Hi Rod, Just want to say thanks for putting such an awesome ride together. We took her out over the weekend and ran it in. Took her out into the bay on Saturday, weather was shit and it handled it extremely well, same on Sunday but the difference was that we could open her up and I was blown away at how well it handled the conditions. Cant wait to get out and do some fishing. See you when we have done another 15 hours for the first service.

Thanks Rod , all good , mate. Have not been out much. Just once went to Jumpinpin passage and caught a couple of schoolie mackerels. The boat and motor are awesome.
Sunny and Dan (owners of a Bar Crusher 615C), August 2020
Hey Rod! Mate the boat has been an absolute delight! It’s had its first service and every time I take it out I’m more and more impressed. I’ll have it for the next 10 years comfortably as it’s perfect for what we do!
Aaron A (owner of Aquamaster 550 Centre Console), August 2020
Thanks Rod, our 2nd boat with AMC and you guys always deliver, cheers mate!
Mark S, July 2020
Thanks to all the team at AMC really love my bar crusher 615wr, still learning how to use it being a complete novice. All my dealings with Rod, Julie and Lisa have been really clear and positive, willing to help me with everything that’s been involved in getting my boat. Got all the insurances and warranties sorted, club marine, Suzuki and bar crusher.
Thanks Rod B, July 2020
Thanks Julie, I’ve really appreciated your help, thank you, it’s nice to see real service these days. It’s missing a lot now. Regards Brett

Hi Rod
We would like to say thank you sooo much for taking our boat on consignment & giving us the opportunity to sell it in your yard. It’s been amazing dealing with you & the AMC team. When we decide to purchase another boat in the future, we don’t have any hesitation coming to see you guys. Definitely 5stars & we will be sure to recommend you to friends/ family.
Thank you again & stay safe!

Hi Rod
Just an email to thank you for what you did during our business together making sure the trailer was heavy enough and being honest to let me know I really appreciate it mate. I’ve used it now 3 times and absolutely love it, my 14 yr old son drives it on now, it’s so easy You make us look like pro’s at the ramp now. Please thank all the boys involved.
Thoms C, April 2020
I’m very happy with the service from AMC. That’s why I keep coming back.
Rod has always treated me well and AMC is the best Marine company I have dealt with.
Thanks again.
Neil S, February 2020
The service we receive is always 10 out of 10. Communication is always good and we have had that from AMC.
Karen T, February 2020
JULIE IS 5 STAR! Ordered a tiny little part that I couldn’t find anywhere in Australia for a Suzuki DT40 and I called her at 450pm… she had it at 11am the NEXT MORNING somehow. Magical powers? Perhaps… but I am very impressed. Thanks Julie and AMC

Did the first 3 hours run in today. I love the boat, I’m so happy, everything works better than I could’ve imagined, the mapping on the Garmin is amazing, the electric holds on the spot so well and the boat itself handled the chop today with no dramas. It’s exactly what I needed, thank you so much for everything!
Cheers, Clint
All round good service, purchased a Suzuki 140 outboard from AMC, from my research the best of the bunch, AMC picked up my boat from the marina, gave me a fair price for my older Honda, fitted it well, water tested it and delivered it back to the marina, how easy is that? I like easy, Paul is a straight shooter with no bs and you can believe what he tells you, good to deal with, Craig (i think that’s his name) delivered the boat and spent time going through the details, top bloke, at my age I have dealt with a lot of people, some good some not so, happy to give this business 5 stars.

Hey Rod,
Hope you’re well mate!
Got our first fish in the boat today. 25kg 1.4m jewfish. It’s a bloody beauty of a boat!

Thanks for the swift and excellent service on my new Haines Signature delivery. We were very impressed with the high level of professional attitude and courtesy we enjoyed at your dealership. My last boat was a Haines Hunter. The Signature is a far better boat in every respect. With more storage space, neat interior finish and excellent exterior appointments. The best feature of the boat was the concealed wiring harness behind the console. The Hunter had the whole heap of wires hanging behind the console. Special thanks to Rod and technical staff that worked on my boat. Water testing my boat on Sunday. Regards and good sales to you. Asha and Narendra Prasad. ps pls pass my message to the Signature factory at Wacol.

Morning Paul, just wanted to offer Karen’s and mine’s deepest thanks, for the great job you guys have done, and the wonderful experience we had in making our new purchase. We were able to enjoy a fabulous Sunday morning on a glass-like Moreton Bay, the perfect day to run a new engine in. Everything ran perfectly for us making a great day out. It was hard to be patient as I could tell she just wanted to run away. The boat was everything you said it would be, and more. Once again deepest thanks and a pat on the back for a job well done.
Cheers Mike.

