We have recently purchased a new Amity sail boat from Australiawide – the second Amity to be built and now named Porthaethwy. We have been delighted with both the process of buying the boat and, now that we have taken delivery, with the boat itself. While we have only been in possession of Porthaethwy for a few weeks, we are delighted with our purchase and feel that we have acquired a quality boat that will give us enjoyment for years to come.
Euan MacDonald and the other members of the team who built Porthaethwy are very attentive to detail and to the particular needs of a new boat owner. During the construction phase Euan was in frequent contact to discuss different options and what would best suit us. His knowledge and passion for traditional sail boats and sailing is very evident.
The team at Australiawide are friendly and generous with their time. We also had the opportunity to meet with the boat builders and the sail maker during the process who, like Euan, have the same enthusiasm for the new Amity.
The post sales service is excellent. Euan and the team are continuing to ensure that any slight adjustments required are undertaken (not that there have been many of these).
We look forward to many happy days sailing on Moreton Bay and to maintaining contact with those who have been involved in providing us with our new boat.
