What our clients say about us...
Richard Humphry AO, "Compass Rose" – February 2015
Hamish Macpherson, GB46 “Beluga” - Christmas 2014
Empire Marina at Bobbin Head has provided me with excellent support for over seven years. Top quality professional services at this modern marina makes it easy for my family to continue enjoying what is one of the most pristine environments for boating.
Tim Pines, “Stress Relief” – January 2015
The marina was great during our Sydney visit. Excellent and professional front office staff provided straightforward paperwork and a guaranteed berth at time of booking, were flexible with our arrival and departure dates, and only charged for those nights we used. Facilities are new and clean, the marina is very tidy, and the location is simply stunning. There are also excellent on-site trades (shipwright, marine electrician, marine trimmer) if you have a few things to fix up after a long voyage. We thoroughly recommend Empire Bobbin Head and will return.
Peter Read, “Halekulani” - September 2014
I first met Jason Ash of Empire Boat Sales Bobbin Head 2 days before Christmas. Within 7 days I was the proud owner of a Riviera 33. Jason and the team at Empire Boat Sales delivered a service that I would rate nothing short of exceptional. They went out of their way on numerous occasions for both the seller and myself. Nothing was a problem for Jason. His professional, non-pressured and supportive approach I very much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Empire Boat Sale for the purchase of you next boat.
David Guy, “Time Bandit” - July 2014
I have to say that the process of selling our very much loved boat was a pleasurable and hassle free experience, one that I we look forward to repeating again in the future. All in all a very professional and pleasant experience thanks to the team at Empire Boat Sales.
John Della-Pietra, "Tenacious" - February 2014
Everyone at Empire has been a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. Jason and Nicky have been absolutely outstanding. You have all made us feel valued and appreciated. Nothing is a problem for Jason, he goes out of his way to serve you and he treats you as if you were one of his best friends.
It is not the facilities such as power and water to hand that impresses "old salts" like me. Many marinas have these facilities, but the quality of the people who operate and work at Empire Marina.
My wife and I have lived and owned boats in three states and sailed the East coast of Australia extensively over the past 50 years. The true value of Empire Marina Bobbin Head, is the highly experienced management and staff and the quality of work carried out by many of their permanent contractors.
