How to buy your perfect boat

Buying a boat is one of the most significant purchases you’ll make in your life, besides your own home.


So we know you want to get it right. But where to start? What kind of boat? What layout will you want? Flybridge or sedan? How much power do you need? How many cabins? You may feel a little overwhelmed.


Read on to learn how Flagstaff Marine’s 5 C strategy simplifies this process … so you can be out exploring the waterways with family and friends on your perfect boat in no time at all.

Cruising the 5 Cs

At Flagstaff Marine we’re with you every step of the way. And it’s our mission to take care of you on your boating journey from the day you buy your boat to the day you hand the helm to the next owner.

We are committed to making sure your time out on the water leaves you and your family smiling from ear to ear.

So cruise the 5 Cs with us and know that you’re fully prepared to take yourself and your family on the adventure of a lifetime.


The first part of the Flagstaff Marine experience is CLARIFY your needs so we can identify the boat that best fits your lifestyle.

How are you going to use your new motor cruiser? Will you be doing day trips out on the harbour or heading offshore to do some blue water cruising? Is speed important to you? What about fuel efficiency? Do you like entertaining? How many cabins do you need? Clarifying these points is crucial in helping us help you to make the right choice.


Once we have a good understanding of your wants and needs, we’ll suggest the right model and size boat and present a list of specifications, making sure we have matched your preferences every step of the way.

We’ll help you CUSTOMISE your new boat to suit your personal requirements … things like layout, engine size, colours, finishes, upholstery and more. Even finer details such as technology, entertainment and galley gadgets can all help you create your perfect boat.


Take a test drive on the boat you’ve chosen … you’ll know right away if you’ve found the right cruiser for you. This is a great opportunity to inspect the layout and quality of finishes firsthand, and at this point we will also make sure that we get you the best price possible, so you can reflect on your purchase with confidence.

If you’re happy to CONFIRM your order, we’ll ask you for a deposit and arrange any finance you may need with our trusted partners. Once this is done, the factory will start construction of your new boat.


Your boat will have a hull number and a place in the production line. We’ll keep you up to date with her progress and we’ll also give you an estimated date of delivery.

You can choose to take delivery in Sydney or Europe. Once your boat is ready, we take care of the COMMISSIONING and arrange the handover date. We’ll take you through your new cruiser from bow to stern and we also run comprehensive training sessions.

Our priority is to make sure you’re relaxed and confident on the water.


From the moment you order your new powerboat you’re part of the Flagstaff family and our amazing COMMUNITY. Our mission is to support you, take care of you and make sure your time on the water puts the biggest smile on your face!

We can also help you get involved in some extra training or workshops or take advantage of the many maintenance packages we offer. And when you’re ready to sell or upgrade, our sister company Vicsail Sydney is there to hold your hand, every step of the way.
