Mike Sinclair, editor in chief of carsales.com, said he was excited to see how the next chapter of boatsales.com.au would unfold under Park’s reign.

“The Australian marine publishing scene is a competitive marketplace. Barry’s passion for boats and experience with a wide range of consumer groups will give him a real advantage,” Sinclair said.

“Boating and the water are part of the Australian lifestyle – and a great way to spend time with family and friends. I’m looking forward to being able to highlight this and work alongside our friends in the boating industry to get more people on the water, more often,” Park said.
