Seafarer Boats welcomes Dinghy World as new Perth dealer [media release]

Perth boaties can now experience the legendary Seafarer ride with a new dealer, Dinghy World, appointed for the region.

A boating icon since its inception in 1957, Seafarer has forged a strong reputation with the Australian boating community for its build quality, practicality and for having a hull that performs exceptionally well on the water – even under extreme conditions.

Dinghy World owners David and Vince De Luca believe the Aussie-made fibreglass boat brand is a great fit for the boating lifestyle the local area has to offer, with a selection of models already on display at their dealership in Como, south of Perth.

"Seafarer Boats has been held in high regard by boaties for generations and we are proud to be the new authorised dealer for the region," said Vince De Luca.

"We feel the brand is perfectly suited for the waters of WA and are extremely excited to be able to offer the full Seafarer range to our customers," said Vince.

Masterfully handcrafted in The Haines Group factory west of Brisbane, Queensland, the brand boasts outstanding performance, quality, craftsmanship and design, with an impressive list of standard features and premium finishes.

With models ranging from the 4.85m sports fisher (Vantage) to the 6.8m full cabin (Voyager), there's a Seafarer model to suit everyone's needs, whether that be for a family day trip to Rottnest Island or a weekend of offshore sports fishing.

See the Vantage 4.85, V-Sea 5.0 and Viking 5.5 now at Dinghy World, 250-252 Canning Highway, Como or call David and Vince on 08 9367 6555 to find out more.

What John discovered was a boat that was both "great value and a great-allrounder". You can read John's full Vamp review here.

Good Times Marine puts the Vagabond 6.2 and Victory 6.0 head to head

The team at Good Times Marine, our NSW dealers located at Taren Point, recently put two Seafarer favourites to the ultimate test – the Victory 6.0 fitted with Mercury Marine's new 200hp V6 versus the Vagabond 6.2 with Mercury's new 225hp V6 Cold Fusion.

GTM wanted to put the same powerhead/prop to the test to see if the same speed would be achieved based on the power to weight ratio of each boat and motor. Which Seafarer will come out on top? Watch the video below to find out!

If you're interested in learning more about this test you can contact the Good Times Marine team for more info.
