Wyld About Boats work with select manufacturers and distributors to offer a range of family and fishing boats, as well as boating equipment in-store and online. The 50,000 sq. ft. warehouse showroom has a range of new and used boats, an in-house service department, and a watersports shop.


Wyld About Boats has one of the largest ranges of used and new vessels under the one roof, all serviced with warranty, and ready for immediate delivery. All serious buyers can take boats for a pre-arranged on-water test drive before purchasing.

For the active family who want to start their day catching fish and finish it with some exciting watersports, a fish-and-ski boat lives up to its name. These boats have built-in conveniences fishing enthusiasts love, like rod holders, a trolling motor, and live wells, and can also provide some great performance when it comes to towing for watersports.

When buying a boat, it is important to consider many things before making a final decision – from the number of people you are going to have in the boat on a regular basis, the water conditions in which you are most likely to use the boat, the budget you have allotted, to the running, maintenance and storage costs.

The fish-and-ski forward-steer runabouts are the perfect family boat, as they have the protection of the windscreen and foredeck, yet still have plenty of cockpit space to fish. Most are fitted with a removable rear lounge for times when the kids are not in the boat.

The bow rider is becoming the must-have all-round boat if you do more family boating, tubing or skiing, exploring or cruising with the odd fishing trip with mates. The drawback is it has an open bow and the rear cockpit is shorter than that in a runabout. If fishing is more your style, then choose the runabout.

If you are heading offshore, your decision requires more thought. The team at Wyld About Boats recommend fibreglass cabin boats, which are popular in the southern parts of Australia, as they provide more shelter from the elements. As a family boat, the cabin space is easily fitted with camper covers and clears, which are perfect for overnight stays out on the water. A well-designed fibreglass boat will outperform most aluminium boats when comparing ride, comfort, quietness and stability.

Wyld About Boats offer a range of used boats of different colour, motor brand and accessories, which have all been serviced and come with a used-boat warranty.
