Fairline have appointed one of the best-known dealerships in Australia, the Chapman Marine Group, as the new Fairline dealer for the eastern seaboard of Australia.

The dealership, now fully operational, includes the states of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The company will trade as Fairline Sydney.

“After visiting boat shows across the world with many offerings on hand, I have found Fairline’s boats to have the best engineering and build quality,” says Mark Chapman, Managing Director. “Fairline definitely offers boats with a difference, with exceptional attention to detail, performance and style, which I am confident my customers will appreciate.”

Mark, pictured, has been a keen boater since the age of 12 and embarked on a marine engineering apprenticeship before setting up the Chapman Marine Group in 1982. He also played a major role in the formation of the Australian Formula 1 Powerboat Association.

Bryan Jones, Fairline Marketing Manager, said: “I had the pleasure of working with Mark at the recent Sanctuary Cove Boat Show and was impressed with the service the team offers its customers, as well as the company’s experience, knowledge and business ethos, which will all be an asset to the Fairline dealer network. We are looking forward to working with the team to expand Fairline’s brand presence in this territory.”

Fairline Sydney is planning to set up additional offices and authorised Fairline service centres along the eastern seaboard of Australia for Fairline owners from Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Queensland and Brisbane.
