Day Cruise

published

A group of 12 of us had the opportunity to enjoy a cruise for the day last weekend and had the absolute pleasure to be hosted by a young lady Stella who made our afternoon a day to remember. A true reflection of good old fashion service. Thanks to her We will now be signing up a for a membership. Thank You for the great day. By the way, Good Luck with your exams!!

Great day out! Hassle free day on a great boat. Highly reccomended to all. Thank you to Pleasure Cruising for making our time enjoyable, dont buy a boat just do what we did join a club and enjoy.

What a great idea

published

Looking to buy a boat but joined the club two years ago. Could not justify spending the money on a boat. Service is top notch. Training program is great value for the money

We are pleased with today’s VCAT decision ruling that you are to pay all outstanding fees. We trust that you will honour the decision by an independent umpire.

Fantastic concept and great service

published

No issues at all. Great service and a great concept. The weather is an issue but it's out of their control. Much better than buying a boat. It's very flexible as well.

Multiple Boats

published

What made me join the club is the idea of being able to use different boats in a single membership. Unlike other memberships were you're confined in one model, you can actually be on the cheapest plan but still be able to use the bigger boats. Technically, the difference is in the number of boating days. So if I want more boating days, I will stick to my own boat class. Sometimes, the family wants to be on the bigger boat so I reserve those ones too. It takes bigger points but that's logical. I like the flexibility the club gives.

Good concept

published

Me and a friend are syndicating our membership with the club. Our boat is R3600 or Dazzler. I actually like this better than the bigger one they have. Its just a personal preference. The handling and performance are excellent and if the sea knots rises, you can batten down the hatches and drive back with no problem. This boat got rough water capabilities. Overall I had no problem with this boat. But since this is a membership, you cant really tell who's gonna mess up with the boat or what not. The guys there take actions straightaway and line the repairs up. The great thing about this club is that even if you can't use your boat due to repairs, you have other boats as a back up.

pioneer member on reckless

published

Joined the club in 2013 and its nice to see that there are more and more people joining. Don't know about the guy who commented here but I had no problem with the policy. I read the agreement and asked questions. Made sure I understand every detail. Its pretty straightforward. Get on the boat, pay for your own fuel, leave the boat that's it. They keep me updated with my points and they have better customer service now. My only enemy here is the weather. If the weather is bad, I have no choice. Needs to cancel. Happened alot of times. But thats understandable

Well equipped boat

published

The best place to setup camp for an awesome weekend in the city. We stayed for a couple of nights on Fairview Rivera and it was excellent. We were a group of 5 and still plenty of room. We enjoyed hanging out at the back deck, barbecuing and drinking while listening to our favorite songs. Staff were all very helpful. We'll use it for cruising next time. Sam

Family Bonding

published

My hubby have been a member with pleasure cruising since 2014. We have class 1 type of membership and our boat there is a mustang model. These days its really hard to find time to bond with the kiddos (me and hubby are both working). But going out on boating even once a month is a big thing for me and my family. The kids look forward to it every time we book online. The boat is nice and relaxing. Kids grow up fast these days and before we know it, they've already started their own lives. Atleast they would have great memories with the family on the water and I have pleasure cruising to thank for that. Also, sonia has been very nice.

Only way to go boating

published

Owned my own mustang sports cruiser but sold it due to a huge mechanical repair bill which was $30,000 which was a huge hit. I sold the boat as owning one in Melbourne is just not worth while. My wife suggested looking at other options I investigated boat share arrangements and come across Pleasure Cruising Club in Docklands. I took out a subscription plan on their midrange boat the mustang 32 that suited our budget and that was four years ago. The step on and off service is just great because we don't like cleaning the boat after our friends. I also can book the boat on line and know it will work when we get to the marina unlike my own boat. The club is awesome and the staff are just great.

AVOID. UNPROFESSIONAL. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.

AVOID. UNPROFESSIONAL. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. The Pleasure Cruising Club owns Boat4Hire. Bought a groupon voucher to rent a self-drive boat and had a terrible experience. I had to wait over an hour when we arrived because no one was available. No apology given. When we explained to [Name Removed] that we had waited over an hour and we were in a rush he was unsympathetic. Instead he proceeded to take his time and continued patronisingly teaching his intern in front of us. Terribly run business, all the rest of the staff seemed just as unprofessional. The only helpful person that day which we dealt with was the intern. Would not recommend.

If you want to deal with a bad company than you have found it here! Every trick in the book is used especially on bogus overcharges so would give them a wide berth or else your temper will sink!

Don't give them your phone number!

published

I made the mistake of giving these guys my contact details, so I could view their pricing. Wow, what a mistake that was! They call me when I'm at the office, begging me to sign up, without even asking if I'm free to talk. They SMS me all the time, with no option to opt out. I can't stop them!
I've reported the illegal (spam) SMS messages to ACMA. Hopefully they'll fine these guys.

Harassing phone calls. Spam SMS messages. Expensive.

It is the perfect alternative to owning a boat !

Amazing boats, clean, easy to use, great friendly staff on departure and arrival
Not long enough !!!
