From the early days back in 1998, Edenvale-based Boating International has grown in leaps and bounds, moved from strength to strength and has always aimed to be a step ahead of the competition. Leisure Boating takes a look at what all you can find at one of South Africa’s most diverse and equipped marine leisure and lifestyle businesses.
Boating International – arguably, still the best marine and lifestyle business in town!
As the times have moved on, so has Boating International. Operated by an experienced and enthusiast group of professionals, they ensure that all customers’ needs are taken care of, and that every product they choose, is suited towards their lifestyle — it’s what they thrive on!
The team is led by Dean Levy, who is a well-known figure in the boating industry. From his early beginnings in the marine world as a Springbok barefoot skier, to owning and managing Boating International, Dean has tasted much success, and is definitely the “go-to” man with anything boats and boating-related.
Local is lekker!
Boating International stocks a large selection of locally manufactured boats such as the exclusive Sunsport, Infanta inflatables and Ace Glider range of boats. The Ace Glider is extremely popular amongst offshore fishermen, and is regarded as a dedicated fishing machine!
On the imported side, Boating International also has the agency for the Malibu range of boats. This highly
capable range of wakeboard and waterski boats not only considered as one of the best in the world, but also untouchable in the world of watersports. Boating International’s Malibu boats range from the 20-ft Response to the 247 Sunscape.
In fact, as we speak, Boating International is busy offloading their new 2012 Malibu range of boats from the container! They aesthetically eye-pleasing wake and waterski boats will have you cringing if you don’t own one yet! See our Boating News section (pg. 109) for more details on the 2012 range of Malibu boats.
When it comes to motors, whether it be outboard or inboard, Boating International have a long-standing relationship with Rutherford Marine and Mercury motors to power their boats. Boating International is Africa’s largest Mercury dealer, and provides services and parts for recreational and commercial marine applications. Their impressive portfolio includes Mercury and Mariner outboard engines, Mercury MerCruiser sterndrive and inboard packages, Mercury propellers, Mercury SmartCraft electronics as well as Mercury and Quicksilver parts and oils.
Toys for boys, and girls!
Boating International also stocks the widest variety of spares, accessories and watersport equipment in South Africa. From general spares for your boat, to electronics, to safety equipment, to sporting equipment, to clothing — they stock it all!
With partners such as Lowrance, Liquid Force, Salomon, O’Neill, Burn and many more, you can rest assured that Boating International will have everything you (and your friends and family!) will ever need to enjoy hours of fun on the water. Life vests, skis, kneeboards, wakeboards, wakeskates, wakesurfers, tubes, ropes, helmets, you name it, they stock it!
Get down to your one-stop lifestyle shop!
Whether you’re looking at getting your skipper’s licence, buying a second-hand boat or safety equipment, looking for reasonable insurance quotes or attending a workshop, all is possible at Boating International. There is nothing marine and boat related that you WON’T find at their shop premises.
They also stock a large array of pre-owned or as they like to say “pre-loved” boats. The reason being is that Boating International only stocks second-hand boats that have been loved, taken care of, and nothing less. From jetski to sport boats, to cruisers, to offshore boats, Boating International has something for everyone!
