“Always Buying, Consigning and Selling Queensland’s Best Used Boats Since 1964”

Dear Fellow Boatie,

John Crawford Marine has been serving our customers quality used trailer boats since 1964. To this day, over 55 years later we remain more committed than ever before to Buying, Consigning and Selling Queensland's best pre-owned trailer boats. We offer you the largest range of quality, late model, pre-tested trailer boats in Queensland. Our well stocked display yard at 1029 Manly Road, Tingalpa, Brisbane has been designed to allow you convenient inspection of all our boats.

My experienced staff are dedicated to safeguarding you, either a buyers or as a seller, 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, Title searches (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 enjoy with our own families.

If you are considering buying a used pre-owned trailer boat, you are completely looked after from bow to stern, port to starboard. It is company policy that stock regardless if owned by us or on consignment,  go through industry leading pre-sale testing in the workshop. In addition to this testing guaranteed title is assured, boats are always presented clean and tidy and a comprehensive post sales handover is included either on the water or a "dry hendover' .

However, if you are considering selling a used trailer boat, we also make this time consuming and stressful 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.

All in all, my dedicated staff are on hand to make buying or selling a stress free and simple affair. If you are looking for a genuine deal, full disclosure and a business that prides itself on being around for another 50 plus years then look to the focused team at John Crawford Marine – Queensland’s Used Boat Specialists since 1964.
