The real Australia is, above all else; a nation defined by its shores and beaches. All of our great country’s major cities sit hereupon, and amongst its nearly 25 million citizens hardly one can be named who doesn’t love a good day out on the sand. Indeed then, it’s no surprise that Australia is, simultaneously, a nation in love with boats and boating; from fishing to speed-boating, and cruising to sailing, almost each and every one of us has dreamt of what it could be like to captain our own vessel, and launch of from the pink and pleasant sands into the rolling, azure hills of Pacific, even if it were only for a little.
It is no exaggeration to say that the boat is a fundamental part of living the Australian dream; of course, Captain Cook first discovered this land by boat, and the first settlers hereof all came in the first fleet by boat. More than that, many if not most of the later settlers and migrants to our great country made their ways here on boats, and many had their first experience of the land of the southern cross in one its great cities’ harbours. So how can you get your hands on a boat of your own this spring? How can you live in the spirit of Australia and set sail in the oncoming heat? Read on to find out.
There are several considerations to account for when seeking to purchase a boat of one’s own. Firstly, the use of the boat. Will it be for oneself alone, or for a family or group of friends? Is it for fishing, or joyriding? Luxury, or utility? These are all factors to consider in deciding upon the specific make and size of the boat which one intends to purchase. The build of the boat will, of course, serve to inform the price range at which one will be looking. For example, a luxury yacht meant for the whole family will call for a decidedly higher price than a one-man fishing or speed boat, with a speedboat costing around $20,000 on average, whilst a yacht’s price can often range well into the millions. In addition to the upfront cost, theres also that of maintenance; repairs, fuel, spare parts, stock and more, which, in totality, can rack up to a rather high price in the long run.
