As Australia-wide marine finance broker-style lenders we’re interested and stay across what’s happening in boating from coast to coast. Of particular interest on the west coast in coming weeks is the Fremantle Boat Show to be held in early March.
This show combines boating with a festival of seafood in what looks like a must-attend for boating enthusiasts in the Perth region. For those in the market for a new boat, there will be a great line-up of models and brands on display.

The Fremantle Boat Show and Seafood Festival is presented as a showcase of big boats and sailing vessels in the fishing boat harbour and along the Freo Esplanade.
This is a massive celebration of both boating and the great seafood that Western Australia has to offer. As well as local produce, visitors will also be able to celebrate WA’s wines, boutique beverages and craft beers. There’s plenty to suit the entire family including demos of fishing and cooking the catch.

Attractions at Fremantle Boat Show
The festival of seafood is a major part of this event and the food and cooking attractions are sure to attract plenty of attention. The Seafood Conversation Stage is set to be the main one. This is set-up on a stage, with Don Hancey, the WA Food Ambassador heading up the action.
Don will be talking with a collection of the best chefs in Fremantle as they cook some of their favourite seafood dishes. Visitors not only get to listen to these experts but pick-up some handy seafood cooking tips from the demonstrations. And taste some of the creations.
An important focus will be educating visitors on the state’s sustainable fishing practices. The stage runs daily and visitors can check the specific timings at the event website.
Seafood is great cooked on the BBQ but some can struggle with getting it right. Don’t worry, Bart Beek, a celebrity chef with impressive credentials, will be doing BBQ demos to show how to prepare seafood perfectly on the BBQ. Bart’s appearance will be between 11am and 3pm each day.
Buying at the Fremantle Boat Show
Boat shows present great opportunities for buyers. With a number of models set-up within close proximity, the situation offers the ideal scenario to move from one to the other to compare features up-close. Buyers can discuss specifics with numerous representatives in the one location and save time with the usual process of having to visit multiple boat dealers on separate occasions.
But shows can also present temptation. Buyers can be tempted to jump in and buy before having their finance sorted and end up with post-purchase issues. They may also be tempted to sign-up for whatever boat finance deal is made to them on the day. Not perhaps realising that a cheaper loan with a better interest rate could have been secured through Jade Boat Loans.
For buyers with even the slightest inkling that they may place a boat order at the show, we strongly encourage you to speak with us before the day about pre-arranging finance. We offer pre-approved boat loans across our portfolio with the Secured Boat Loan the most suitable for most recreational boat buyers.
These loans can be arranged ahead of purchase at our lowest boat finance interest rate available at the time of application. There is a time limit on how long the loan offer is valid for. But there is no obligation. So if the order is not placed and the offer not taken up, no problem.
