To unleash the phenomenal power of 300 horsepower from a supercharged jet or outboard engine — now that’s a choice never before witnessed in the industry …

The jewel in Sealver’s crown, the all new Z7, will give you the ultimate in luxurious comfort, handling and performance.  That’s a big promise I thought!

I witnessed all of this first hand when I tested the Z7 Full Wake edition in our very own Broadwater on the Gold Coast, po...

When adding an anchor to any size vessel, for most boaties, it’s about performance strength and holding power.  

With the wrong anchor or one that simply doesn’t perform you really are in for some sleepless nights and unsettling times ahead!

For many years, I just used whatever anchor has been on the boat from date of purchase; from plough anchors through to large size delta models.

All of these are okay, however, when you start...

It’s another glorious Gold Coast day on the Broadwater, and I was given the opportunity to let loose on the all-new 2020 Sea-Doo GTR 230 for review. I know... Someone has to do it, so I guess it’s me since I have a love and passion for jetskis and anything with serious horsepower!

Built for performance-minded riders, the new GTR 230 will not disappoint. It looks fast even when turned off!

This new model has some new features, i...

Turning your Jet-ski into a boat in less than 30 seconds.

If you ever thought of owning a boat on top of your jet-ski then this is for you.  Being able to use the jet-ski with your mates then come home and load the family within minutes into your bowrider certainly seems too good to be true ?  Well I experienced things first hand when I was offered to test the new 525 Full Wake .  Clicking in my jet-ski and leaving from hope ha...

The ‘Coral IVF’ team led by Southern Cross University’s Professor Peter Harrison, with researchers Katie Chartrand (James Cook University) and Associate Professor David Sugget...

What better way to make a splash in the Broadwater than with the RXTX RS 300…

When Oliver from JSW kindly offered the new 300hp Sea-Doo up to ORM for testing, I was quick to accept with a broad smile on my face.

Well, who doesn’t love a morning out on the gorgeous Broadwater with the hottest and most powerful ski on the market?

One thing’s for sure: this was one very special morning…

Make no mistake; this jetski has serious horsep...

As with all SKiP Inflatable boats the BW380 hull is built using the very best marine-grade aluminium, which offers many advantages over fibreglass hulled tenders, in weight, savings and durability.

With an aluminium hull there’s no need to worry about gel coat chips, or putting the boat on a beach or a trailer.

The weight savings are considerable with the BW380 bare boat only weighing 149kg, which tr...
