Our founders are the brothers Donald and Tony Jarratt, who are equal members in the company, and have been in business together since 1965. Austral Marine can be traced back to their decision to start a boat building operation in 1978 as a sideline to their family business. Austral Marine itself was formed in 1986.
Our staff are carefully selected and specifically trained to work to our required high standard of quality workmanship and care. We focus on producing the best- quality boats possible, and our staff are trained and remunerated with this goal in mind.
We are committed to an approved Equity policy and believe that people who merit advancement, irrespective of colour or creed, will be given equal opportunity.
Our management team includes people of all races, all chosen and appointed based solely on their abilities and commitment to what we stand for and not on their colour.
We have a total staff complement of 135, and believe that together we are one of the happiest ‘families’ to be found anywhere.
