The Boab Story

How we got to where we are today

Boab Boats was established in 2003 to service a growing need for boat hire in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Since Boab’s inception, the Australian Boating landscape has changed.


“Having owned a boat or three over the years, we know how much fun boating can be. We also know the headaches your own boat can often cause: initial outlay, ongoing costs, storage and breakdowns. The solution? Boab Boats!”


Offering a range of boats at set hire costs, Boab allows its customers to tow (or have a boat delivered) to any destination for a day, weekend, week or longer; as easy as hiring a car.


As more people realise that boating and fishing can be enjoyed hassle free, for little cost and at any time of the year, the Boab Boat Hire name continues to grow. Over the past 10 years the Boab franchise network has expanded across Australia, from the NSW South, Central and North Coasts to QLD and VIC.


Boab Boats has also introduced it's large range of commercial work boats which can be used for any commercial project. We also offer transportation services for added convenience. 


Just climb on board and enjoy your day. Whatever way you choose - Boab Boats won't disappoint!
