38 South Boat Sales is without doubt the best destination in Melbourne, Adelaide and the Gippsland Lakes for the largest range of new yachts and power boats from one of the largest boat manufacturer in the world – Jeanneau.
However we are also the clear market leaders in second hand yacht sales for not only Jeanneau, but also brands such as Dufour, Elan, Catalina, Beneteau, Hanse and Bavaria, plus we always have a variety of inboard and outboard power/fishing boats for sale from brands such as Riviera, Prestige, Haines Hunter, Streaker, Wellcraft, Glastron, Bayliner, Searay, Mustang and Four Winns.
But due to the huge growth our business is seeing in the cruising and racing multihull market, in late 2020 we started up new operations in Brisbane at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, to sell and commission our Aventura Catamarans into Queensland as well as focus on high performance catamarans such as the Extreme 40 and M32.
Originally starting out as VicSail Melbourne, the business is one of the longest established yacht and power boat brokers in Australia. However around 2012, the name was changed to 38 South Boat Sales which is more reflective of the latitude that is synonymous with the heart of boating in Victoria and was also taken over by former multiple Moth World Champion and twice ISAF World Sailor of the Year finalist Rohan Veal.
Since then the business has grown substantially now covering marinas such as Sandringham, Williamstown, Martha Cove, Blairgowrie, Patterson Lakes, St Kilda, Brighton, Paynesville, Metung, North Haven and now Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in Brisbane. We also have well over 300 years of combined staff boating experience which includes over 5 x World Titles, countless National Titles, and 20 x Sydney to Hobarts races.
Feel free to ask around and you will quickly find that this level of service, experience and qualifications is unprecedented. We are also members of the BIA (Victoria) and are one of the few boat brokers in Melbourne that have a Second Hand Dealers licence.
We are also very environmentally conscious, with our Chelsea Heights office fitted with a 6Kw optimised solar panel system leaving an almost neutral CO2 footprint, we pay to recycle all of our plastic, paper and packaging materials, as well as collecting aluminum cans and donating them to help raise money for kids with cancer.
We know boats, we own boats, we race boats and we only offer honest advice to customers and boat owners.
