I've been in the industry for over 30 years now and for the last 18 years I've worked within Lawrie’s Boat Services on the Sunshine Coast, where it began as a one man show with one shed. I now have four sheds, a chandlery and a talented team of 15 - 20 skilled workers depending on workload.
I've designed designed and built dozens of catamarans, trimarans and monohulls from start to finish which has provided me with an extensive working knowledge of ALL boats. These days I do vessel maintenance, refits, resprays, motor installs and stainless work.
Ashby Boat Builders is one of the preferred insurance repairers for Club Marine, Nautilus, Youi, QBE, Pentanious, Suncorp and RACQ.
I live around the corner from my business and pride myself on my workmanship.
