which settlement can be completed within 24 hours subject to satisfactory mechanical testing and clear title.
