GraysOnline & d’Albora create new boat sales marketplace

Australasia’s largest online auction company, GraysOnline and Australia’s largest marina and marine services company d’Albora Marine, have partnered to create a new boat sales platform. For the first time, boat owners will be able to access a mass market digital sales platform to sell via auction or private treaty, whilst still having the involvement of an experienced brokerage service.

The new partnership is set to change the secondhand boat sales industry by giving boat sellers more certainty around the timeliness of the sale of their vessel.  At the same time, confidence around the sales result will be made possible by the power of the platform.  Buyers and sellers will also be able to benefit from d’Albora’s wide range of marine services including berthing, boatyard & repair and maintenance services.

D’Albora Marine provides specialist boat sales services from ten locations spread throughout New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria and is the exclusive Australian distributor for Azimut (Azimut Benetti Group).  GraysOnline is the largest industrial, auto and commercial online auction business in Australasia, offering a huge range of industrial, auto, consumer and commercial goods, direct from manufacturers and distributors.

GraysOnline Chief Operating Officer, Jeff McLean, commented, “Australian boat owners take on average between 6-12 months to sell their boat. This marketplace will enable a 7 day auction process whilst maintaining d’albora’s brokerage expertise; a transformational leap for private boat owners.”

Matt Walford, d’Albora Marine Boat Sales CEO said, “We’re excited to be aligning with such a highly regarded market leader in Grays and pleased to be adding such a powerful platform to our existing offering”.
