“Bob,Deb & Ryan certainly were genuine in seeing that we had a great experience . Given the wrath of cyclone debbie they must have endured, their professionalism and friendliness spoke greatly to their personal resilience and care for their clients experience. Thanks Bob, Deb & Ryan. Rick Benos”

“Had an excellent day boating on Port Stephens thanks to Chris at Boab Boats. Boat was well presented and in the water waiting for us.at the booked time.. Fish finder on the boat located rhe fish. Would recommend and we have booked foe our next outing on the water. Don ,Melanie and family”
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for hiring us your Boab Boat! We had the best day from Cairns while on our cruise in January 2017. Without hiring your amazing boat our family wouldn't have been able to see and experience the wonderful islands off Cairns such as Fitzroy Island, Little Fitzroy Island and the magical Green Island. We spent the day exploring and snorkelling the magical reefs our state has to offer. One of the highlights of our day was anchored at Green Island swimming with turtles and then a huge GT swam up to us and played in the water with us for ages, unforgettable. Once again can't recommend you guys enough to our friends and family for their next stay or holiday in Cairns – Andrew you are a champ! Cheers :)”
“My family and I want to thank Adam and the team at Boab Boats at Redcliffe. We unfortunately lost Mum recently and her wishes for her final resting place was to have her ashes in the bay. I contacted Adam from Boab Boats and he could not have been more helpful and caring. We are so grateful to you guys!!! Thank you”
“Just had a great day out on Brisbane Water and offshore. Thanks Jason and Ivana for being so friendly and helpful and easy to deal with. I found the Sportsrider was the perfect size and power for the family. Plenty of room to move and stow the water sports gear, easy to handle and plenty of get up and go to get places. Also surprisingly easy to tow and launch. Can't wait for the next time we hire. Fantastic!”
Thank you so much for your expert advice and service. Hiring the sports rider for for our trip gave us the opportunity to explore Hazelwood, Hook, Hamilton and Whitsunday Island whilst we camped at Whitehaven Beach. Our family snorkelled, fished and rode the biscuit in various bays around the Whitsundays. A fantastic holiday!
Recently hired a sportsrider for our 2 day holiday at sanctuary cove . Dale from Boab was at the spot we had arranged the previous day on time if not a little early, dale briefed me on safety aspects and a little genral knowledge about the boat and set is on our way . The boat was just as we had expected, performed very well , and thanks to that and the friendly and professional service that dale provided, this will not be out last visit. Highly recommend, Thanks dale and Boab for a fun couple of days!
What a day!!!! My husband was lucky enough to find Boab Boats whilst googling boat hiring options for us to explore Whitehaven Beach at our own pace and boy did he struck gold!!! Bob and Debbie you are absolute superstars, your customer service is above and beyond and I could not recommend you highly enough to anyone wanting to hire a boat from Airlie Beach. We had an incredible day on our Sports Rider exploring the Whitsunday Islands, Whitehaven Beach was by far our favourite, there were a few tours operating at the same time we were at the Hill Inlet lookout, and I can tell you we felt very spoilt knowing we could set up our shade tent anywhere along Whitehaven Beach, whereas if we had gone with a tour we would have been limited by time and location. Which leads me to my next recommendation, I was extremely impressed that they offer hire on other items such as esky filled with ice, shade tent, snorkel gear, tube, skis……for avid water skiers this was music to our ears. Unfortunately we didn’t get enough time to ski or tube, for the couple of hours we thought we would spend at Whitehaven, we ended up spending a good solid 5 hours, so we finished our day with snorkelling at Blue Pearl Cove. For a family of 5 (kids 13, 15 and two) the sports rider was absolutely perfect, our youngest comfortably slept on each leg of our journey. Thanks again Debbie and Bob, we have photos of memories that will last a life time.
“Thank you John for yet another pleasurable and easy boating experience! Your customer service is fantastic and you make everything so easy!”
“Hi Tim, a big thank you for yesterday! We thoroughly enjoyed the day, and the boat was excellent. We look forward to our next day on the water. Cheers!”
