38 South Boat Sales is without doubt the best destination in Melbourne and the Gippsland Lakes for the largest range of new power boats from one of the largest boat manufacturer in the world – Jeanneau.
However we also regularly sell second hand Jeanneau models such as the Merry Fisher, Cap Camarat, Leader, and NC, plus we occassionaly 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.
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, Hastings, Brighton, Geelong, Docklands, Paynesville and Metung. But due to interests in the power catamaran market, we started up new operations in Brisbane in 2021, to sell and commission our Aventura Catamarans into Queensland.
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.
