Pelican goes with Streaker
New owners at South Australia dealership add Streaker Boats to line-up.
Streaker Boats has appointed Pelican Marine & RV in South Australia as an authorised dealer. Located at Goolwa at the mouth of the Murray River, Pelican Marine & RV is a well-established business that was recently acquired by David Fisher who comes from a background in the automotive industry.
“That greatly appealed to us,” said Peter Benston, Streaker Boats dealer manager. “Prior to meeting with David and Hazel Fisher we spoke to key suppliers who willingly provided us with positive and strong feedback on the business. We liked it that Pelican Marine & RV is a strong Mercury Outboards dealer and that Pelican Marine & RV has a complementary division in the caravan industry.
“When all the various factors were laid out, we knew that Pelican Marine & RV is an exceptional fit for the Streaker Boats brand.”
David Fisher said that when approached to take on the Streaker Boats brand, he was flattered to be offered the opportunity.
“In the past Streaker has been a Melbourne-centric product, but there is great brand awareness throughout South Australia. We see a good number of Streaker boats on the water," he said.
“Once we looked more deeply into the Streaker product and the engineering which goes into the hulls, it didn’t take long before we were talking about what Streaker models to stock as opposed to whether we would become a dealer or not.
“What won the Pelican Marine & RV team over with Streaker is the quality of the manufacture, in particular the Streaker Composite Build technology which delivers a finished boat which is 100% timber free.”
Pelican Marine & RV now has full access to the Streaker Boats range including runabouts, cuddy cabins and Sirocco bow riders. All boats sold will be factory rigged with Mercury Outboard engines and an Easy Tow trailer.
