Davey Marine has been recognised as the Casey Cardinia Region’s best new business.
The fledgling business, which is based in Bald Hill Road, Pakenham, is already building a reputation as South East Melbourne’s premium Honda dealership.
Owner Adam Davey said his business, which sells new and used recreational boats, prided itself on quality, whether it’s for an engine service, electronics upgrade or custom fit up of a new vessel.
“We sell a select range of new and used boats and a full range of boating accessories and safety gear.
“We’re the Honda Marine dealer in Victoria’s South East, own the sole dealership ex-factory for Edencraft Boats and are the only Australian dealer for the New Zealand manufactured Blackdog Cats brand,” Mr Davey said.
Staff are fully qualified and the mechanics are highly trained using the latest in diagnostic equipment.
Davey Marine’s Electrical Technicians are also trained on the latest in marine electronic systems specialising in radar, autopilot and full vessel rewires.
“Our key point of difference is our technical expertise and skill which translates into delivery of superior levels of workmanship and customer service.
“To our customers this means reassurance and confidence in our workmanship and a reliable and consistent level of products and services, all of which ensures their time on the water is safe and enjoyable.”
Davey Marine operates in a niche market and goes to great lengths to build brand awareness, maintain brand recognition, build customer loyalty and differentiate themselves from their competition.
The team works across a range of engines other than Honda including Yamaha, Suzuki, Mercury, Mercruiser and Evinrude.
“We also operate a Compleat Angler franchise from our retail outlet and sell an extensive range of boating accessories and safety gear.”
