Chivers Marine in Bibra Lake, WA, has been appointed a Yamaha Outboards and Yamaha WaveRunner dealer.

"When we were approached by Yamaha and offered the opportunity to become an authorised Yamaha dealer, we didn’t think twice about it," said Peter Harburn, Operations Manager for Chivers Marine. "Yamaha has the full range of two-stroke and four-stroke outboards, plus great service and of course the WaveRunners too. This is a wonderful opportunity not only for Chivers Marine customers, but for Yamaha also."

"In order to take on the Yamaha brand we dropped an alternative brand of outboards to ensure that our focus is on Yamaha," Harburn said. "We rate the Yamaha brand name and the product range very highly and we want to project this high regard to our customer base.

Brett Hampson, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Yamaha Outboards, said that winning the confidence of the Chivers Marine management team was a coup for Yamaha. "We have the upmost respect for Chivers Marine and have admired their business for quite some time," he said. "When circumstances allowed us to make a formal approach, we had no hesitation in sitting down with the team and talking to them about becoming a Yamaha dealer."

Chivers Marine principal Laurie Chivers has produced and sold boats since 1958. Today, the company makes
its own Chivers Shark range of plate aluminium boats, and also sells Savage aluminium boats, Northshore fibreglass boats and Rinker boats from the US. The dealership is also an authorised agent for Yamaha Marine Insurance (YMI) and Yamaha Motor Finance (YMF).

Yamaha outboards are available through an Australia-wide network of authorised Yamaha outboard dealers. All Yamaha 4-stroke outboards are supported with a full 4-year manufacturer’s warranty and all 2-stroke outboards are backed by a 3 year warranty (conditions apply).
