Robalo appoints Matt and Caitlin Short for South Sydney

Robalo Australia and authorised NSW dealer, Family Boats have struck a surprise deal with Matt Short and daughter Caitlin Short to represent Robalo and Family Boats in Southern Sydney from their Marina at Yowie Bay on Port Hacking.

Matt Short is the older brother of the late Andrew Short of Andrew Short Marine fame which was Australia’s biggest and most successful Searay and Boston Whaler dealership based in Southern Sydney and the Spit on Sydney Harbour. Matt Short served his apprenticeship in the 70s building Savage boats in Melbourne under the direction of his boat building father, Fred Short.

Matt’s daughters, including Caitlin, are the third generation of boaties from the Short family and all work in the family businesses in Sydney.

Caitlin, who is studying for her master five skippers ticket, has been involved in boating for all of her life, from offshore fishing to sailing dinghy & ocean yacht racing and is keen to follow in her great uncle Andrew’s shoes in selling the exciting Robalo range in conjunction with Family Boats.

Wayne Fraser from Family boats said, 'We are delighted that Matt and Caitlin have come on board to offer their years of experience and knowledge to the Robalo product range in NSW; they are a huge asset to Family Boats and I am very grateful and privileged to have them selling Robalo for us.'

'We look forward to seeing these fantastic boats cruising and fishing in big numbers not only from the Southern bays but up and down the entire NSW coast.

'With Family Boats 37 years of outstanding customer service and the Short’s solid boating history, the iconic Robalo brand is ready to kick major goals,' he said.

Robalo boats have been a premium brand in the states since 1968 and currently hold the number 1 position in U.S with a 25% share of the fishing boat market from 18-30 feet.

'The boats themselves are renowned for their quality finish and tough construction, but I was surprised at how soft and dry the ride is,' said Short. 'The hull didn’t slam even in poor conditions and the big beamy designs offer a comfortable platform for ocean fishing & good family fun,' he said.

'I reckon the bowrider versions are a cross between a Searay and a Boston Whaler with all the fishability and space one could ask for but still with top performance for water sports and features such as enclosed toilets on all models with big fuel capacities for longer cruising, they really are impressive and we are excited to be involved,' he said.
