New BIA Victoria Board Member

Congratulations to Anthony Cooke for his election to the BIAV Board. This took place last Friday when members of the Chandleries, Associations and Services division convened and confirmed the election of Anthony, unopposed.

Affectionately and commonly known as Moose, Anthony owns and operates Moose Marine and has been a part of the boating industry here in Victoria for many years.

Growing up in the Gippsland Lakes, one of the boating capitals of Victoria, Moose spent his youth in and out of all sized vessels from small tinnys to large sized timber motor yachts. Anthony spent many years working the US ski boat market in Pennsylvania in the USA before returning home to Australia. Since 2010 Anthony has been making a name for himself in the boating world as an expert in marine accessories, particularly marine electronics. Along with running his business, Moose’s current projects also include websites, magazine articles and guest speaking and training workshops. Anthony has many awards in Sales and Service from major suppliers such as Garmin, Fusion, and Raymarine.

BIAV President Scott O’Hare welcomed Anthony to the Board saying “ Anthony will be a great addition. He’s been great on the boat show committee and is so well connected in the industry. We look forward to having him on-board”.

The first meeting for Anthony will be when the Board meets this coming Thursday.
