Two of Victoria’s longest established marine industry identities, Tim Pratt and Andrew Burns, have joined forces in a new venture called Victorian Boat Sales, which will be the official Maritimo and Mustang dealership in the State.

Maritimo sales and marketing manager Greg Haines said the company was delighted with the appointment and was confident that the duo would see a significant lift in the number of Maritimo and Mustang vessels sold in Victoria.

'Tim and Andrew have been around the marine industry for many years and their expertise, professionalism and network of contacts will be invaluable for us as we continue to expand our business,' he said.

'They pride themselves on honesty and customer service so they fit perfectly with our corporate philosophy.'

Victorian Boat Sales is located at the Patterson Lakes Marina and is a Boating Industry Association Member. The company has on site qualified marine engineers and antifouling, detailing and fibreglass capabilities.

Tim Pratt was 17 years with JV Marine where he was responsible for the Mustang brand. He then started work with Mustang Victoria, a direct factory owned dealership and following a year there he owned and operated Patterson Lakes Boat Sales for the past three years.

Andrew Burns was with JV Marine for 23 years, also involved with Mustang and senior management and spent the last five years with R Marine Jacksons-Victoria Riviera dealership.

'We launched Victorian Boat Sales in late March and we are delighted to have been able to secure the dealership for Maritimo and Mustang in Victoria,' said Tim.
'We are very familiar with both brands and we know the quality and the integrity that they represent so for us it is a perfect fit.'

VBS is a Club Marine insurance agents and also offers competitive boat finance.

'We also include full tuition for buyers of all vessels sold and pride ourselves on honesty and ethical dealings with all customers or prospective customers,' said Tim.

VBS representation of the Maritimo and Mustang brands in Victoria is effective immediately.
