Think what you may about the Gold Coast marine industry at the moment, but at one of the slowest times in the year, Ensign Ship Brokers are selling boats and big ones at that.
by Amanda Drover
In the weeks since the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, Ensign has sold seven big boats and has a number of their listings under offer.
Ensign broker Adrian Macdonald has been hard at work listing and selling some beautiful boats this month.
'At the moment, I have a Lloyds 100 foot luxury motor cruiser under offer that will be used as a charter,' Mr Macdonald said.
'We’ve also recently listed and sold a 50 foot custom build Key West.'
'Legitimate buyers are coming to us looking for the right boat, and with hundreds of listings on our books, we have been able to source them.'
It’s encouraging for the team at Ensign, who also sold two brand new Beneteau Oceanis yachts off the back of the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.
'It’s really good to see movement in the market during a time when we know people are struggling,' Mr Macdonald said.
Ensign has also sold a 70 foot luxury flybridge West Coaster cruiser, a Meridian 411 flybridge and has a Dyna 51 luxury cruiser under offer.
If your boat has been stagnant for a few months, talk to the team at Ensign to find out what they can do for you.
