Australian owned and operated, Telwater produces up to 30 boats per day and is supported by approximately 200 dedicated staff.

Telwater is a privately owned company and specialises in the design and manufacture of Australia's leading aluminium boat brands, Quintrex, Stacer and Savage, as well as Savage Fibreglass boats. Telwater is also the Australian distributor of Evinrude engines.

Managing Director Paul Phelan and Chairman Bruce Shepherd bought Quintrex Australia in 1988 and by 1999 Telwater Holding Company was established with the acquisition of Stacer. In 2008, Telwater expanded and purchased Savage Aluminium and Savage Fibreglass. In 2009, Telwater started producing Yellowfin plate boats which have been recently relaunched in 2016 as part of the Quintrex brand.

Since 2011, Telwater and Evinrude have proven to have a successful partnership and in 2016 Telwater became the official distributor of Evinrude Outboards for Australia. Both parties believe this agreement is the next step to providing customers with the best boating experience possible.

Producing more than one hundred boat models ranging in size between 2 metres to 7 metres, Telwater is continually setting industry standards with its innovative designs, advanced technology and constant research and development program.

Telwater Factory Work

Situated on a 8.6 hectare site, Telwater is constantly expanding with a small boat factory, large boat factory and a packaging factory currently spanning over 2.5 hectares. Staff members range from expert welders and painters, research and development technicians and many other various trades, all with the highest quality of workmanship and dedication to the brands.

Within Telwater's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, there is the latest equipment operated by highly skilled fabricators to produce the best possible aluminium boats. Three custom designed paint booths utilise infrared drying and electrostatic technology allowing for boats to be painted faster, more consistently and last longer in the elements. Our ability to plasma cut, press and weld marine grade aluminium, combined with industry leading quality controls enables us to produce a quality boat even our competitors envy.

Boasting over 220 dealers nationwide, Telwater supplies boat, motor and trailer (BMT) packages to its extensive dealer network and was the first aluminium boat manufacturer to offer BMT drive-away packages. The company's success and reputation in Australia has allowed for expansion into the international market, exporting to over 22 countries covering the South Pacific, Asia, Europe and the United States.

By listening to customers' needs, Telwater continues to pave the way and be a market leader in one of Australia's most loved industries.
