Hear from Darren's clients before becoming one!
I just wanted to thank you for sending out your books so promptly. I ordered them a few days before Christmas and didn't know whether they would arrive in time but they were delivered on Christmas Eve. My husband and son were so pleased with their gift. Both of them have been reading them and getting a lot from them. They have recently purchased a boat for fishing and the books have been like their "bible". Thanks again Darren I have 2 happy men in my family.

“If you are going to have a mid life crisis, remember what Darren convinced me. “A sports car usually only fits two, buying a boat fits the entire family". So while you go through your crisis read this book because it explains exactly how to buy a power boat so you and your family can enjoy quality time together on the water.”
Patrick Delany - CEO Fox Sports (Sydney)
“I’ve bought and sold several boats from Darren at St Kilda Boat Sales for many of years now and actively recommend him to many of my friends. He sure knows what he is doing. When it comes to power boats, Darren is my MAN.”
Andrew Fox - LINFOX
Great read for the entire family, this book is as much about tourism as it is about boating. I didn’t know there is such a large choice of great destinations to go boating in Victoria. No longer will we be concerned about where to go with the family, I’ll just open a page to follow your advice. Darren really is 'The Boat Guy'.
Matt Rockman – Boatie & Founder of Seek, Entrepreneur
I have never met anyone with such a passion for power boats as Darren. He is a straight shooter with a total commitment to getting people on the water and enjoying the great Australian boating lifestyle. This book is a must read for new and experienced boaties alike.
Ross Kilborn – Boatie & Sport Development Director for Yachting Australia
It’s about time someone wrote this book! Victoria is full of great boating destinations; sadly most of them are kept a secret. The Boating Industry Association of Victoria welcomes this initiative and looks forward to assisting you to spread the good vibe about boating in the wonderful state of Victoria.
Paul Benjamin – Boatie & President of Boating Industry Association of Victoria
Over the years I have owned several racing yachts, but recently decided it was time to have a break from competitive sailing. There was no way I could stay away from the water altogether, and it was not long before I crossed paths with Darren in my search for a modest powerboat. I immediately read his book "Honey, let's buy a Boat" - a fascinating and honest insight into the joys (and potential pitfalls) of boat ownership! His book helped me to determine what my priorities were... Something the whole family would enjoy and be able to easily manage, big enough to entertain friends, enough power to quickly outrun the dirtiest of weather! Ironically, the boat of choice, a Caribbean 32 Flybridge Cruiser, lay in waiting for me at St Kilda marina! Following Darren's own advice, the necessary hull and mechanical checks were completed and a deal struck!
Suffice to say my whole family are now enjoying our boating more than ever... I can't recommend highly enough the value of reading Darren's book and in my case the ease in which he facilitated the purchase of our new boat! Thank-you Darren!

Saw your website http://www.darrenfinkelstein.com and I thought it was wonderful! If I was in the market of buying a boat and I saw this, I definitely would be contacting you. Congratulations on a great job!
