Christensen will 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 to focus efforts on his FC Boats brand after recently establishing 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, 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," Mike Graham said.

"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."

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.
