About Us

Game and Leisure Boats modern office is located within the Runaway Bay Marina complex on the Northern end of the Gold Coast, Queensland.

We specialise in sales and service of high-quality new boat brands, with exclusive dealerships from arguably the World's best boat builders and our experienced team also provides a comprehensive used and brokerage boat sales operation.

Conveniently located 1 hour south of Brisbane or 45 minutes North from Coolangatta airports, our facility has waterfront access to the Broadwater with the Pacific Ocean less than 5 minutes boat ride away. Our convenient location allows for fly-in, vessel inspection and fly-out within the same day for inter – intra state residents. And a central location for those travelling from overseas.

In 2021, one of Sydney’s leading retail boating specialists Short Marine took over Game and Leisure Boats, and now the two operations are overseen under the guidance of brothers Ryan and Sam Short, strengthening the representation of the key global brands and the local sales and service operations

over the past 15 years, Game and Leisure Boats have had the pleasure of providing a wide range of vessels and services to an even wider range of clientele.

Our team includes Company Directors Ryan and Sam Short, Chris Jones as General Manager in Sales, Jackson Ford as Sales Consultant, Graham McCloy as Sales Consultant, Caren Brennan in Reception/Administration, Montana as Sales Assistant/Reception, Geoff Burton as Financial Controller, Norm as Service Manager, Matt in service and more to soon join us as we grow our service division.   

To assist in your boat ownership experience we can offer trade-ins on new boats, arrange competitive finance and insurance as required.

We have a high visibility street frontage yard for trailer boats and wet berths on the marina's “A” arm for on-water display. With the facilities of the marina including trailer launching ramp, forklift, hardstand and travel lift operations, we can provide a complete service from buying, selling, maintenance, refits and repairs.
