  |  First Published: December 2008



Melbourne’s biggest indoor marine dealership has officially opened in Lyndhurst, in the southeastern suburbs around 25km from the centre of Melbourne. New World Honda Marine have shifted their marine dealership from their old home at New World Honda in Berwick, to a massive purpose built showroom and sales yard where you can now peruse your next purchase in air-conditioned comfort.

Situated on the corner of Monash Drive & Westernport Freeway (Melway 96 A 11) this marine dealership is a must visit when purchasing your next boat.

How BIG?

With close to 100 new and used boats onsite, Michael and his team from New World Honda Marine really did their homework when they first started drawing up the plans. The massive indoor showroom has over 40 boats on display, from Honda powered 4.2m Seajay Classics up to the huge 8m Haines Hunter Patriots and Prowlers with twin Honda 225hp outboards and fully decked out with aerials and outriggers.

The showroom is all under lights and all in air-conditioned comfort. A purpose-built dock will surround the boats so you’re not straining to see inside or removing some skin from your shin when climbing ladders to get inside. You can check out the full range, stepping in and out with total ease.

Out in the front yard there are over 50 new and pre-loved boats, ranging from family cruisers, powerful ski and wake boats to solid plate offshore fishing rigs. There has to be a boat in this mix that suits your budget and needs.

Back inside is an extensive boating accessories department run by Mark Lewis (with over 20 years boating experience). This department covers everything from spare parts, oils and life vests, through to flush kits to protect your pride and joy. There’s also one of the biggest up-market electronic sounder, radar and chart plotter displays from the worlds best leading brands including Navico, Lowrance, Raymarine and Furuno.

Last but not least, this place has the great parking, with widest driveways I have ever seen.

Service Centre

Out the back are heaps of fully equipped service bays with a dedicated fit out bay. The service desk makes booking your next service that much easier and with tons of room to swing the Queen Mary if needed, there is no hassle in dropping off or picking up your boat.

Headed by Cameron and David, who have over 58 years combined experience, you can rest assured that your next service or power upgrade is in the best of hands. David is a master technician on all major marine motor brands, so he knows all the ins and outs to keep your boat running at its optimum.
