"We brought our first boat and could not be anymore happier with the service we received. From the time we walked in and spoke to Josh then Beck to do all our finance and then Chris to do the handover and run down on how to look after it all, happened within a week of us looking. An amazing team you have here and would definitely be back and recommending to everyone."

Matt and Chris from John Crawford have been amazing! From the first time we popped in late one Saturday afternoon to the time we picked up our boat the whole team have been nothing short of helpful. They really care about what you're after in a boat and take the time to go through things with you. There was no sales jargon and no pressure to buy anything; unlike some other boat business's around. The sale went smoothly and I feel like if anything was to go amiss they would be there to help sort out the issue. Thanks.
Chris Jones
Highly professional and friendly team. Made the process of selling my boat a breeze and Matt kept me in the loop regarding the sale. If you're selling a boat or looking for a second hand boat, then JCM are your first port of call. There's a reason why they have been around for so long.
Simon Watson

M. Simon
"I had the good sense to approach John Crawford Marine and have them market my boat, the interview with Matthew Hodson was very encouraging and the paper work was very thorough, his manner was positive and optimistic.

He assured me that boat would be sold within a short space of time, which it was.

I have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone who would like to buy or sell a trailerable craft, big or small."
Ray and Rosana Smith
"Hi Matthew,

Just a short note to thank you and your staff for the wonderful service we received from your company on the purchase of our Stacer 549 Easyrider.

Your staff were so obliging, not only on the sale of the boat, but in the subsequent sea trial and Chris was a wealth of knowledge and was happy to share his experience with us.

Robert was a great help in getting the boat to our house and we would have no hesitation in recommending John Crawford Marine to our friends and family."
D. Brinn
"Hi Mathew,

Just a word of thanks for your assistance on my boat purchase from you and your team.

I am located in Cairns and made the decision to purchase over the net and by phone from you due to your years in the boat business . Your professional team and yourself made the process seamless and all the question answered with relevant Photos .

I would do this again in a heartbeat as risk free and great delivery process. I am more than happy with the boat as more than meets my expectations.

If others wish advise re long distance purchasing from you I am more than happy to be a reference thanks again great work."
