Types of Recreational Boats in Melbourne
Given the interesting and varied landscape of waterways in Melbourne, it is to be expected there are also many different types of boats that venture these waters. Choosing the right type of boat is determined by the intended purpose. If you are an adrenaline junkie then you will probably want to look for something with more speed and power. On the other hand, someone who loves to go fishing would be better suited by a vessel with an open cockpit. The types of boats that are commonly found in Melbourne can be divided into three broad categories as explained below.
These are boats that are designed for people who love to entertain on the water and take cruises to different ports. They can be small or very large and may have enough features for a day cruise or more for a month at sea. Some of the common features include bedrooms/cabins, a cockpit, bathrooms and kitchens.
As you might expect, these are boats that are used for both recreational and commercial fishing expeditions. They usually have larger deck spaces which are created by open cockpits at the stern making it easier to fish. Larger boats can have sitting spaces and cabins for overnight stay but the smaller ones usually have the essential amenities only.
These boats are designed to be thrilling and are usually built for speed and power. Most have towing capabilities but they are intended for single time use and not for overnight accommodation.
Boat Ownership Regulation
Although the laws in Victoria concerning ownership and operation of small boats are not very stringent, it is important to be aware and comply with boating law. Most important is that masters of powered recreational boats in Victoria must have a Marine License. The law covers all types of paddle crafts (including canoes & kayaks) and sailing boats that have been fitted with motors. For more information regarding a Recreational Boat Licence click here.