I have been a customer of Boab Boat Hire Jervis Bay franchise which is owned by Scott Stevens and he's lovely wife for some twelve months. In the beginning I didn't have a boat licence and therefore my daughter and myself hired he's smallest vessel (which comfortably holds four adults but has a governed engine allowing unlicenced skippers) 0n St Georges Basin. We had a great time in each occasion. I then utilised Boabs licence training course to obtain my boat licence. I can comfortably assure anyone this course is a very indepth and educationa coursel. Most other companies will have a large number of applicants watch an on screen program before taking the same large number of people out on a vessel where they will spend 20 minutes behind the tiller. With Scott I underwent an indepth on-line course before spending 6 hours on the water at the tiller myself (no other trainees onboard) before earning my boat licence. Since then I have hired several of Scotts boats from the smallest to the largest 6 meter centre cab where I have taken my 9 year old daughter both inside Jervis Bay where I have footage of her leaning over the bow within reaching distance of several bow riding dolphins (if she was game enough) screaming out "this is the best day of my life"!. The following day we left the bay and spent four hours following a pod a four MASSIVE Humpback Whales as they migrated up the coast. This is ontop of the many large fish she has caught from Barracuda to Kingfishfish, Snapper, Sharks etc etc. These are memories she will have for life. Despite being a customer of Boab Boat Hire Jervis Bay (Scott Stevens) I have also become a very close friend. My daughter loves attending he's property in Woolomia where she gets to play with Scotts dogs Bindy and Diesel along with he's horses. Ontop of this Scott has shared many a beer and dinner with us at the Husky Pub (Oh sorry to the new owners the "Huskisson Hotel", Snobs!) or the Husky RSL. Think about this, if you were to buy the same 6 meter vessel with all the bells and whistles that Scotts boats already boast you wouldn't have much change from $100,000. You also have to register, insure and maintain the vessel. For less then $500 from dawn to dusk you can hire the vessel that Scott will launch at your choice of boat ramp and retrieve and clean it at the end of the day! He also stores the vessel in he's own shed! How many times would you have to hire the vessel (especially if sharing the cost with a friend or two) before you could recoup that $100,000 expense in your own vessel that you have to register, insure, maintain, clean and store somewhere? You do the math. I am a very happy customer of Boab Boat Hire Jervis bay and will continue to remain one. So much so I have already hired the 6 meter Centre Cab on the second week of the September School holidays for two days and improve on my daughters life long memories, plus catch a few Kingies!
Was a great day out off airlie beach. The boat had a good four stroke motor with sounder and gps to help us find the fish and boab were a pleasure to deal with.
Just wanted to thank Dave for the excellent day on the water. Carol and I thoroughly enjoyed our training and we appreciate that the training that was delivered today was an excellent value offering. We would not hesitate to refer friends and acquaintances to you based on our experience today.
“On the weekend 4 of my mates and two kids we hired the six metre centre console went out to The Twelve Mile and got some great size fish I would like to thank Boab Boats and David from Mooloolaba for the excellent service walk on walk off I highly recommend this  service and I can't wait to rebook it again so we can do it all over thanks again David for a great day”
“Yesterday I took my first offshore rental fishing boat trip. We used a Boab 6m Centre Console boat. Built to last and with all safety and useful equipment a fisherman could want. David Lucas was punctual and detailed with his briefing. He made the launch and pickup really painless. In between we had a great day on the reef, catching a few fish and we can't say enough good things about David and his boat.”
