Time to SELL the boat

  Published June 11th, 2017

It's that time of the year....
Upgrading, Downsizng or maybe it’s Time to move on? 

Typically at this time of the year some boaties have the reality check that they just didn’t use the boat as much as expected.
Perhaps, the kids were doing other things, the weather was far from ideal, or perhaps their boating needs have changed.

Maybe the young boy on the TV car commercial is onto something when he says: “time to get a bigger boat”

Is this YOU?

Then it's time to read the final book in the award winning, bestselling; Honey, let's trilogy.

Honey, let's sell the BOAT!

Written for the Australian marketplace from the unique perspective of an ‘industry insider’ with tons of experience.
