At the helm is Darren Finkelstein ‘The Boat Guy’ with over 35 years of boating experience to share.
Considered by many as an industry expert, Darren has an active media presence. You will often hear him on the radio, read one of his three bestselling award-winning books on the topic of boating, naturally.
Listen to Darren on radio 3AW as he delivers his unique Beach N’ Bay reports <live> during summer. Watch Darren on Foxtel and ch7 presenting for the TV show “All About Boats” and the on-screen presenter and ambassador for “Life’s Better With A Boat” campaign for the Boating Industry Association.
“I want residents to be proud of their community and boaties to come to Wyndham Harbour and experience a really good day on the water” so they’ll want to berth here for the long-term.
Darren loves coffee and talking boating, so make sure you catch up!
