Gold Coast Boating Centre Expands

In May 2015, David Edwards and Scott Mahon took ownership of the long-established Marine Tune in West Burleigh. The pair saw the potential to develop the business into an integrated boating centre and three years later they are proud to announce their vision is now a reality.

“The fact that we now have all the sales and service facilities in the one location is the catalyst for the new name change to GOLD COAST BOATING CENTRE, which better describes the business as the one-stop boating centre that it is today,” David explains.



Gold Coast Boating Centre recently increased their showroom space within their sales and service location, to display popular Stessl, Horizon, Sea-Rod and Stessco aluminium boat brands. Scott says, “This increase in capabilities creates a total of 3000 metres of floor space over three indoor showrooms and an outdoor yard within the centre, housing more than 80 new and used boats for sale.”

The new workshop expansion enables scheduled servicing and repairs of up to 10 boats at any one time. The workshop team comprise qualified factory trained technicians with over 50 years of combined outboard experience.

“The service centre is an authorised Yamaha outboard service centre. We can also conduct annual service and repairs to all brands of outboard motors on the market.” There is also a chandlery and a genuine Yamaha parts facilities, as well as an area devoted to late model quality used boats, which are sold with a comprehensive workshop inspection report, for peace of mind.

David welcomes new and existing customers to visit and see the new facilities for themselves.



Gold Coast Boating Centre has been servicing Gold Coast boaties for over 20 years. In that time, the business has established itself as one of the top three Yamaha outboard marine dealers in Australia. The long-running commitment to the remarkable Yamaha range of engines bolsters Gold Coast Boating Centre’s line-up of class leading mid-range outboards and boats.

The Gold Coast Boating Centre was recently awarded Formosa Boat’s “Dealer Of The Year 2017”, with outstanding sales of the popular Sea-Rod range of aluminium-plated boats. Scott says, “Designed with versatility and practicality in mind, Formosa Sea-Rod boats should be the first choice for serious fishos.”

Dunbier Trailers also awarded the company as Queensland’s only “Elite Dealer” in appreciation of excellent sales and customer service. David affirms, “This recognition also provides Gold Coast Boating Centre with trading privileges, such as highest priority production and best possible discount structure on trailers and parts, and ongoing support, which can all be passed on to our customers.”


If you want to get into boating or to upgrade an existing boat, Gold Coast Boating Centre stocks all sizes, ranging from small 3m cartopper tinnies to the larger aluminium- plate-built boats longer than 7m. Dedicated staff will advise and explain all types of configurations available for viewing.

David leaves you with one important thought that guarantees your family’s safety and happiness on the water. “Once you have purchased a boat from Gold Coast Boating Centre, you can rest assured that our professionally trained technicians will be servicing your boat in one of the largest and most expertly equipped workshops in Queensland. Your boat will provide best performance in any conditions at sea.”