Hi All, well this weekend I upgraded my Fibreglass boat to the boat of my dreams the Bar Crusher 575C in Blue. A Gen2 model in Blue with a 115 Suzi from AMC Marine Springwood and I must say the service from Mr Paul Kelly was 1st class and second to none. Picked it up Saturday morning and took it out that afternoon north of Moreton Island and christened it with a dozen nice mix of Pinkies and Grassies. WOW, what a weapon, it blows my previous same size glass boat out of the water. One tough machine.. As the saying goes. You pay for what you get… No need to send photos I’m sure we all know what they look like. Many, Many, Many exciting days ahead… Thanks for having me on board fellow Crusher owners. P.S – I will send photos when the stonkers come aboard. Happy Days…

Hi Rod,
I know you are probably flat out but just wanted you to know I took my “girl” out this morning to Tin Can Bay and did the initial 3-hour break-in ( and yes I do realise I have another 7 hours to go). Out of the 3 Formosas I have owned, the package here is a beauty! Mate, I really appreciate your time and effort to give an old man an early Christmas present and I wish you and your family only the best over the festive season and next year. One last thing; hatch covers for the batteries; just make a note and get back to me after the silly season with a price and postage. Thanks Rod.
Kind regards

I recently sold our Chaparral Fish and Ski boat through AMC. It’s definitely a recommendation from me if you ever need a new boat or need to sell your boat. These guys are hard working, honest and great to deal with. HIGHLY recommended.

Having previously bought and sold boats and a boat trailer through AMC, I recently did a deal on a new Suzuki outboard. Besides the sensational deal, I cannot praise the staff enough for brilliant service and a quality job, right down to the smallest items. Highly recommended!!!

Hi Rod,
So far it’s been easy and a pleasure to deal with you and your team, we are always made to feel welcome and looked after like a valued customer. My next email will state all the extras I require at the engine fit out stage which I guess won’t be that far away.
Kind Regards

It is a pleasure to provide some feedback on our experience with our new Hooker Centre Console 8mtr Pro Fisherman. Over the past 15 years we have purchased 3 new offshore boats and our new Hooker Centre Console is without doubt, by far the most impressive boat we have had. The layout is perfect, the quality of the finish is excellent and the feedback during the build phase was exceptional. John and his team at Hooker Boats in Cairns are very professional and great to deal with. AMC in Brisbane did a great job fitting out the motors, electronics and the alloy trailer. The whole package with the twin 175 Suzuki APX motors is a perfect match when we take it out in open water. Economy is above expectation, burning around 1 > 1.2 ltrs/km with a crew of 6 and a full fuel load. At 4500 RPM she runs along comfortably at around 52km/hr. If we were buying another boat we wouldn’t change a single thing, or who we would choose to deal with. She is not just a stunning craft that gets a lot of drooling boaties attention, she performs amazingly well on the water. Thank you Lindsay and the AMC people and John and the Hooker team. We are very satisfied and happy to speak to any prospective buyers who want more info. I do have some on- water photos that I shall forward when we get home in a couple of weeks.
Kind Regards and thank you all.

I brought my Aquamaster off the boys at AMC boats. They were very helpful because I live near Mackay and work in WA. I had to leave the boat with them for a few weeks which wasn’t a problem, there was no pressure to pick it up and when I was ready they had it all washed ready to go and any advice I need they are more then happy to help me out. I would buy another boat off these guys anytime.

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with the team at Australian Marine when I purchased a Haines Signature 580BR. I found the staff to be most helpful and Lindsay McCullough was a very nice man to deal with and I would recommend the team to anyone looking to buy a boat. The boat is great and handles the rough water well and the kids love going out on the water as the boat is safe and fast. Performance wise the 200 Suzuki has been exceptional and the fuel burn is in a word unbelievable compared to other motors I have had in the past.

A big thanks to Lindsay and Australian Marine Centre for delivering my Formosa 660 Centre Console with the Suzuki 225. From day one ordering with many options nothing was a problem. Formosa built the boat with high quality and on time. The fit out of the boat at Australian Marine Centre was so easy. Nothing was a problem for them. I have had the boat now for 3 months and it’s been faultless. Thank you again Lindsay and all the staff at Australian Marine Centre for my dream boat.

“Tom from AMC was able to get me the perfect tender for our 38 ft sports cruiser. The high quality finish of the Smartwave 2400 compliments our boat. The tender is light, unsinkable and maintenance free. Set up on snap davits, launching and retrieval is a breeze. Nothing was too much effort for Tom, sourcing specific manufacturer’s information and providing outstanding after sales service. The perfect combination of a great sales experience and a great outcome.”

Hi Tom
Once again I just want to say thanks for everything that you (and the team) did for me in the searching and eventual purchase of my Formosa. I know it took a while to find the right one, but I really appreciate you keeping in touch and letting me know of anything you came across that may have been suitable. In the end, I got exactly what I wanted thanks to you!The friendly service and professionalism of the team there at AMC is just awesome. Being my first boat I was a bit wary and unsure about it all, but you guys made the whole process such a great experience. From my first phone call chasing information, right through to the eventual purchase and after sales service, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with yourself and all the staff at AMC. I’ll be making my way back there for boat servicing, and maybe even an upgrade one day, so I look forward to catching up again.
