Great news! No boat license required to use a Boat 4 Hire boat that has 8hp capacity.
There are lots of boating adventures to do in Melbourne. Why not take the family for a day out (up to five people) on our rugged Polycraft boat? There are miles and miles of waterways to explore, from Docklands to Herring Island, Southbank and the Crown Casino. Where the rowing sculls glide by! Take the other route and go up the Maribyrnong River, Flemington Race Course to the Angles Tavern. Another option is go to Hobsons Bay and Williamstown. Because our hire boats in Melbourne function in sheltered waters, they can operate up to 30knots of wind in contrast to the cut off point of 15knots in the bay!
Under current marine regulations, no boat license is required on engine sizes under 10hp. All our boats are authorized by the government as safe to use. Also, Boat 4 Hire boats come with all the safety gears. And for every boat use, full instruction is provided for you!
