New Marine Centre Opens on the Sunshine Coast 

Sunshine Coast boaters and ski riders are the big winners with the opening of the Coast’s newest marine dealership, Sunshine Coast Yamaha, at Warana.

Sunshine Coast Yamaha Building: 14 Machinery Avenue, Warana, 4575.

Offering a strong line-up of new Stessco aluminium boat packages, Yamaha outboards and Yamaha WaveRunners – Sunshine Coast Yamaha has everyone covered, from the casual family boater and ski rider to the hardcore offshore fishermen and thrill seeker.

Purpose built showroom and state of the art service centre.

Located in a brand new purpose-built building, the dealership has been designed around a modern vehicle dealership, with a massive range of boats, outboards and WaveRunners all housed undercover in a family friendly showroom.

The dealership is co-owned by seasoned businessmen and Yamaha devotees, Grant Fordyce and Stephen Dold.

Grant Fordyce said, “We set out to design a unique customer experience rarely seen in the marine industry, with lounges, coffee facilities and all our marine products completely under cover.

“Our aim is to make families just as comfortable coming into a marine dealership as the most experienced boater.’

The dealership offers customers a complete one-stop shop, including Yamaha finance and insurance, a state-of-the-art full-service mechanical workshop, and a strong marine parts and accessories range covering all the big name marine electronics and equipment brands.

“As part of the customer experience we will also be launching personal watercraft ride days which will be open to all ski brands, not just Yamaha. This is a great way for owners to meet other likeminded people in a fun and social environment.

“We will also be offering on-water testing of boats and WaveRunners, which gives our customers the chance to try-before-they-buy, ensuring they are matched to the right vessel for long-term boating enjoyment,’ Grant said.
