Swan Boat Hire is a small business which has been run by the Planck family for over 10 years. When we purchased the business in December 1996, it had a small fleet of fibre glass boats and an old shop in need of some TLC. Since then, the six members of the family and our young but capable staff have worked hard to turn Swan Boat Hire into the business it is today.
We strive to provide quality, clean, comfortable and safe boats, allowing our customers to have fun and memorable experiences on the river and hopefully catch a few fish as well. We now have over twenty boats including 4, 5, 6 & 8 seaters tinnies, runabouts, half cabins, cruisers for 7 & 10 people and luxury BBQ pontoons which seat 8, 10, 12 & 14 people. We also have non-motorised craft such as canoes, kayaks, paddle skis and aqua bikes which seat one to three people.
On October 22nd 2004, all the team from Swan Boat Hire attended the Sunshine Coast Excellence in Business Awards at the University of the Sunshine Coast and and came away with two prestigious awards! In 2002, we won the Service Award in the Small Business Category which was a huge confidence boost for the young team.
The year 2005 we were awarded the the Service Award for the Medium Business Category (as we have increased in business size since the last awards) and then were stunned at the end of the ceremony when we were announced at the Micro Business of the Year. So congratulations to all the staff for their efforts over the last two years, without them this award would not be ours.
In December 2006 there were changes afoot. Swan Bites on Bradman, formally Maroochy Snack Bar, began under new management by the successful team from Swan Boat Hire. A young and dynamic team is breathing new life into what was a tired business by improved customer service, providing high quality menus with more choice and the introduction of innovative and efficient practices. Since then Swan Boat Hire and Swan Bites work together in union to provide the best service possible to the Sunshine Coast population.

I booked online for a 12 person bbq pontoon hire and found the process very easy. I had to call and ask about COVID restrictions and found the gentleman to be very helpful. At check in, once again... more »
Easy and fun. The team at Swan boat hire made boating easy. The boat was ready when we arrived and in good working order. Great way to see Maroochydore.
If you want to create superb Sunshine Coast memories than hire a BBQ Boat from Swan Boat Hire! This has been my tenth time experiencing the Mighty Maroochy River on a boat from Mark Planck and the crew. We barbecued, swam, fished and had an all round great time! We have had four sets of interstate and international visitors and this is always our must do activity. Do yourself a favour and hire a boat and find out what I’m talking about. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!
