Haines Hunter is pleased to announce the addition of Marine Care Queensland as their newest dealer. This new appointment will provide the greater part of Brisbane and Gold Coast fishing and boating enthusiasts an exceptional dealer to test and purchase a Haines Hunter vessel.

General Manager Alan Riesenweber comments, “Our primary goal at Marine Care Queensland has been to align ourselves with a small number of strong and prestigious brands that fit our business model. We pride ourselves on delivering a first class buying experience and exceptional after sales service. We see Haines Hunter as the best-known boat brand in this country and to have them associated with our business is a perfect match. Haines Hunter has a very strong following in Queensland, which dates back to the late 1950’s.”

Marine Care Queensland will be able to display Haines Hunter boats at their large bayside showroom, enabling buyers the opportunity to drive a Haines Hunter prior to purchase and ensure they choose the model that best suits their needs.

Haines Hunter Managing Director John Haber says, “The timing could not be better as in the last 24 months we have released six new models that are perfectly suited to the Queensland market. One of these being our 675 Enclosed which uses the same hull as the 675 Offshore range which won the Trade-a-Boat Magazine ‘Best Fibreglass Fishing Boat’ award. We have also released the 725 Range in the offshore, R Series and the Enclosed versions, and the New 760 Enclosed. Marine Care will be able to deliver Haines Hunter Yamaha packages with fantastic service to our customers.”

Alan further states, “We are minutes from the boat ramp and can take customers out for a sea trial with no fuss. The ability to have a customer on the water in quick time is where the Haines Hunter brand comes into its own with its exceptional handling and offshore performance. This is something that any potential buyer will greatly appreciate as it instills a strong sense of confidence and security with their purchase. This is really what we want our buyers to experience, and we can efficiently deliver that.”


At Haines Hunter, we understand that boat owners are constantly looking forward. While each boat we release is of the highest standard, many anglers and boat owners outgrow their vessels and want to upgrade to larger models.

What Haines Hunter can offer current owners and potential buyers is the power of resale; and with a Haines Hunter it’s very powerful. Our 60 years of design excellence and high quality craftsmanship have made us one of the most sought after and researched boats on the second hand market. A Haines Hunter can still hold excellent value even 10, 15 and 20 years after purchase.

Managing Director John Haber emphasises, “At Haines Hunter, we make boats to last and each model has an almost cult following on the boat and fishing scene. This is what provides buyers with the ability to sell their current model at a great price and then upgrade into a new Haines Hunter. We have countless customers that are in their third or even sixth Haines Hunter and while that’s a testament to the quality of the boat, it’s the excellent resale value that allows them to keep upgrading.”

Many of the design and build processes at Haines Hunter are unique to the industry and are put in place to allow decades of marine use. Whether you’re buying a boat for life or you’re looking to upgrade, Haines Hunter’s resale value offers buyers the luxury of choice.

Marine Care Queensland is open six days a week at 30 Gordon Road, Redland Bay QLD 4165 and is looking forward to getting you out on a Haines Hunter for an offshore trial.
