There is a change at the ownership helm of Fish City Albany, with Mike and Rebecca Graham purchasing the leading outdoors and boating retailer from Ross Christensen.
Christensen will still retain ownership of the Hamilton branch of Fish City with both dealerships continuing to run under the Fish City branded banner.
For Christensen, it was time for a change and to focus efforts on his growing FC Boats brand and has recently established a new factory in Hamilton to build the growing range.
“FC Boats is the fastest growing boat brand in New Zealand, we have built over 600 boats in just four years,” says Christensen.
“Selling the Albany branch of Fish City to the very capable Mike and Rebecca Graham will allow me to focus efforts on growing the FC Boats brand even more. It will also allow me to further build on the success and expansion of the already established Fish City Hamilton.”
“I know that Fish City Albany will be in great hands with Mike and Rebecca.”
For the husband and wife duo of Mike and Rebecca Graham, taking ownership of Fish City Albany is a perfect fit for their lifestyle. Both are avid fishers, and are prominent members of the Hibiscus Coast Boat Club and spend a great deal of time on the waters around the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for us both to take ownership of Fish City Albany. Ross has done a fantastic with the Fish City Albany branch since he opened it in 2001, and it is easily one of the more prominent marine retailers on the North Shore,” says Mike Graham.
“We are looking forward to continuing on his great work with the team here and taking it to the next level.”
Fish City Albany will continue to retail FC Boats, McLay Boats, Mercury Marine outboards and sterndrives as well as a wide range of fishing, hunting and outdoors equipment.
