Looking to sell your boat?
We sell a lot of boats, so we’re always on the lookout for good stock. Using the latest technology, we are able to market our boats to the widest possible range of buyers. When a boat is listed on our website, it is automatically loaded onto 10 leading websites in just 17 minutes. Best of all, our friendly team gets results, selling over 100 boats each year.
If you’re wanting to sell your boat, we have two options for you to consider:
At Challenge Marine, selling used boats is what we do best. In fact, we sell more used boats than any other dealer in Western Australia.
A question we are often asked is ‘What will it cost to sell my boat through Challenge Marine?’
The answer may surprise you: possibly nothing! As a dealer, we are able to accept trade-ins on your boat and can provide buyers with finance. This means we may be able achieve a better price than you had envisaged, with our commission covered by the difference.
When we sell boats on consignment, we make sure that you stay in control of the sale price at all times.
We offer flexible commission arrangements:
- Option 1 – we will receive a percentage of the listing price. This percentage varies from boat to boat (typically reducing as a boat’s value increases). Ask our friendly team for details.
- Option 2 – we will agree on a net amount that you will be paid once your boat sells. If you have a price in mind that you would like to receive, we will simply place a suitable commission on top of that figure and market the boat with this in mind.
Selling your boat has been made simpler and more transparent with our step-by-step process to ensure you receive the best offer possible in the shortest possible time.
Step 1 Tell us about your boat on the form below, or call us on 08 9409 1020 or 0421 540 771.
Step 2 Based on this information we will give you a market price estimate for your boat and explain our commission structure.
Step 3 We then ask you to put together as much information as you can about your boat. The more info we have about its servicing & maintenance, options, electronics etc, the more attractive it will be to buyers who are in the market for a similar boat.
Step 4 Make an appointment with one of the team to drop your boat off to our showroom at 30 Berriman Drive, Wangara or ask about our collection service.
Step 5 When we take delivery of your boat, we will spend some time with you, walking through the boat and the relevant documents. This enables us to complete our comprehensive consignment form where everything discussed is put in writing.
Step 6 We take it from here – as this is where we start to earn our money (bearing in mind we only get paid when we sell your boat). As part of our service, your boat will appear on no less than 10 national websites at no charge to you, placing it in front of the maximum number of potential buyers. After being cleaned, your boat will be displayed in our secure premises and our highly skilled team will start calling potential clients they may have lined up for a boat just like yours. We will keep you informed of the sale progress and will update you fortnightly with our “Sellers Update” email. In this you will find out what the market is doing, which boats sold or went under offer.
Step 7 If we manage to sell your boat for its full asking price we will simply confirm which account you would like us to deposit the funds into. If the offer is close, and the buyer gives permission for their details to be shared, we will email you the offer to purchase for your consideration.

If you want to sell your boat quickly, then give our Dealer Principal, Adam Duncombe, a call on 0421 540 771.
Adam will arrange to meet you at our premises in Wangara, or alternatively he can come to you to look at your boat.
Once we have carried out a mechanical inspection and ensured your boat has clear title, we will be in a position to make you an offer. Please note that we generally look to purchase trailer boats that are less than eight years old, but are happy to discuss all options.
If we are buying your boat, you’ll be pleased to hear that we move quickly. Once the mechanical inspection is completed, it’s basically a same-day process, and you could have the funds in your account within hours (depending on who you bank with).
