Drop Anchor in Queensland’s Boating Paradise

Hi-Octane Marine are proud to announce they are the newly appointed Wellcraft/Scarab Offshore Fishing Boats, and Glastron Bowrider and Sports Cruisers family boats dealer for Queensland. Located at Runaway Bay Marina on the Gold Coast, they have convenient direct access to the Broadwater and the Gold Coast Seaway, only 1.5 NM away for offshore testing conditions.

Hi Octane Marine boast a unique set-up with up to eight new boats ready to water test at any one time. Each boat will be positioned on floating docks rigged up and ready to go. In theory, a perfect scenario would see the customer visit the office in the morning, decide what stock boat they like, pay their deposit (subject to a water test), and then take the boat home that same day.

Hi Octane Marine also provide a multitude of facilities, including wet and dry berths, hard stand and covered work spaces, in addition to the RMC Service Centre to install electronics, antifoul, and any other accessories customers desire. All these facilities make Hi Octane Marine your one-stop-shop when seeking a new boat. Hi Octane also specialize in used boats of all sizes and offer a full brokerage service.

Tim Stessl heads the Hi Octane Marine team. He has been involved in the marine industry for over 25 years. His experience extends to both manufacturing and sales. His manufacturing expertise is in the alloy and fibreglass boat market, ranging in size from 10ft to 40ft. More recently, he has been specializing in the sale of American-built offshore boats from some of the largest and well-known manufactures in the industry. He has chosen the Wellcraft and Glastron brands due to their 60+ years of continuous innovation, and due to their new ownership by the Beneteau Group, the largest manufacturer of both power and sailing boats in the world, giving them the buying power to produce a first- class boat, yet still at an affordable price point.


WELLCRAFT/SCARAB BOATS. Wellcraft/Scarab boats have dominated the offshore racing circuit since the 1980’s, and the Scarab Centre Consoles have graced our TV screens on both Miami Vice and Baywatch. This, coupled with the heritage of these boats, saw Hi Octane Marine jump at the opportunity to sell these great all- round boats. From offshore fishing days with oversized live well and kill tanks, through to the family days out on the bay, with the infill cushions, onboard toilet, fresh water sinks, showers, and not to forget your favorite tunes playing through the stereo system. What could be better?

Hi Octane Marine have the full range of Wellcraft Centre Consoles in stock and on display.


GLASTRON BOATS. If family overnight cruising or days out at your favorite lake or island is your escape, then Glastron Boats are just the boat for you. They have just released an all-new 2018 range, with both outboard or stern drive power options, from 18ft Bowriders, 20ft and 22ft Deck Boats through to the all-new 259 Outboard powered Sports cruiser that has generator and air- condition option, as well as sleeping for four adults and a full-size enclosed toilet and shower.

In the Glastron range, Hi Octane Marine have 180 GT Bowrider, 180 GTS Bowrider, 200 GTD Deck Boat, 200 GTDX Deck Boat, and GS 259 OB Sports Cruiser – all arriving in time for the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
