Pacific Boating turns ten
Birthday bash held for Sydney boat share company.
Sydney-based Pacific Boating recently invited staff and members to its new offices at Sydney Boathouse in Rozelle to celebrate 10 years of operation.
The company has been offering boat share services for longer than 10 years but was previously operating under a different name and has been known as Pacific Boating since 2006.
The company now operates at three locations at Church Point on Pittwater and Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour as well as at Sydney Boathouse. It has a total of 18 boats in its fleet ranging from 29 to 52 feet.
Managing director Phillip Pitt welcomed customers and staff to the birthday celebration and paid tribute to the work of the directors, sales and operations staff and “everybody who supports the business”.
“Our vision was to see a number of people realise their dream that they were able to go out and spend time on a fleet of luxury sports cruisers with a walk-on, walk-off service.”
Pitt recalled how the company began in a small office at the Quays at Church Point before also adding a Cabarita office on the Parramatta River and another at the Spit, both since closed. The opening of the Rose Bay office four-and-a-half years ago really put the company on the map, said Pitt, and over the last two years, the business has doubled in size and now has around 600 members.
“This places us at the very forefront of the industry,” he said. “I don’t know of a business in this industry with a presence like ours in any location around the country.
“It is a credit to the staff, a credit to the directors and we thank the support of the members.”
