Always consider what you’ll be using your boat for, who you’ll be taking out and your lifestyle before you start looking. Here’s our rundown on the best boats for 2024:
Loved by families and fishers, there’s a reason Quintrex is Australia’s best-selling boat brand! With a wide range, great features and designed for our Aussie waterways, we’ve been proudly selling Quintrex boats to happy boat owners since 1955. From small runabout tinnies like the 310 dart to larger models like Quintrex Bowrider and Quintrex Trident, these boats have been designed to have everything you need for a great day on the water.
Well engineered and beautifully finished, Cruise Craft have been one of Australia’s best regarded names in boating since they launched their first fibreglass model in 1967. Cruisecraft boats have won awards across a range that includes Resort Bowrider boats, Explorer and Outsider fishing boats and Executive Cruisers. Their Outsider and Explorer ranges in particular have received many industry accolades and are loved as well equipped, well-built blue water fishing boats.
Brilliant in rough conditions, Yellowfin Plate Boats were first launched in 1984, and Hunts Marine is proud to be the largest Yellowfin Plate Boat supplier in NSW. Each boat is handcrafted on the Gold Coast by a team of plate boat specialists for quality you can feel in smooth or choppy conditions. Their distinctive 6mm plate hull makes them ultra tough, a real offshore fishing weapon.
The most stable boat on the market, Kingfisher Twin Hull Minicats have all the benefits of a catamaran with the twin hull, easily break through the swell and chop. With their spacious design, and up to 15% more volume than a traditional single hull boat, there’s more room for fishing or relaxing on deck with mates.
Now built in Brisbane, Sportsman Boats are made with high quality Aussie fibreglass and fittings. With a soft, dry ride in an open fibreglass centre or side console, they have a fast growing line up of family friendly fishing boats and are well worth checking out.
Driven by performance, the most recent addition to our range of new boats is Offshore Boats. Award winning and built to last, these New Zealand Boats have a unique 8mm plate hull alloy hull and overall hull design which delivers a smooth, balanced ride. Available in a range of sizes and designs, they’re at their best on open water and are a great addition to our range.

Meticulously hand-crafted in Melbourne, Vic, this range has been designed with tough, versatile hulls for every environment and boating experience. The fleet comprises 9 models from 5.20m to 6.4m.
Manufactured in New Zealand, foam filled and completely unsinkable even when cut in half, SmartWave boats are built using a rotational polyethylene moulding process which produces lightweight, single piece, double skinned boats that are virtually indestructible and unsinkable.
