Question:

Jermy was interested in purchasing a second-hand yacht called Jellyfish from black limited. Nawi, the sales manager, during discussions, told Jermy that she considered jellyfish “one of the best yachts one can hope for”. Jeremy told Nawi that he would use the yacht for fishing and traveling from the south coast of New South Wales to the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. Nawi said jellyfish was quite seaworthy and would be perfect for these activities as the yacht had a very good fish finger and a marine radio. On the basis of this information, Jeremy agreed to purchase jellyfish for $30,000. He paid the amount and took delivery of the jellyfish.  After driving jellyfish for a few weeks, Jeremy noticed that the engine of the yacht made some unusual sounds and emitted clouds of black smoke. He took the yacht to North Star Boat Repairers and asked Mars, who was a marine specialist and owner of the business, to take a look at the engine. mars advised Jermy that Jellyfish was not “one of the best yachts” but a very old vessel and the engine was severely damaged for not being used and serviced for several years. It would cost at least $15,000 and a month to repair the engine to make it fit for any purpose. The marine radio was also dysfunctional. Jeremy now wants to return the jelly to black Ltd. and obtain a refund. Advise Jeremy how he can bring his claim under Australian consumer law by referring to relevant legal provisions and case laws.
