Crownline’s range of bowrider, deckboats, cuddy and cruiser vessels is now represented in South Australia. The newly appointed dealer is well-known Lonsdale enterprise, Christies Beach Marine.

Christies used to sell the American-made Maxum brand but that company sank under the tidal wave of the economic downturn. The dealership prospered handsomely with Maxum’s range, but with that gone it had to search for a viable replacement.

"During our time as Maxum dealers we lost quite a few sales to Crownline," said Christies dealer principal, Rob Cuming.

"For that reason I was always inclined to keep an eye on what Crownline was doing. With Maxum out of the picture, I actively pursued Crownline distributor David Fraser to secure the agency."

Crownline has been building boats since 1991 and launched in Australia in 2004. Christies will stock the 18SS and 19SS bowriders, both with MercCruiser sterndrives.
