The new owner of Gold Coast Waverunners, Shaun Hale, is inviting customers to visit the store to check out the 2015 model line on display. Shaun is no stranger to the Yamaha Waverunner business, having worked at the Brisbane Dealership. “When the opportunity arose to buy the Gold Coast Dealership, I thought it was a dream come true. I genuinely believe in the superior quality of the brand and have devoted my life to supporting Yamaha.”

Shaun has retained the enthusiastic staff in the Service Department and has assembled the most helpful Sales Team in the industry. “We are geared towards customer service. Repeat business is the life of this business. The dealership has been here on Brisbane Road Labrador for 22 years, and has seen customers return for service requirements and upgrades to new models.”


Gold Coast Waverunners is a Platinum Yamaha Dealership, having to meet strict criteria and able to offer innovative products, such as Yamaha Motors Finance with very competitive rates and easy approval application forms. Shaun confirms, “Yamaha Marine Insurance provides three-year new-for-old replacement. Only genuine parts are used on any repair. There is no age excess, has fastest turn-around time, and no customer contribution required.”

With a technical background specialising in Yamaha Motors, Shaun declares, “Yamaha has a purpose-built marine engine. Therefore, you will enjoy trouble-free fun, cheaper ongoing maintenance costs, more fuel efficiency—which all means a better resale value when you look at upgrading.”

The Platinum Dealer Program has been developed to highlight dealers who show exceptional levels of customer service for sales and service. Wherever customers see the Yamaha Platinum Dealer logo, they will be guaranteed to receive the highest level of service offered within the marine industry. Gold Coast Waverunners are the preferred supplier for the Gold Coast City Council.


No doubt Shaun loves his time on the water. “Riding Waverunners on the Gold Coast is a great lifestyle and a free-style way to get out on the water to explore destinations. The city’s waterways are some of the best, and the climate means you can be on the water all year round.”

On the popularity of riding Waverunners on the Gold Coast, Shaun explains, “It is affordable. A Waverunner is a lower-cost investment than most boats. The Waverunner is easy for one person to launch and retrieve, and very simple to operate. If you follow the rules and apply common sense, riding Waverunners is very safe. Make sure you always wear the correct safety gear, constantly scan your surroundings, and please take care of the environment.”

Charity Day Run by Tony Mortinson

Three times a year, Gold Coast Waverunner riders invite customers and friends to join them on a Charity Ride Day. In February they gave away over $600 in prizes, and raised $590 for the Animal Welfare League.

The day trek started at the Spit Cove boat ramp early morning, riding north through the Broadwater to Jumpinpin, South Stradbroke, and over to Slipping Sands on North Stradbroke. On the return trip, the Waverunner riders rode through a Mangrove Run and made their way back to Paradise Point for a sausage sizzle and demo rides on the latest 2015 Yamaha Waverunners testing the all-new and exciting RiDE system.

RiDE is really simple to use. The world’s first dual throttle handle bar control system is a great tool to have built into the 2015 Yamaha Waverunners and makes riding a Waverunner even simpler for inexperienced riders. RiDE stands for “Reverse with Intuitive Deceleration Electronics”.
