Welcome to Boat Central

We’re all about keeping things simple and we want you to enjoy every second that you’re on the water.

If like us you’ve had those days when the engine makes a strange sound, a fender’s been lost, fuels running low or you’ve discovered a tear in the upholstery, we know you’ll love Boat Central.

To save you hours of time searching online, we’ve put everything under one roof so with a few quick clicks, you can find what you need.

With the simple press of a button you can receive quotes from local businesses for whatever you want, from engine servicing, hull blackening to sail repairs. You can even find promotions, events, a bite to eat and fun days out on land for when the weathers bad.

Working closely with fellow Boat Owners and Businesses, our vision to create a one stop shop for all your boating needs keeps things simple and can save you time and money.

Sound Good? Great! Get started by finding the perfect Business, Marina or Fun Day Out close to you!