WOW, what an experience in service. Digger was early, met us at the Caravan park, loaded all our gear and numerous eskys and drove them to the ramp and loaded them onto the boat.. At the ramp, formalities were kept to a minimum, if you own an offshore fishing boat your expertise is immediately recognised. The boat was fully equiped and extremely comfortable. Secure waterproof storage would have been a bonus as we were not prepared, however Digger suggested using their "emergency box" as waterproof storage for our phones etc., worked a treat. Digger offered suggestions for fishing spots and we were away. We won't comment on the fishing or the weather, however as the squall came in and drenched us, our return to the ramp was early, and without having contacted him, Digger was waiting for us. He had assumed that we would be wet and tired and would head for the comfort of shore, and he was right! Again everything was unloaded and delivered back to our cars at the caravan park. You can't get this style of service in a luxery 5 star hotel. To save extra charges, Digger suggested I follow him to the local servo and refuel, he did the refuelling and I did the paying, all of $20 for a day out on Morton Bay. The service received by BOAB at Redcliffe/Scarborough can only be described as fantastic. I am going to sell my boat and use BOAB for my fishing outings from now on. My boat costs, 35k over five years, 7k per year + rego, insurance, servicing = $700 per month, ok I have a well used boat for sale for maybe 12k after 5 years but BOAB, $395 per outing, I can fish twice a month, and still be ahead, and I dont have 35k tied up! Please feel to contact BOAB Redcliffe for my details should you wish to confirm these comments. Again thanks to BOAB Redcliffe/Scarborough and especially to Digger for his incredible service. 
This is the 4th straight year I have hired a Boab Boat from Chris at the Port Stephens business and I don't have a bad word to say about my experiences. Chris has always gone out of his way to provide me with the best experience possible each and every time and I have recommended others to him based on this approach. All have been equally satisfied and all have returned to hire from Chris. I don't mind saying that I can be fussy and my expectations are high but I have yet to be let down by Chris and it is this customer centric approach that will see me continue to return each time to meet my boating needs. I might also add that I am not prone to writing reviews, evaluations or taking surveys but in this instance I am happy to make an exception as I feel the service and quality of product is that good.
Hired a boat for 4 days for a trip to Mildura. The boat was perfect for the purpose of skiing, fishing and ferrying many kids around. Would definitely use the service again. Wendy & peter were very professional and easy to deal with.
I just wanted to thank Jason, David and Shane for the fantastic service they offered from the time we booked the big centre cab until the time we came back in from offshore Mooloolaba. The 6.4 metre centre cab is set up perfectly and the communication around weather and ocean and fishing conditions was absolutely exemplary. I highly recommend to anyone if you are ever up around Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast to give Dave or Jason or Shane a call. They put the boat in and pull the boat out so all you do is step on and off. They've got great electronics in the boat with all the GPS marks you'll need and they give you a full brief of the boat, safety and electronics before you embark on your own boating and/or fishing journey. Next time I'm holidaying up this way again, the guys from Boab will be my first port of call.; in fact their mobile numbers are now in the favorites section of my iPhone!
Hi, rented the centre cab and went out for a day on the Harbour and can not recommend this boat enough!! It has world class technology and already pre-programmed spots that deliver the fish!! My Mate and I had one of the best days fishing in a long time. Well worth the money. The service was great, friendly and on time. 5 Stars Cheers
We hired a sports rider through Scott at Jervis Bay for 2 days and I cant speak highly enough of Scott's excellent communication and willingness to meet our needs. From the one on one boating tuition for my 16 year old newly licensed son to the advice on fishing and knee boarding and water sports. We had the best time and highly recommend Scott and Jervis Bay Boab to everyone.
“From the ease of booking the boat to having it in the water ready to go, everything was just so easy. Thanks to Deb and Bob for making our day boating in the Whitsundays all too easy. We'll see you next time.”
Thanks very much to John for being so helpful and accommodating. We hired a Sports Rider to take our kids away on a father/kids camping weekend on the Hawkesbury and headed out in two groups, one on Friday night in gale force winds and the second Saturday morning. Our kids ranged from 2yo to 7yo. John was really understanding and to save us the hassle of mooring the boat overnight, John drove us out Friday night and then again on Saturday morning, handing the boat over then. John did this without hesitation and was really supportive to do all that he could to ensure that we had a great weekend with the kids despite the terrible weather. Thanks John - you really made our weekend. Without your help and support it would not have been possible.
