Don’t get tide down this summer. ‘Tis the season for having fun.

See what our top 5 toys for summer are!

The weather has well and truly turned towards summer this week and we couldn’t be happier to be on the road to long hot days spent with family and friends.

It’s time to really get out and about in the weekends with friends or really enjoy the school holidays with the kids.

We have a few tips for choosing the perfect toy to make your summer the best it can be!

Keep an eye out for finance company repossessions as there can be some almost brand new assets up for grabs for auction prices!

With some repossessions we also have a third-party mechanic come down and have a look at the items and give us an inspection report. You can download them via pdf at the bottom of the lot descriptions on our website.

If an item doesn’t have an inspection report just ask us and we may be able to put you in contact with a mechanic to organise one for you!


2016 AMM 6100 Centre Console Boat with a Suzuki 225HP Outboard Engine on a 2016 AMM Trailer

An AMM Centre Console boat is big, bold and brilliant! This 6.1m stunner has next to no hours on the clock and has been hardly used!

A boat is an absolute must this summer as you can do so many things with so many different people. Plus, a decent trailer and outboard engine would be nice of course!

Take the kids out on the lake for a fun day of water sports or take your mates out for a few sunset drinks on the water.

AMM’s range sets the benchmark for the plate alloy boat industry and we know that any keen fisherman would appreciate a really good rig like this!

Jet Ski

2017 Yamaha VX Deluxe 1.0 (High Output) on a 2016 Oceanic Trailer

A new model jet ski with low hours is surely on everyone’s wish list this summer!

A three-seater like the Yamaha VX Deluxe is a top pick for families, first time buyers, and even experienced riders. Pick up an almost brand new jet ski for bargain through auction!

A jet ski isn’t just for hooning around on the lake by yourself. A three seater with a tow hook on the back of the seat means there’s more than enough room on the rear deck to get set up in a tube!

If you’re really game, you could even have a go at water skiing or wakeboarding, you just need a rear facing spotter!

Look for an engine that is light, fuel efficient, responsive, and powerful like the Yamaha TR1.

All of the new advanced features on this wave runner really make it seem like its designed for luxury but still has a recreational feel. What a way to spend the summer!

All Terrain Vehicle

2018 Yamaha Wolverine X4 SE (YXF850P)

A popular model of ATV, like this tough Wolverine (which is almost brand spanking new) will make your summer truly unforgettable!

If you want to take the kids out then look for an ATV with a steering wheel and pedals for the break and gas instead of handlebars as they tend to have more safety features like roll cages and seat belts.

Combining tech with tough, an ATV like the Wolverine X4 features comfortable seating for four adults with high-back seats and plenty of legroom.

So, take the whole family or a group of mates on a bush or beach adventure, or set up some ATV racing!


2016 Kawasaki Ninja H2 (plated ZX1000N)

A bike for summer Sunday cruises (or more like Sunday zooming) is a great way to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

If you’re more on the racing side of things, then something like this Kawasaki Ninja H2 would absolutely fly!

For avid bike enthusiasts and experienced riders only, this machine is equipped with a supercharged 4-cylinder engine.

Feel the summer breeze and sun on your back while seeing the beautiful landscape this country has to offer. Go for a ride and enjoy some alone time or gather up some mates and go for a cruise together.

If you ask us, that sounds like achieving road riding perfection!


2005 Coachman Amara

There is nothing that screams quintessential Australian summer like packing the family into the caravan and going for a road trip during the holidays.

Caravans are great for those who like their creature comforts as they often have internal showers and toilets but also can have other small luxuries like microwaves, TVs and heaters.

Look for caravans that offer good specs and that are tourers that you can use all year round.

When it comes to caravans, Coachman is renowned for solid and well-made builds. With a quality build and an interior that still looks good, means that this 2005 Amaras is an ideal buy!

A caravan would be great for driving the dusty roads of Central Australia or finding a beautiful spot to stay a few days in the Far North Queensland.

Summer should get a speeding ticket because it goes too fast! Sign up email alerts for our Motorbike, Marine and Recreation auctions so you’re fully prepared to make the most of it!
