After 30+ years at our current location, we have outgrown our site and we have placed our property on the market, with the intention to move to a larger purpose built site. So it's business as usual for now and well in to the future. Watch this space for further updates.

Mercury Marine is asking customers to 'Unthink' everything they know about FourStroke outboards with the introduction of its all-new 75, 80, 90, 100 and 115hp FourStroke outboard models.
Cutting-edge engineering has delivered a compact and low weight package from a 2.1-litre, four-cylinder, eight-valve, low friction valve train with single-overhead-cam design, to provide outstanding torque and horsepower.
At 2.1L, the new Mercury's have one of the largest displacements in its class, and deliver up to 23% more torque over previous FourStroke models.
In fact, despite their larger capacity, the new 115hp FourStroke model is the lightest on the planet, coming in 9kgs lighter than the next closest competitive FourStroke product. So light and compact, the 75-115hp FourStrokes even trump Mercury's ever popular 1.5L OptiMax direct-injection models in the weight department.
Unbelievable fuel efficiency is also delivered, with the new 115hp model offering up to 14% better cruise speed economy over Mercury's previous FourStroke model.
The new Mercury FourStroke engines are based on the same architecture as the extraordinarily reliable and extremely popular Mercury 150hp FourStroke, prized for its simplicity, efficiency, and strong balance of durability and performance. And unlike competitive 4-Strokes, the lower friction valve train is maintenance free for the life of the engine, meaning less time in the workshop and more time on the water.
Like all of Mercury's engines, the new 75-115hp FourStrokes have been tested mercilessly to make them more durable and reliable. Over 17,000 hours of testing, including vicious log strikes, saltwater spray booths, high humidity chambers and hot and cold water temperatures, and hours of endurance testing, mean Mercury has gone even further to ensure these new engines are the most durable and reliable yet.
BL Marine is proud to announce that we were awarded the 2013-2014 Victoria/Tasmania Stacer Dealer of the Year Award. We look forward to sharing many more successful years of partnership with Stacer.

The 2013 Melbourne Boat Show was recently held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 14th to 17th June 2013.
BL Marine was excited to showcase the new Matrix MT-X hinged folding tower, the first of its kind for an Australian manufactured boat.
Also on display were the 2013 range of Yamaha Waverunners, Matrix Expression and Supersport ski/wake boats, and a range of Crownline bowriders which included the 18SS, 19SS, 19XS (latest release outboard), 215SS and E2. There were also a comprehensive range of Stacer aluminium boats with both Mercury and Yamaha outboards.
Matrix has designed the hinged MT-X wakeboard folding tower, the first of its kind for an Australian manufactured boat. With no tools required, its simple and quick to use. No longer is folding the tower a two person, 10-minute chore at the end of a long day on the water.
"This is a breakthrough for the Australian market. We've seen these easy to use hinge towers on US boats, but it's great to see an Australian manufacturer take the initiative and develop a folding tower for the consumer who prefers to buy an Australian manufactured boat". Craig O'Donnell
