boat manufacturing

Time flies when you’re having fun!

Watson’s Marine has been in the marine industry for 50 years and we can honestly say we  have enjoyed every day of it. Because we are passionate about boats, coming to work has never been a chore for us. We love what we do, and luckily for us, our customers do too.

50 Years in the Marine Trade

On the 28th March 2016 we started to celebrate the fact that our family have been involved in the marine trade for 50 years – but who’s counting?

During this time we have worked out of three Gympie locations and been able to employ 20  staff members. Many of our team started with us as apprentices and went on to become fully qualified Marine Technicians & Aluminium Sheet Metal Welders. We have constructed two purpose-built buildings – one for our retail operation and one for our manufacturing operation.

Boats & Outboard Motors

Boats are our business. Over our time selling boats we have sold seven different boat brands and three brands of outboard motors.

16 Years Manufacturing Aluminium Boats and Boat Trailers

For the past 16 years we have been designing and manufacturing our own Vindicator quality aluminium plate boats and trailers.  Our clients tell us  our boats are one of the best  and safest boats  in the marketplace today.  We are committed to keeping up this reputation. We complete our boat packages with a range of the four stroke Yamaha engines.
